Primavera Sound 2022: Tame Impala, The Strokes, Jamie XX, and Dua Lipa amongst over 400 bands
11 days straight of concerts after 2020 and 2021 editions of Barcelona festival canceled
After being forced to cancel the 2020 and 2021 editions due to Covid-19, Barcelona's famed Primavera Sound Festival will be back with a bang in 2022: over 400 bands and 500 concerts over two weekends in June.
The Strokes, Tame Impala, Tyler, The Creator, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Gorillaz, Pavement, Massive Attack, Jorja Smith, The National, and Beck are some of the bands that will grace fans at Parc del Fòrum with their tunes from June 2 to 4 next year.
The following weekend of June 9 to 11 will see the likes of Dua Lipa, Lorde, Megan Thee Stallion, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Antònia Font, the Mallorcan band that is back after an eight-year hiatus.
There will also be concerts at various venues throughout the Catalan capital and neighboring Sant Adrià de Besòs on weeknights as part of what is known as Primavera a la Ciutat as well as the Brunch on the Beach live DJ sets to end the festival on June 12.
"Two years without Primavera Sound could only result in a Primavera Sound like no other," the organizers claim, auguring what will be "the most important edition" in the festival's history.
The total attendance over the two weeks is expected to exceed 400,000 music lovers from home and abroad.
Fans who already have tickets either from the 2020 or 2021 festivals will be given the choice of which weekend they want to attend, or else they can upgrade their ticket to a double weekend one.
Tickets — €245 for a weekend pass or €425 for both — will go on sale on June 1.
