The Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona, Spain is being held this weekend, with artists like Solange, FKA twigs, Yaeji and more performing. The festival is one of the most revered in the world, and thus far has only branched out to Portugal for additional events. But next year, Primavera will make its official US debut in a city where it’s always primavera (“spring” in Spanish): Los Angeles.
Primavera Sound Los Angeles will debut at the Los Angeles State Historic Park on September 19-20, 2020. Primavera partners with Live Nation to produce the US event, taking place at the old site of the defunct FYF Fest. 2020 marks the 20th anniversary of Primavera Sound, and what better way to celebrate than to come to one of the biggest musical capitals of the world?
Lineup and ticket details will be revealed at a later date. For those who can’t wait, they can buy limited early bird tickets on June 7 at 9 a.m. PST. It’ll be interesting to see how the lineup shakes out. Despite the festival’s huge appeal, its lineup caters more to the niche side of music than the mainstream. Artists like J Balvin and Future may have headlined before, but the undercard is full of alternative sounds of pop, hip-hop, electronic music and more.
Primavera Sound Los Angeles may be more than a year away, but we cannot contain our excitement. Tune in to Your EDM for more updates as they come out.
