According to Primavera Sound's press, over 60,000 people per day attended at Parc del Forum with Saturday individual tickets were sold out. The total numbers accumulate up to 210,000 people from 126 countries, with the addition of attendees at the CCCB.

The festival ran from Wednesday May 30th – Sunday June 3rd. Wolf Parade and Belle and Sebastian launched the first day. Thursday would be recognizing as the actual fiesta of seeing the plethora of music Primavera offers. The mainstages Seat and Mango filled with Madrid's chick band Hinds, The War on Drugs, Chvrches, Bjork and Warpaint.

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds was by far one the best performance of the festival, with Cave electrifying the crowd with his charisma.


The BreedersChristopher Kilkenny

Each day had something for everyone. The next day The Breeders, Mogwai, The National, Father John Misty, Tyler the Creator, Haim and Ty Segall and the Freedom Band were the performers. The only unfortunate news of that day was Atlanta trap trio Migos missing their flight to Barcelona.

British grime rapper Skepta came in short notice and Spanish local band Los Planetas filled in Migos time slot. As much to hear Offseat, Quavo and Takeoff turn up the Seat stage, it did not disarm fans and attendees, due to how much Primavera offers.


Cigarettes After SexChristopher Kilkenny

Cigarette After Sex, Jorja Smith and Thundercat are a few acts that need to mention as underated performers.

The final day at Parc del Forum, headliners Car Seat Headrest, Lorde, A$AP Rocky and Arctic Monkeys revitalize the crowds. Beach House brought their dream pop magic at the Apple Music stage.

Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein (SURVIVE) performing music from Netflix's show Stranger Things, at the Auditori de Barcelona was a visual pleaser, drawing eerie synth-wave sounds early afternoon before the festival doors opened.

Jane Birkin sings with the Birkin Gainsbourg Symphonic behind her. The other gems like Slow Dive, Jay Som, Tom Misch, Deer Hunter, Oneohtrix Point Never, Lykki Li, The Blaze are part of the several few that performed beautifully if you weren't in the direction of the Seat and Mango stages.


Ty SegallChristopher Kilkenny

Dj Coco closed the festival, enclosing a 4:15 a.m. set for the remaining several thousand as the Spanish dawn arises.

I'm A Woman And I Think We Need International Men’s Day

Men are our providers and protectors.

Most of you have probably heard about International Women's Day with Snapchat filters, Google Doodles, and "the day without women" started by the Women's March, but have you ever heard about a holiday where the accomplishments of men are celebrated? Such a holiday is in existence and it's called International Men's Day.

International Men's Day was started by Thomas Oaster and was enacted on February 7th, 1992, with the intentions of the promotion of gender equality, highlighting male role models, and focusing on the health and wellbeing of men and boys. Despite what you hear from leftist academia and media, men and boys aren't swimming in a pool of privilege and still face hardships in life. Many of you heard about the phrase "toxic masculinity," which is the concept of how a traditional male should behave based on society's expectations. The most common solution to this problem of "toxic masculinity" is to get rid of it, but that is of no help.

This concept of "toxic masculinity" starts as early as grade school, with boys getting harsher punishments than their female counterparts. Why is this the case though? According to the book, "Reaching Boys, Teaching Boys: Strategies That Work and Why," boys are far more likely than girls to get expelled from preschool, get diagnosed for learning disorders and attention problems, and are less likely to do homework. This type of observance plays a role in the teacher's grading criteria which is more biased toward behavior than academics.

Schools have to realize that boys and girls aren't the same when it comes to learning. Girls are more interested in fiction, magazines, and poetry while boys are more interested in comics and nonfiction. School libraries should be more supplied with this type of literature, says Keith J. Topping, a professor at the University of Dundee in Scotland says.

This devaluing of masculinity continues on into higher education, with young men enrolling at college at a much lower rate. There is also a notion that "rape culture" is running rampant on college campuses which have led to the hostility of these young men attending their respective institutions. The same young men are brought before a campus judiciary committee, who were educated by this thought of "rape culture," and are named openly while being charged with rape, despite the lack of corroboration. In some cases, due process is nonexistent and if found guilty can lead to a life-long smear of lies.

When it comes to proving this heinous crime, there are often two sides of the story, Side A and Side B. It can be possible that one or both of the sides can be deceptive toward authorities and these same authorities, in some cases, have to depend on word of mouth due to the lack of physical evidence.

This idea of "toxic masculinity" is a method used by third wave radical feminists to undermine the hardships that men and boys often experience. If a man has no masculinity, then he will not stop the man that is wicked and has too much masculinity. You can't remove the aggression, violence, and ambition from the male psyche if you tried. If harnessed properly it can lead to war and tyranny ending, building businesses and economies, and family and community support.

Men are our providers and protectors, and we need to acknowledge this day that celebrates what our husbands, fathers, brothers, and sons, go through on a daily basis and the much more difficult adversities they have to endure. So the next time when you underestimate a man's worth, remember that he has feelings of his own and that he's ready to put his life on the line to protect you and the people you care about. Happy International Men's Day.

There is a reason why Sasquatch Music Festival is held, where it is.

150 miles east of Seattle, Washington, there is the Gorge Amphitheatre. An outdoor venue that estimated to hold about 30,000 with a backdrop of the Columbia River and Cascade Ranges. That is where Sasquatch Music Festival is at.

This year, founder Adam Zacks and Live Nation did a wonderful job, accomplishing factors that every festival tries but not always succeeds: line-up, location and atmosphere.Normally, festivals can only get one of the factors, sometimes not at all--Fyre Fest anyone?

Mainstage love

2018’s Sasquatch gave us three days of diverse, variety of artists. The artists at the mainstage all displayed unique performances and were all different in its own way.

Vince Staples is a one-man act and everyone loves it. Witnessing a David Byrne show is mandatory. Bon Iver can do a lot with an Orchestra behind him.

Neko Case is timeless.

Thank you Modest Mouse for giving the fans fireworks in Day 2 because no one else did.

The National’s front man Matt Berninger, literally crowd walked the whole floor of the amphitheater.

Spoon are passionate performers and found new love of female hip-hop artists Lizzo.

Major Props

There is so much love and discovery at this Sasquatch festival, attendance gave all the love to these performers.

To everyone that face the sun and grasp what energy they had to go see Sophie Allison (Soccer Mommy), who performed at the main stage at 1p.m. deserves props. Soccer Mommy is an upcoming artists and everyone should be hearing her.

Anderson Paak closed out at the Bigfoot stage on the final day of Sasquatch, which was a smart move. Paak is an entertainer and has so much talent.

Tv on the Radio, Explosions in the Sky and Slowdive have to be included in someone’s top 5. They are all electrifying and all have particular sound.

Major Props for Pond, the Perth, Aussie band for being a little bit late because they wanted to see Vince Staples, which was confessed by lead singer Nick Allbrook. Also, Allbrook is a terrific showman.

Japanese Breakfast’s Michelle Zauner performed “Dreams,” by The Cranberries, honoring the late Dolores O’Riordan. Zauner has been performing this cover while on tour, let’s hope this is ongoing.

Discoveries

When we see festival lineups post up in your social feeds, it is noticeable that the font starts larger and starts to shrink, like a significance to the popularity factor of the artists or band. Well, attendees took their time to visit non-familiar artists and a lot of them were great to see between set times.
