Thurs 28th May: Primavera Day 1

Whilst London is tentatively sizing up the summer, the sun is shining out over Mont Montjuic in Barcelona for Primavera. Having lost an assistant to My Bloody Valentine, I wanted to know what was going on at this 3 day, 6 stage music festival!? The line-up looks scarily sizeable, so if I just stick to "S" for Spain ...........some of the acts are Spiritualized, Saint Etienne, Simian Mobile Disco, Squarepusher, Sunn o))) AND Sonic Youth. In addition to these distractions, its located next to a white sand beach with free option to leave and return. Apparently things get going at 7pm and carry on till 7am when the transport links start running again. I hope Camille comes back!

Fingers crossed, we have an inside peak at the proceedings courtesy of music/portrait photographer Dan Wilton who has also split from the smog in search of Europe's finest sound systems. For the first day of his"Uncle Travelling Mack" style contributor status, we have some choice cuts (!) of phone-pic action. Tune in tomorrow to see more direct from the Catalan serving of cutting edge and classical...
