Primavera Sound has just revealed the full line up of its fourteenth edition, distributed from Monday 26th May to Sunday 1st June, through their film “Line-Up”, that has just been released in cinemas and on Internet, having already announced the presence of the Canadian band Arcade Fire, Neutral Milk Hotel’s stage comeback and Frank Black’s band, Pixies. The latter are now joined by an extensive list of artists who will play on the multiple stages of the Parc del Fòrum from 29th to 31st May. Among all of these newly confirmed names Trent Reznor’s band Nine Inch Nails, the American band The National, the mythical desert rock formation Queens of the Stone Age, Justin Vernon’s new project (with Bon Iver) Volcano Choir, the Californian rapper Kendrick Lamar and the legendary and influential Brazilian singer songwriter Caetano Veloso really stand out.
The first festival shows for newly reformed British band Slowdive, house from the British band Disclosure, Television from New York playing their greatest album “Marquee Moon”, math-pop from the powerful Foals, the presentation of the Scottish band Mogwai’s new album, electro pop from the highly successful Metronomy and Darkside, Nicolas Jaar’s new project, all join the line up of the Barcelona event.
A large number of the participants at this edition will be visiting Spain for the first time. This is the case for the hidden gem of feminine folk Linda Perhacs, The Julie Ruin (new band of Kathleen Hanna, former Bikini Kill member), the explosive cult band Chrome, the loud British band Loop and Body/Head, Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon’s new project.
