The Strokes have been unveiled as the first band announced to perform at the 2015 edition of Primavera Sound.
It may feel for many likes the festival season has only just come to a close, but Primavera is one of the first on the European calendar, taking place May 28th – 30th.
Over the last thirteen years, the festival has built up a reputation for putting together one of the most well thought out lineups around, with huge arena acts mixed in with cult favourites and up and coming debutantes.
The Strokes would probably have to be considered as the first of those profiles, but the festival chose to reveal the announcement in typically unorthodox fashion.
A billboard that was erected close to the site – initially giving no indication of the lineup – but as darkness fell, UV lights began to glow, displaying the New York rockers’ iconic logo.
The full festival ticket for Primavera Sound 2015 in Barcelona is on sale at a price of €145 until November 14th and €160 thereafter.
