5 reasons why we’re excited for Primavera Sound 2019

Erykah Badu, Stereolab, Robyn, Cardi B, and CARLY RAE JEPSEN. Need we say more.

December 6, 2018

Since its 2001 inception, Primavera Sound’s annual Barcelona music festival has made a commitment to boasting lineups that represent a wide range of styles, genres, and artists. The 2019 festival’s headlining acts are just further proof of Primavera’s commitment to sonic comprehensiveness, featuring Solange, Cardi B, Erykah Badu, Future, Janelle Monáe, Tame Impala, J Balvin, Rosalía, and Nas. One could almost say that Primavera’s 2019 lineup is historically good, and they’d be right – it’s one of the first major music festivals with a bill of over 50% women-identifying artists.

In addition to the tasty headliners above, other artists that are part of what Primavera Sound are calling “the new normal” include a reunited Stereolab, Charli XCX, FKA Twigs, Mac Demarco, James Blake, Danny Brown, Robyn, Interpol, Carly Rae Jepsen, Snail Mail, Kali Uchis, Deerhunter, Clairo, and many more.

The full line-up of the festival – which runs from May 30th to June 1st at Barcelona’s Parc del Forum – can be found here. Tickets for this year’s festival can currently be purchased for 180 Euro until January 7th.
