The Primavera Sound Festival will take place in the Forum in Barcelona from the 30 of May to the 3 of June 2012. In the two weeks leading up to the main attractions of the festival, which will be boosting with rock and indie music acts, free concerts will be put on in thirteen venues around the city.
The Primavera Sound Festival started off with its first edition in 2001 and has evolved in as little as a decade from a relatively small indie festival to one of Barcelona’s main music festivals. The vast majority of the open-air concerts are being held on various stages in Parc del Forum by the beach. Other gigs are being put on at Arc de Triumph, the Parc de la Ciutadella and different clubs in the city centre. This year bands such as Kings of Convenience, The Cure, Franz Ferdinand, the Afghan Wigs, The XX and Beirut can be seen live on stage. Next to these main concerts, a number of concerts are also put on for free in the two weeks leading up to the official start of the festival, as well as on the festival`s opening day and closing day. On these two days companies will host free concerts by national and international artist at the Arc de Triumph presenting acts such as Nacho Vegas and Yann Tiersen.
