Primavera Sound 2014: music and more
Barcelona is ready for a new edition of Primavera Sound, the urban festival par excellence that is going to take place from May 28th to 30th. It stands out from other large music events and is faithful to its original artistic idea, keeping the same standards and maintaining the same quality of organization of past years, without resorting to more commercial bands. Its characteristics and the wide range of bands performing have been the main reasons that have made Primavera Sound the meeting point of artists and festivalgoers from various generations.
Since its beinnings, Primavera Sound has concentrated all its efforts on uniting the latest musical proposals from the independent scene together with already well-established artists, while embrancing and style or genre in the line up, fundamentally looking for quality and essentially backing pop and rock as well as underground electronic and dance music. Yo can download the programme here.
Year after year, Primavera Sound has attracted a bigger and bigger crowd, as well as getting more and more media attention. In the first edition in 2001 closed with an attendance of 8,000 people, the 2002 edition reached 18,000 people and in 2003 it attracted more than 24,000. At the last edition (2013) there were over 170,000.
