The announcement of the Primavera Sound line up is always an event. For its 22nd, Primavera takes a step back and returns to the format that has made it famous over the past two decades: a single weekend in Barcelona from 30 May to 1 June at the Parc del Fòrum with the free matchday on Wednesday 29 May – where Phoenix will perform and the closing party – the Brunch Electronik – which will close the festival on June 2nd.
But let’s get to the announced names in which, as usual, pop, alternative rock, metal and electronica mix. As headliners we will therefore find Lana del Rey and SZA, followed by Pulp, Vampire Weekend, Mitski, Charli XCX, Justice, PJ Harvey, The National, FKA twigs, Bikini Kill, Deftones and Troye Sivan. And then again American Football, Arca, La Zowi, AG Cook, BADBADNOTGOOD, Hannah Diamond, Nala Sinephro and Peggy Gou.
Also added to the list are Clipse, Mica Levi, Freddie Gibs & Madlib, Beth Gibbons and William Basinski. Of course there will be Shellac, and also Yo La Tengo, Arab Strap, Romy, Disclosure, Lemon Twigs and a hundred other artists. Liberato will represent Italy.
From today to 23 November, a registration form for the fan sale will be available on the Primavera Sound website which will be activated on 23 November on Dice: the general ticket for the entire festival will cost €265 (plus booking fee) and the ticket VIP for the entire festival will cost €495 (plus booking fee) until tickets are sold out. General ticket sales will open on November 24 at 11am.
