WHERE: Barcelona, Spain
WHEN: from 29 May to 04 June 2023
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.
The great novelty of the Primavera Sound 2023 edition will be the so-called “mirror festival” which will take place in Madrid. A program that will be reproduced in a completely identical way from 07 to 11 June in the Spanish capital, in Arganda del Rey.
