Primavera Sound turns 20 this year, and has already made a couple of big announcements in order to celebrate the occasion, including the launch of an LA edition.
While US fans are still waiting on the first names to be released, the Spanish original in Barcelona has unveiled an impressive bill that seems to feature  everybody who’s anybody in the world of music right now.
Lana Del Rey, The National, Young Thug, Tyler, The Creator, Bad Bunny, Massive Attack, Disclosure, Caribou, Brittany Howard, Beck, Pavement, Little Simz, King Krule, Kacey Musgraves, Iggy Pop, Earl Sweatshirt, Black Midi, Amelie Lens, Einstürzende Neubauten and Tropical Fuck Storm are just a few picks from the eclectic mix that is the 2020 Primavera Sound Barcelona lineup.
The festival has added one day at Parc del Fòrum, its home in Barcelona, and will now officially take place June 3-7.
A total of 211 artists of 35 nationalities make up the diverse lineup, which is also gender-balanced, according to the promoters, who had achieved a 50/50 gender split on their 2019 already.
As Pollstar reported in July, a UK edition of the famous Spanish festival had been in the making as well, plans that got cancelled in the end.
