After spending a few days exploring the city before the second weekend starting June 9, I took a 12-minute metro ride from my hotel in Clot to the Parc del Fòrum site located in Sant Adrià de Besòs .

I arrived at the festival site on Thursday, where they scanned the QR code on my ticket, which attendees were asked to register in an app called AccessTicket. I was then given my bracelet which allowed me to come and go.

Many of the headliners were located on the Estrella Damm or Pull & Bear stages, which were quite a distance from the entrance site and other stages.

The seaside setting of the Parc del Fòrum gave the event an undeniably atmospheric atmosphere.

According to the drinks menu, a can of water costs 2 euros, or $2.10, a Coca-Cola costs 3 euros, or $3.15, and an Estrella Damm beer costs 4.50 euros, or $4.70. $, which seems reasonable for a festival. Being absentee, I managed to keep my drink order cheap.
