Hi good people!
Can you imagine watching some of the best rock, pop, electro and independent bands under the stars on a warm spring evening with a sea breeze and 150,000 like-minded music enthusiasts…? Idealistic isn’t it.
From the 22nd to the 25th of May, you will be able to do just that. Once again, the long anticipated Primavera Sound music festival will land in the Parc del Fòrum (L4, yellow line), bringing with it world famous acts such as Blur, The Vaccines and Peace (not so famous, but they’re a favourite of mine so clearly deserve a plug).
For the 12th year running, the organisers of Primavera have managed to present us with a more than impressive line-up, from Catalan pop group Manel, to the smooth British folk sounds of Daughter, with a bit of hip hop thrown in from the Wu-Tang Clan. I think it’s fair to say there is something for everybody!
All of this in the name of celebrating the arrival of spring!
Obviously, it all comes at a price… but if you aren’t willing to spend 80€ on a day ticket I can assure you that as every year, there will be a number of free concerts and gigs around the city for those whose ears can appreciate good music, but whose bank balances cannot. From the 24th April up until the 18th May, 22 bands will be playing in bars around Barcelona as a gentle warm-up for this unforgettable weekend - keep an eye out on flyer boards and online for more details!
Sadly, the end of the weekend is unavoidable but you can blow away those post-Primavera blues by buying yourself a ticket to Barcelona’s second music festival of the year taking place in June – Sónar!
