Primavera Sound has established itself as one of the best music festivals in the world. Set in Barcelona, Spain, it holds several characteristics that make thousands of people to attend every year.

First off, it's in Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia and second largest city in Spain. The festival is in Parc del Forum, which is on the Spanish coast and Barcelona has beautiful weather to go with it (72 F or 22 C in average).

Lastly, Primavera Sound is known for its variety of music artists they put in for a four-day lineup. A catalogue of various sounds that everyone can enjoy, including the multiple locations of various acts in the city as well like the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona.

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.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Raven Baxter Was Our Favorite Teen Fashion Icon And We're Still Recreating Her Best Looks, Here

We take a look at Disney's most fashion-forward show to recreate some iconic looks.

Disney Plus

I grew up in the early 2000s. And, like any child at the time, I was hooked on Disney Channel shows. My favorite was and is "That's So Raven."

Raven is a teenage psychic navigating life in hopes of not revealing her powers. Only her family and close friends know she has them. Her powers oftentimes get her in trouble, which is where the comedy comes in. But, they also teach her and her friends sentimental life lessons.

Sobriety is so underrated, even when it comes to healthcare. The instant gratification of a substance or drink isn't exactly as gratifying as some people may think. For those of you who've never been hungover, consider yourself lucky — a hangover is biologically horrifying. A hangover is not instant gratification, so who are we kidding when people say "it just feels good." Being healthy actually feels good and won't hurt you or your bank account in the morning. The best way to be healthy is to choose sobriety.

Unauthorized Plastic Surgery Is Totally Unethical, And Happening WAY More Often Than We Know ‬

Plastic surgery for cosmetic enhancements has you looking more botched than beautiful and it’s painful to see.

Coming from someone who could afford numerous cosmetic enhancing procedures I would never in a million years cut up my face or my body. I'm pretty emphatic and when I watch these brainwashed victims with bandages and chronic inflammation (swollen lips) I literally feel their pain.

I've never been big on casual wear or athleisure. Most people who know me have never seen me in sweats. But, I do have those two or three pairs of sweats I can't resist climbing into the second I get home, the newest addition of which is the extra cozy Odyssey crewneck sweatshirt I got in an XL size to feel as close to being wrapped in a blanket at all times as possible.

In the past several months, I've started to expand my horizons, considering the ways in which I can bring my small wardrobe of comfortable bedroom clothing into the public. I've experimented with topping leggings and a sports bra with a denim jacket to the park, and an oversized sweatshirt worn as a dress, cinched at the waist with a belt when I'm out wearing leggings.

How To Dress Like Your Favorite 'Insecure' Characters — Without Spending $2,000

We take a look at the fashion of Insecure season 4, and how you can create these looks yourself.

HBO

Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black 20-something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life. Issa, Molly, Kelli, and Tiffany are living their best lives in California while dealing with the twists and turns that come with that.

From life to relationships to careers, this show truly captures everything that runs through my mind on a daily basis. The show has a sense of realness and a strong frankness that makes you gravitate toward the characters and root for their success.

The waiter briskly moves towards us and stops just a foot away table, balancing the black serving tray stacked high with the ceramic plates that make-up our dinner. From memorization, he beings gently, but purposely, sliding everyone's orders in front of them and within seconds I'm am starring my meal.
