Primavera Sound organisers will follow a growing tradition by launching their own ‘Weekender’ event in Benidorm later this year.

You’ll find Belle & Sebastian, Primal Scream, Idles and Charly Bliss among others at the inaugural festival when it takes place in Benidorm at the Magic Robin Hood Camp between November 8th-9th. “Fans, artists and friends all together in one party celebrating Primavera Sound’s spirit,” is how it’s described on social media.

This becomes part of Idles’ lengthy live work behind their era-defining second studio album Joy As An Act Of Resistance, a tour which Live4ever caught in Brooklyn earlier this month. “And so Brooklyn laps up Idles’ bite against the fire-stoking British tabloid press on Rottweiler as if The Sun is splashed all over their breakfast news every morning, to the eternal tug-of-war over the NHS on Divide And Conquer as if Obama Care hadn’t caused enough turmoil of its own,” our review reads.

“To songs written for these people, and this time. Songs held together by Jon Beavis, who’s (not so) quietly becoming one of the best rock drummers in the business. The band are tight from so much time on the road; an air of anarchy remains, but it’s slightly more organised chaos these days.”
