WHERE: Barcelona, Spain
WHEN: from 02 to 12 June 2022
Despite being a relatively young festival, Primavera Sound Barcelona has rightfully carved out a leading role in the Olympus of international festivals. The merit can be attributed to the character and physiognomy of the Festival itself; a markedly urban event, in which integration is the common denominator.
Integration as a maximum meeting point between artists and spectators; between people even of different generations. And here, then, that art meets music. And, music becomes union and sharing. Primavera Sound Barcelona is this… and much more.
The event was born in 2001, with the aim of celebrating the end of spring in the best possible way. Until 2005, the Festival took place in the Poble Espanyol location. The response to the terms of turnout, during the first editions, was such as to force the organizers to choose a different venue. Since that time, the Festival has taken place at the Parque del Fórum in Barcelona. A place worthy of an international event, facing the sea. This year the appointment is really full-bodied, spread over 11 days.
Great international artists have performed during the previous 17 editions; Pixies, Arcade Fire, Queens of the Stone Age, The National, Nine Inch Nails, Neil Young, Sonic Youth, Portishead, Pet Shop Boys, Echo & The Bunnymen, Lou Reed, My Bloody Valentine, El-P, Pulp, Patti Smith , James Blake, Cat Power, Public Enemy and many others And from a rib of the Festival a parallel event was born in Portugal: the Nos Primavera Sound.
