Barcelona’s legendary Primavera Sound Festival will make it’s first trip ever to the U.S. in 2020. The event will take place on September 19-20 at Los Angeles State Historic Park.
Primavera Sound is known as a festival for true music lovers. Fans can expect a lineup featuring the classics, icons of today, and artists of tomorrow during an incredible weekend of music “without stylistic barriers that include a public commitment to gender equality. Primavera Sound showcases the spirit of what is happening in music each year with all the names you expect and those you haven’t even dreamt of.”
“The festival is a forward-thinking exploration of music and culture, and it will offer a unique and powerful experience to connect with fans,” said Brian Smith, SVP of Los Angeles Booking at Live Nation.
Within the past year, the event has gone from an audience of 7,000 in its first edition to 220,000 at Primavera Sound. The festival recently featured over 3,500 artists and people from over 150 countries around the world.
According to the press release, the event will coincide with the twentieth anniversary of Primavera Sound that started in the Poble Espanyol of Barcelona in 2001. The Los Angeles version will accompany the Barcelona festival along with Portugal’s Oporto festival that was born in 2012 to extend the spirit of Primavera Sound.
When asked about why Los Angeles was chosen as the first city to host the festival, Gabi Ruiz, Primavera Sound’s directors said: “We have been thinking about Los Angeles for many years now, and the celebration of our 20th anniversary felt like the perfect timing for the decision of crossing overseas. Our goal is to bring the Primavera Sound spirit and vibe to cities with a similar feel: creative, [colorful] and welcoming. And with this, to give something new to the city, to show a new side and new possibilities to be built and harvested together. So it’s a dream to finally say: yes, it had to be Los Angeles.”
The lineup and ticketing information will be announced in the coming months but a limited amount of Early Bird tickets will be released on June 7th, 2019 at 9:00 am PST. Please visit www.PrimaveraSound.com for more information.
