Primavera Sound Barcelona

The New Normal, the slogan or the idea on which the 2019 edition of Primavera Sound floats, flows, rises, falls and rotates. From May 30 to June 1, 2019, the Parc del Fòrum de Barcelona will be the protagonist of an exceptional edition. A turning point. The edition in which everything changes. The parity between men and women, the stylistic eclecticism and the drive, almost an obsession, for the risk to connect with the new times and the new public. And it is not new, it was intuited in the latest editions of Primavera Sound, but this year is final. The new normal. There are 226 names of which more than 50% are women, diversity of musical genres (from extreme metal to reggaeton through pop, hip hop, jazz, electronic experimentation, trap and canonical indie rock), and the more than obvious commitment to renewal.
