Food & Drink:

Including a squid baguette that will leave an ever lasting impression on you. This year they are adding the Primmmavera event, which is a food festival inside the music festival.

Train timetables:

if you miss the last train at Midnight (or 2am if it’s Friday/Saturday), and you need it to get back to your accommodation, you may as well stay until the trains start again at 5am. Fortunately, at that point the music will still be playing, so there’ll be plenty of great ways to pass the time. In any event, make a plan to get home every night as it is not easy to get a taxi or uber.
