Together with Firestone, I got to experience Primavera Sound in Barcelona for the very first time. Primavera Sound is a music festival that takes place from the end of may to the beginning of June at Parc del Fòrum Barcelona, a huge areal right by the water and still close to the City. Founded in 1900 Firestone Tire and Rubber Company is an international company producing and selling tires. But what does such a company have to do with a music festival you might ask?
Almost 90 years ago the founder, Mr. Firestone, launched a radio programme named ‘the voice of firestone’. This one of a kind radio show, back then, which was super popular, offered new and established artists an audience. One day the radio show was not postponed, so therefore Firestone Europe launched the Firestone Music Tour, which is hitting 7 major Festivals across Europe this summer. The first one was Primavera Sound, with more to follow until September.
So here now an insight into what I did during my 1 night at Primavera Sound Festival 2017 in Barcelona with Firestone. I didn’t life the full Festival-Life but had a great time with lovely people with lots of memories. And isn’t this what festivals are all about anyways?
At Coca-Cola we took a nice photo to remember this evening, at cabify I won at Beer Pong and at the Firestone stand I amused myself about the karaoke skills of the others. Another highlight to mention was Flatstock, where international artists showcased their own band posters and other merchandise. I especially liked xxx by an artist from Vienna, Austria.
