American indie rockers Pavement are the first act revealed for Primavera Sound Barcelona and Porto. This will be their only two worldwide shows in 2020.

Last weekend, festival-goers could once again have a blast at Primavera Sound Barcelona. They had a chance to enjoy a wonderful lineup and much more than just music.

Several minutes before the Spanish superstar Rosalìa took the stage, all screens went dark. Everyone could hear some notes from Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain

Therefore, Pavement will be back! But just for Primavera Sound Barcelona and NOS Primavera Sound Porto, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the festival. Check out the announcement below :


Pavement are an iconic indie rock band from Stockton, California, formed in 1989. Led by Stephen Malkmus, they recorded five albums with rare creativity and passion. Nevertheless, they decided to take a break in 1999 in order to move on to other projects. Among the crazy stuff they released, listen to their famous song “Cut Your Hair” from their album Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain (1994).
