Primavera Sound Festival

Primavera is one of Spain's biggest music festivals and sees some of the world's principal pop and rock stars grace the summer stages for a fiesta of fun and music in the glorious sunshine. The festival now attracts more than 100,000 people. The festival usually has about eight stages and the line-up includes multiple genres, with pop, rock, dance, electronic, indie, hip hop, jazz and folk represented. Past performers include international stars like Neil Young, Pixies, Arcade Fire, The White Stripes, Franz Ferdinand, Death Cab for Cutie, The Cure, Bon Iver, Pet Shop Boys, Iggy & the Stooges and many more. The event is usually held within Parc del Forum leisure park in the Sant Marti district; unlike many European music festivals there are no camping facilities on-site and accommodation must be organised. Primavera also organises smaller festivals and concerts in Spain, and has recently started a new festival in Portugal - check the official website listed below for details on ticket prices and the full programme. The full festival ticket allows entrance to all festival events including pre-event concerts and a festival closing party, but day tickets are also available once the full line-up has been decided.
