Barcelona’s famed Primavera Sound Festival is going Stateside and has unveiled their plans to create a festival in Los Angeles.
The new event, which will be held at the Los Angeles State Historic Park, will take place September 19-20 and will be co-produced by Live Nation alongside the festival’s directors.
“We have been thinking about Los Angeles for many years now, and the celebration of our 20th anniversary felt like the perfect timing for the decision of crossing overseas,” said co-director Gabi Ruiz in a press release.
“Our goal is to bring the Primavera Sound spirit and vibe to cities with a similar feel: creative, colourful and welcoming. And with this, to give something new to the city, to show a new side and new possibilities to be built and harvested together. So it’s a dream to finally say: yes, it had to be Los Angeles.”
Primavera Sound Los Angeles has promised “a lineup featuring the classics, icons of today, and artists of tomorrow during an incredible weekend of music without stylistic barriers that includes a public commitment to gender equality.”
Early bird tickets for Primavera Sound Los Angeles go on sale June 7, 2019.
