Vida Festival announced last week 30 new names for the line-up. A line-up that is still to get me hooked despite the confirmation of the performance of The Crab Apples, whose lead singer Carla Gimeno I happened to bump into the morning of the day I wrote this news item.
Yet again, a new line-up confirmation for the Vida Festival that didn’t make me go nuts: Rey Lobo. News item here.
Los Planetas have been announced as the latest addition to the headliners of the Vida Festival (piece here) and yet again a new disappointment has invaded my spirit. Vida, what’s going on with you this year?
One day before expected, Primavera Sound has announced this year’s line-up. As opposed to what my emotions/reactions have been so far towards the Vida Festival line-up, I can’t be more excited about this year’s PS edition, with acts of the likes of The National, the great Lorde, The Breeders, Warpaint or Grizzly Bear, among many others. I wrote briefly about it for Hipsterian Circus, while waiting for some quieter times to be able to choose which ones I’m deffo going to see (if no overlaps, that is!).
I must confess I got bitchy-inspired for the item on the Primavera Sound line-up teaser. Apparently, 10 megacool people from all around the world were the lucky ones to get to know the Primavera Sound 2018 line-up before the rest of mortals. In the video, you can see how they react to the announcements. Some of them get really emotional, up to the point that it makes me wonder if their reactions are as natural as they can be or if they are a bit fake, considering that the Primavera Sound line-up contains tens and tens of names that, honestly, who knows them!
Here‘s the piece I wrote for the Iron & Wine confirmation announcement for the upcoming Vida Festival. The only word play that I could find is that it’s just one person, and not some sort of duo. As for the rest, a forgettable news item.
