It’s over a year out but that doesn’t mean we can’t gawk over this new Primavera Sound lineup. The Barcelona-held event is set to return next year for its 20th anniversary after the 2020 edition was cancelled earlier this month due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The majority of the lineup remains the same with some huge additions like Autechre, Charli XCX, FKA Twigs, Gorillaz, Idles and Tame Impala joining the bill. Lana Del Ray, Massive Attack and Kacey Musgraves are no longer going to be performing but for all the additions this seems like more than a fair tradeoff
All 2020 ticket holders are able to keep their ticket [or request a refund] plus credit for food and drinks plus a 15% discount for a friend along with a free shirt.
In a statement, the Primavera organisers said: “Whoever said that the second chances are never good did not imagine that we would experience something like what is happening this 2020. With the whole world on pause due to the evolution of the global pandemic and with the live music sector holding its breath facing a summer without festivals, we can only look forward: towards 2021, specifically, the year in which we are going to recover everything that will be pending from 2020.
“So, we are especially proud to announce that the first names in the Primavera Sound Barcelona 2021 line-up feature a majority of artists who reconfirm their presence at the festival, as well as the occasional very special new addition. A first selection of artists that condenses the spirit of the festival for an edition that is as long awaited as this 20th anniversary edition is, and that will be updated soon with new names, both from the 2020 lineup and new surprises.
