The two-venue and two-weekend Spanish festival Primavera Sound just revealed its super-stacked multi-genre lineup for 2023.
Primavera Sound is held over two weekends with one in Barcelona and one in Madrid. The Parc del Fòrum will host from June 1- 3 and the Ciudad del Rock in Arganda del Rey from June 8-10. The two cities will mirror each other in a plural and gender-balanced line-up of more than 200 artists under the tagline, “wherever, however, I’ll be your mirror.”
This year’s 21st edition is full of historic names like Depeche Mode, Pep Shop Boys, Rosalía, and Kendrick Lamar. They will be joined by dance music favorites Calvin Harris, Diplo, Ben Böhmer, Channel Tres, and CamelPhat, although Purple Disco Machine will only perform the first weekend.
Many fans were quick to point out that Four Tet, Skrillex, and Fred again.. will all be performing on the same day, leading many to speculate they could play their highly anticipated ID “Rumble” together.
After returning post-COVID in 2022, Primavera Sound also introduced a new festival in Los Angeles with names like Bicep (live), Eris Drew B2B Octo Octa, Helena Hauff, and Mitski.
All tickets for Primavera Sound Barcelona 2023 and Primavera Sound Madrid 2023 will go on sale on Thursday, December 1 noon CET.
