Bye Bye Coachella. The 2016 Primavera Sound lineup is massive not just in size but in sheer musicianship and diversity!
The Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona just announced one of the best and most diverse lineups we’ve seen this year, featuring English rockers, Radiohead, NYC Electronic Rock act LCD Soundsystem and Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Ros as headliners. They are joined by artists like Tame Impala, Animal Collective, Action Bronson, Explosions In The Sky, Vince Staples and so many more. Although the Coachella features 164 artists, Primavera’s 135 strong lineup beats it with sheer musicianship and diversity. Slated to be held from June 1-5, this is definitely a festival to look out for if you’re searching for quality over quantity (though their lineup is in no way small).
The festival is held within the Parc del Fòrum leisure sitea and is one of the largest music festivals in Spain, with an attendance rate of more than 100,000 over the course of the event in 2010. As demonstrated in this year’s lineup, the festival is noted for its eclectic lineup, focus on independent music, and as a showcase for newly established international and domestic acts. The range of musical genres include alternative, indie, electronic, pop, hip hop, dance, folk, jazz, metal, and experimental music so there is literally something for everyone.
