      the coolest international street style from primavera sound 2017, straight up

      A radiant blue sky, good music, and the ocean shoreline: Primavera Sound is one of the world’s best musical events, and we couldn’t have asked for a better stage to celebrate. We decided to take a stroll through the Forum over the festival's three-day tenure to get to know some of the attendees who travelled from across the world to see it in person.
