For over a decade now Primavera Sound has been offering consistently successful musical events. This Barcelona music promoter has, since its modest beginnings, developed a strong commitment to music so that spectators of different generations can enjoy live music to the full. This is clearly reflected in the quality and innovation of its line-ups that exude coherence, eclecticism and the love of risk-taking.
Its festival Primavera Sound, which has been taking place in Barcelona since 2001, has consolidated itself as a model reference for urban festivals and is internationally considered an unmissable event. It stands out from the rest of macro musical events and is characterised by an artistic line marked by pop, rock and the most underground tendencies of dance music. Pixies, Aphex Twin, Neil Young, Sonic Youth, Portishead, Pet Shop Boys, Pavement, Echo & The Bunnymen, Lou Reed, My Bloody Valentine, El-P, Pulp, Patti Smith, James Blake, Arcade Fire, Cat Power, Public Enemy, Grinderman, Franz Ferdinand, Television, Devo, Enrique Morente, The White Stripes, LCD Soundsystem, Tindersticks, PJ Harvey, Shellac, Dinosaur Jr., New Order, Surfin’ Bichos, Fuck Buttons, Swans, Melvins, The National, Psychic TV, Spiritualized, The Cure, Bon Iver, La Buena Vida, Death Cab For Cutie, Iggy & The Stooges, De La Soul, Marianne Faithfull and Mazzy Star are just a few of the many bands who have played on the stages of the festival through the years.
