You can’t beat Primavera’s choice cuts across indie, dubsteb, electronica, chillwave and post-rock. It’s like All Tomorrow’s Parties (who partner with PS), but instead of Butlins you’re in Barcelona and rather than eating Papa John’s in the cold, you’re wolfing down paella with the Med at your feet. The vibe is relaxed and un-corporate, and no campsite means lots of locals in attendance and apartments aplenty to rent.
Most likely to: Be a wall-to-wall hipster fest. With the hot weather, the probability of side-boob spotting is promising. - Kim Taylor Bennett
