I'm hopefully going to this! I've never been to Spain (I've only been to Europe once) and am pretty excited. I'm in love with Voxtrot and think that the entire line up is pretty amazing.

Me too, I love that album. Surely it won't be in the auditorium - something like that deserves to be watched in the sunshine!

Two weeks! Hee. I had a brief look at the timetable but I just got too excited so I couldn't work out which clashes were most troubling. I'm quite certain that it is going to be utterly fabulous though. Yeah!
Give over.

Without wanting to sound smug, I personally can't see a huge amount of clashes between the main bands I want to see. The funny thing is though that there are loads of people who I was imagining watching in the sunshine, like El Guincho and De La Soul, who will actually be playing in the early hours of the morning. It'll still be great though.

I don't think I've ever been so excited. What a ridiculously good line up.

I can't believe I'm going to see PE do ITANOMTHUB.

Only a week away! Absolutely thrilled to be going to this! Although there's a fair few bands playing who I associate very much with London (or, more specifically, seeing them in music shops in Denmark St) which will seem a bit weird and incongruous. But I'm sure that's nothing a beer or two won't put to rights!

I'm excited about everything around the festival, let alone the lineup (which I'm fantastically excited about, natch) - getting the metro to the venue; playing with the wristband once it gets put on; buying booze tokens; swinging by the merchandise stand; the delicious burritos; everything!

Dont forget the crepes (nom nom nom) and the xurros (nom nom nom) and the tiny intense espressos (nom!) and the sangria in the park before even heading to the festival site (nom nom nom) and seeing the sunrise after dancing your socks off. I can't wait. I've got a massive dose of excitement going on. Hee.

argh! i've been having some serious primavera envy the past few days (i'm cursing myself for deciding not to spend all my money on festivals this year), but you mentioning the xurros has just made it worse. ooh, the chocolate-covered ones were so good...

I managed to see an utterly ludicrous amount of amazing stuff:

Thursday:

Mt Eerie (with Julie Doiron guesting)
The Notwist
Public Enemy
Portishead
De La Soul (with Flavor Flav on guest falling asleep against the decks duties)

Friday:

Trad Gras och Stenar
MV & EE Medicine Show (with J Mascis on second drums!)
Six Organs of Admittance (with Alex Neilson on drums and Elisa Ambrogio on second guitar)
Sebadoh (about 7 songs)
Why? (about 3 songs)
Devo
Fuck Buttons
The Go! Team (about 4 songs)
El Guincho
Holy Fuck (including the superb stage invasion)

Image

Saturday:

Image

David Thomas Broughton (off site, in the Jean Miro Park)
Atlas Sound
Silver Jews (about 4 songs)
Young Marble Giants (about 4 songs)
Dirty Projectors (about half an hour)
Deerhunter (2 songs, shite)
Clipse (awful sound, lasted 2 songs)
Shellac (6 or 7 songs)
Tindersticks (about 6 songs)
Animal Collective

Image
Public Enemy

Public Enemy were amazing, although they did the first half of ITANOMTHUB, they did finish with a bit of Terrordome and a stunning Fight The Power. Devo were probably THE performance of the weekend; Mothersbaugh was a dervish on stage. It was a triumph for the portly has-beens. Except De La, who were a bit generic party hip-hop. But ok.

Image
Devo

Atlas Sound played solo, and threw in a bit of banter and totally won the crowd and played a beautiful set. Dirty Projectors were amazing, wish I'd caught more of them. Silver Jews I don't really care for too much on record but they were superb in their early evening slot. Tindersticks were on at 1am; they'd have fared better on a smaller stage and an earlier slot. Fuck Buttons were fantastic, as was Ben Fuck Buttons' mother who I apparently was next to during their set. She was very proud, and very red.

Image
Animal Collective

Animal Collective were fantastic on a very big stage, Fireworks kind of dragged a bit in comparison to some of the newer stuff they played though. Set of the weekend was probably Six Organs of Admittance. Elisa's amp fucked up immediately and Chasny and Alex Neilson played off each other ferociously before the tech problems got sorted and her guitar took your head off.

Six Organs of Admittance

Six Organs of Admittance

I'd worried about the queues, the beer tokens, the sound bleeding between stages; none of these were problematic. The queues for the indoor Auditori were occasionally long but soon disappeared. The site is so amazing, the setting so perfect. Brilliant stuff. And I managed to bump into shitloads of lovelies. Awww.

what!, that's insane. unless for someone reason it went horrifically wrong in spain. but fireworks/essplode's like, one of the best things that happens. it isn't as dancy as the rest of it, but it's so vibrant and exciting and galloping. fireworks is maybe my favourite animal collective song. ah, man, i don't know.

primavera looks pretty good. how were the notwist? i haven't really heard their new lp, but it sounds a little bit sleepy & syrupy to me.

The Notwist were enjoyable, pleasant early evening slot on a big stage, was very nice. I've not heard the newie. The newer AC stuff like 'Brother Sport' stands out loads for me from their set. Plus they dropped 'Comfy In Nautica' earlyish in the set too which was fucking amazing. 'Loch Raven' and 'Grass' featured too. Brilliant stuff.
