Primavera Sound 2017: my draft schedule

Time to honour another Blog tradition! As the timetables of the Primavera Sound Festival 2017 have been unveiled, here's our personal schedule on a first, draft, impression (we are still working on it, and some additional bands could/should be added. Being honest, this isn't the best edition for us, on the contrary. Plus, some overlaps (as usual), are also eroding the choices on a year with some gaps with 'really nothing mandatory to listen'. Time to do some 'research' to complete the routes... but hey, discovering interesting bands is one of the most attractive things of Festivals. Anyway, this is what our PS 2017 looks like right now (we are open to suggestions)!


Tuesday, May 30th, Sala Apolo
20:00 Les Sueques (Sala Apolo)
21:00 Let's Eat Grandma (Sala Apolo)
22:00 Cigarettes After Sex (Sala Apolo)
As we are pretty unsure about Wednesday, why not starting the Festival on Tuesday?

Wednesday,  May 31st, Parc del Fòrum
20:30 Local Natives*
22:00 Saint Etienne*
Still under serious consideration, worth going to the Fòrum for just two gigs that are not exactly our 'cup of tea'?

Thursday, June 1st, Parc del Fòrum
17:00 Kokoshca (Adidas)
18:00 Kevin Morby (Heineken) or Jens Lenkman (Hidden Stage)
19:15 Alexandra Savoir (Pitchfork)
20:05 Julia Jacklin (Adidas)
21:45 The Molochs (Adidas)
22:40 The Afghan Whigs (Ray-Ban)
Pretty comfortable and reasonable day with only two choices to make. We have doubts between see Kevin Morby or Jens Lekman (not an enthusiast of Lekman's last record, but never seen him live, going to be a close call). And maybe The Zombies for The Molochs as last minute change. Also, if we have the day off at work the next day or we really want more music we would stay for Kate Tempest and The Damned.

Friday, June 2nd, Parc del Fòrum
17:00 Lawrence Arabia (Hidden Stage)
19:15 Mitski (Pitchfork)
20:15 The Magnetic Fields* (Auditori)
20:50 Mac Demarco (Heineken)
22:35 Grandaddy (Ray-Ban)
22:50 Swans (Pitchfork)
00:40 Sleaford Mods (Ray-Ban)
Just plain 'meh' day for us. It's a pity we have to decide between Mitski and Whitney on a day with not a lot to see (for our tastes, of course). We have to choose which day are we going to see The Magnetic Fields, as our main concert of Friday or as the earliest gig of the day on Saturday.

Saturday, June 3rd, Parc del Fòrum
16:00 The Magnetic Fields* (Auditori)
17:40 Weyes Blood (Primavera)
19:45 Van Morrison (Heineken)*
21:30 Teenage Fanclub (Primavera Sound)
22:35 Hamilton Leithauser (Pitchfork)
23:30 LVL UP (Adidas)
02:30 Preoccupations (Pitchfork)
Probably our 'biggest' day, but painfully affected with the cruel clash between our beloved Angel Olsen and Van Morrison (really? same time? makes no sense at all). The rest of choices should combine well... Teeenage Fanclub, finally!!!

Sunday, June 4th, 
Huge questions marks also for the closing day. Need to listen!
