In May 2017, music fans will descend on Barcelona for the five-day Primavera Sound festival.
Organizers at the Spanish festival have announced that Frank Ocean, Arcade Fire and Bon Iver are among the headliners, bringing R&B, rock and folk to the table. The eclectic lineup also includes glam icons (Grace Jones), soul trendsetters (Solange) and electronic mainstays (The xx, Aphex Twin). Van Morrison is on the list. Oh, and Slayer will bring the metal.
In addition to those headliners, Primavera sound will feature about 200 other artists of various genres and backgrounds. A full lineup is available below, and it’s a lot. Some stars on the list include Miguel, Descendents, Flying Lotus and more.
The central days of the event will be Wednesday, May 31 through Sunday, June 4 at the show’s two main sites.
It’s hard to imagine this much musical diversity in one place, but Primavera Sound—with a reputation for eclecticism—pulls it off again. More info available at the festival’s official site.
