Primavera 2018: Arctic Monkeys, Björk and The National announced


Arctic Monkeys, Björk, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, The National, Lorde, Migos, A$AP Rocky and Jane Birkin head the spectacular lineup of the eighteenth edition of Barcelona’s Primavera Festival.

Arctic Monkeys’ comeback tour, after four years without performing live, leads the delegation, Björk will perform her resplendent Utopia in her first visit to the festival and Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds will finally bring the cathartic Skeleton Tree to the stage in what promises to be a historic concert.

All the aforementioned are just only the highlights of a monster list which consecrates The National and The War On Drugs, A$AP Rocky and Migos as the epitome of today’s hip hop and trap worldwide scene, and Lorde as the new 21st century pop star. As a culmination, the lineup also provides the opportunity to see a legendary artist such as Jane Birkin singing songs from her homage record to Serge Gainsbourg accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra.

Taking over Spain from the 28th May to 2nd June, Primavera Sound rolls around again in spectacular fashion.
