Primavera Sound Ready To Rock 2015
Just when you thought Primavera Sound couldn't possibly top last year's festival, they've gone and announced another fantastic line up for 2015's madcap music fest.
This year's headliners include huge names like The Black Keys, Patti Smith, The Strokes, and Alt-J.
You'll also be able to see the likes of Belle & Sebastian, James Blake, Jose Gonzales, Albert Hammond Jr, Julian Casablancas + The Voidz, Death From Above 1979, Spiritualized, Ride, Antony and the Johnsons, The Replacements, Simian Mobile Disco, Tyler the Creator, Chet Faker, Damien Rice, Ariel Pink, The New Pornographers, and Eels.
Of course, those are just some of our editorial favourites. There are over 100 artists playing, so there are plenty of performances to choose from at Primavera Sound. To see the video release of the 2015 line up, click here .
To get in the festival spirit, the organisers have kindly posted a Primavera Sound playlist on Spotify so you can study up on all the bands before. It can also help you avoid any awkward moments when somebody asks for your opinion on The Ghost of A Saber Tooth Tiger. ("Erm…frightening?") Yes, that is an actual group performing at Primavera this year, by the way.
You can buy tickets on their official website, which also has a list of providers you can buy the tickets from instead. Prices go up on May 5th for 3-day passes, and increase on May 3rd for single-day tickets.
Primavera Sound takes place from May 28th - 30th in Barcelona at the Parc del Forum (click link for more info on the venue plus map).
