Barcelona, like Amsterdam, is one of those cities where I like to come back to every year. First, because I really like this place, especially the combination of metropolitan vibe and beach town; second, because the Sonar Week and the love for electronic Music call once a year anyway.
The time this year came again, and my good friend Paulo and I were ready for our yearly escape during springtime. Well, it turned out that Sevilla is more a summer escape already in May, the temperatures reach easily around 40 degrees celsius in the afternoon! That’s why I wouldn’t reccommend to you guys to plan a superquick citytrip here, you won’t be able to do much outside between 2pm and 6pm, you totally should take some extra 2-3 days instead.
The time finally came! Since I started to book it last November, I just had one thought in my mind: “Please let it be June soon, I need to go back!”. This is what I actually call a proper Sónar week addiction. In the middle of June, like every year, Barcelona turns into a big Meeting Point for Music Lovers from all over Europe.
Every year around springtime, me and one of my best buddies Paulo look for a place to escape. First, from winter, or what is left from it, and second, to recover from our long winter nightwork, that takes a lot of energy away.
