Primavera Sound announces Los Angeles festival for 2020
They teased it yesterday, and now it's official: Primavera Sound festival is launching a Los Angeles edition in 2010, happening September 19 & 20 at L.A. State Historic Park. "We have been thinking about Los Angeles for many years now, and the celebration of our 20th anniversary felt like the perfect timing for the decision of crossing overseas,” co-director Gabi Ruiz said the a press release. “Our goal is to bring the Primavera Sound spirit and vibe to cities with a similar feel: creative, colourful and welcoming. And with this, to give something new to the city, to show a new side and new possibilities to be built and harvested together. So it’s a dream to finally say: yes, it had to be Los Angeles." They're promising a lineup a "featuring the classics, icons of today, and artists of tomorrow during an incredible weekend of music without stylistic barriers that includes a public commitment to gender equality."
Early Bird Tickets for Primavera Sound L.A. go on sale June 7. They've also hinted they'll be coming to London, but no official word yet.
Meanwhile Primavera Sound Barcelona is underway as we speak, with Saturday performances of Solange, Rosalia, Stereolab, Jarvis Cocker, Primal Scream, Roisin Murphy, Built to Spill and more.
