Primavera has been throwing annual festivals in Barcelona and Porto for years. The company announed in 2019 that their first U.S. edition would take place in L.A. in 2020, but it was cancelled due to COVID-19. The pandemic also made Primavera's 2020 and 2021 European festivals impossible.
The massive lineup for Primavera Sound Barcelona 2022, which will run from June 2–June 12, was released in May. View all the artists performing at the L.A. festival below, and pre-register for tickets on Primavera's website.
