Primavera Sound is one of the many music festivals that take place in Barcelona. This festival is well known internationally and every year fans wait with baited breath to find out the line up. Barcelona Hair Academy tells you everything you need to know about one of our favourite music festivals.
The event is held at the Parc del Fòrum, in Barcelona, and is one of the largest music festivals in Spain, with over 100,000 people attending every year. It is known for its eclectic line up, focus on independent music, and a showcase for newly established international and local acts. There are 7-8 stages and they are all outdoors, with the exception of the Auditori, which holds 3,200 people seated.
This year’s line up is, as always, epic. It includes performances from bands like The Strokes, The Replacements, Underworld, The Black Keys, Sleater-Kinney, Patti Smith and Ride. Other note worthy acts include Damien Rice, Antony and the Johnsons, James Blake, Belle and Sebastian and Julian Casablanca + The Voidz among many others.
Full festival tickets give you access to every day of the festival as well as pre-event concerts and the festival closing party, which is amazing. Also, as well as the outdoor concerts, Primavera Sound has set up other events like Primavera Club, an indoor festival that takes place every year in a different city, and PrimaveraPro, an international meeting aimed at the music industry that takes place parallel to Primavera Sound.
