Primavera Sound is another great festival held in Barcelona, usually earlier than the often mentioned Sonar Festival. Though it isn’t often mentioned in these pages, as the music sits a little more in the alternative and indie areas of the music spectrum, Primavera Sound could be of interest to some of you out there this year.
Acts of interest for those who love Release include Arca, Björk, Chvrches and Fever Ray to begin with. On top of this you can find both Four Tet and Jon Hopkins performing live, as well as Oneohtrix Point Never and Thundercat, to name but a few.
Spanning the dates 28 May to 3 June, Primavera Sound may well be worth checking out. More details and tickets are available via the website www.primaverasound.com.
