The Strokes, Gorillaz, Tame Impala and more announced for Primavera Sound 2021
Primavera Sound has announced their full line-up for the 2021 edition which will take place in Barcelona from 2nd-4th June next year. An all-star line-up is capped off by The Strokes, Gorillaz and Tame Impala as some of the biggest acts being announced among the first 100 names shared.
The Barcelona-held event is set to return next year for its 20th anniversary after the 2020 edition was cancelled earlier this month due to the ongoing global pandemic. The festival had originally been postponed until late August before it was shelved completely.
All tickets that were purchased for Primavera Sound Barcelona 2020 will be valid for 2021 while remaining tickets for the 2021 festival will go on sale on June 3rd.
In a statement, the Primavera organisers said: “Whoever said that the second chances are never good did not imagine that we would experience something like what is happening this 2020.”
Adding: “With the whole world on pause due to the evolution of the global pandemic and with the live music sector holding its breath facing a summer without festivals, we can only look forward: towards 2021, specifically, the year in which we are going to recover everything that will be pending from 2020.
“So, we are especially proud to announce that the first names in the Primavera Sound Barcelona 2021 line-up feature a majority of artists who reconfirm their presence at the festival, as well as the occasional very special new addition. A first selection of artists that condenses the spirit of the festival for an edition that is as long-awaited as this 20th-anniversary edition is, and that will be updated soon with new names, both from the 2020 lineup and new surprises.
“There is no doubt: in 2021, Primavera Sound will still be Primavera Sound.”
