Primavera Sound Barcelona 2018

As every year, the headquarters of the Primavera Sound is the Parc del Forum in Barcelona and this year the date chosen is from May 30 to June 3. It is one of the most relevant on the national scene with all kinds of amenities: camping areas or a wide range of food and drink inside the premises.

These are the headliners that will meet this 2018: Belle and Sebastian, Spiritualized, Björk, Nick Cave, The War on Drugs, Vince Staples, Chvrches, Fever Ray, Floating Points, The National, Migos, Tyler: the creator, Haim, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Father John Misty, Ark, Mogwai, Arctic Monkeys, Lorde, Rocky Asap, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, Jane Birkin, The Blaze.

As for the distribution by days: Wednesday is the day of Belle and Sebastian, Thursday the day of BJörk and Nick Cave, on Friday the protagonists are The National and Saturday will be the expected concert of Arctic Monkeys.

To this programming are added free concerts organized openly to the public to complete the festival experience. As of June 3, more than 40 performances will take place in different venues: Nothing Places, Javi Bayo, Bentley Alondra, Ferran Palau, Ylia, David Carabén, Tupinamba Sound, Medal, Malachi Estéreo, Cor Blanc, One Path, Mc Buseta, Nu Drama, Pei Picao, Doll, Pivot, Goiko, Belle and Sebastian, Wolf Parade, Javiera Menara, Starcrawler.

One of the biggest challenges for attendees is being able to square the schedules to see as many concerts as possible without missing their favorite groups.

Previously it has been partially broadcast live through the Live Stream Primavera Sound although it is not confirmed if in 2018 it will be repeated.

On the other hand, the festival has a solid environmental commitment based on the awareness of the attendees regarding the collection of waste, mobility, the use of sustainable materials and a long etc.

The last novelty of the last edition was Primavera Bits, a space reserved for electronic music, with its own poster with 62 performances and another advantage to the festival: 5,000 meters of additional space in which another 12,000 people have fit. These performances were distributed on the stages: Bacardí Live and Desperados Club.
