‘Primavera Sound’ 2020 has been cancelled

This year’s edition of ‘Primavera Sound’ – which was planned for June 3 – 7 in Barcelona, Spain – has been officially cancelled. The gathering will return June 2 – 6, 2021.

Organizers write:

Today, Primavera Sound announces the most difficult decision in its history: finally we will not be able to celebrate our 20th anniversary during 2020. In the face of the evolution of the Covid-19 health crisis, we find ourselves obliged to postpone the next edition of Primavera Sound Barcelona, for reasons of force majeure, until next year: from 2nd to 6th June 2021.

We are devastated and are terribly sorry for the inconvenience caused, but the health and well-being of our festivalgoers and of all the people involved in the festival has always been and is still our absolute priority. We cannot thank you enough for your patience, love and understanding in this uncertain scenario. We will never forget this.

All tickets that have been bought will be valid for Primavera Sound Barcelona 2021, and will include special benefits for those who decide to keep them. As well as this option, it will also be possible to request a refund for purchased tickets from next Wednesday, June 3rd.

On that same day we will announce the first artists for Primavera Sound Barcelona 2021, a line up that will still celebrate the 20th anniversary of the festival embracing the #bestfestivalforever philosophy. We are counting on you to make this happen.

Until then, please take good care of yourselves and follow the advice of the authorities at all times. The festival team continues to work intensively in order to be able, in 2021, to celebrate something more than just Primavera Sound’s 20th anniversary: meeting and dancing together again.

Band’s that were scheduled to appear at the 2020 edition of the fest include Massive Attack, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Bauhaus, The Strokes, Iggy Pop, Napalm Death, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Dinosaur Jr., and others.
