The sunny days are back as Spring begins to taste like Summer in Barcelona. Time to get ready for the Summer festival season, starting with Primavera Sound, the leading event (along with the Sonar Festival). This year’s edition includes more than 70 bands featuring big names like The Cure, Franz Ferdinand, Wilco, Justice and The Rapture (Björk cancelled a few days ago) and a perfect selection of leading indie artists like Beach House, Atlas Sound, Beirut, Grimes, The Walkmen, The XX, M83 to name a few.

Primavera Sound Festival stands as the leading event of the season taking place in a 73,800 square meter area with eight stages and side activities like PrimaveraPro, a platform to design new strategies for the music industry and offering free concerts in alternative spaces around Barcelona. For those away from the Mediterranean sea, Primavera will offer a live streaming of the festival through YouTube. So stay tuned.
