Primavera Sound 2018


Festival season is here! The city begins to warm up its engines – and we will charge batteries – to receive a multitude of bands, singers and other international and national artists who will perform in the main stages of Barcelona.

One of the most anticipated festivals is without a doubt the Primavera Sound Festival, whose poster manages to generate, year after year, expectation and illusion like no other. Right down the dates of this 2018 edition, if you do not have them already: from May 30 to June 2, Barcelona vibrate with the music of spring in the Parc del Forum.

These mid-afternoon concerts are, in fact, the main novelty of this edition. Specifically, artists such as Ferran Palau and Ylia, David Carabén and Sonido Tupinamba (dj set) will perform in Barcelona.

On the other hand, with the initiative of Primavera Als Barris, the organization of the festival will also bring some of the emerging talents of emerging music to the civic centers and cultural spaces of the city.
