Primavera was first held in 2001. Ever since the early stages, the festival has succeeded in bringing together in its lineup the representatives of many different genres like pop, dance, rock, R&B and also the latest independent music scene. Primavera Sound is also being held in Porto, Portugal, a week later than the Barcelona edition.
Primavera Sound is considered to be one of the biggest festivals for the alternative scene. Portishead, Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, Kendrick Lamar, Neil Young and Patti Smith are only a few names that have performed in previous years. In addition to the great lineup, Barcelona is one of the most beautiful cities around the world, which needs to be explored.
