“This Is Love. The Primavera Sound 2024 lineup is unveiled and festival’s love is spreading out in all directions. Can’t you feel it?” festival organisers shared in a press release. “Love for its own history, reflected in the retro graphic image that accompanies the release, successor to the flyer on which the magic words were first conjured up: Primavera Sound.”
“Zoom in, zoom out. But haven’t we agreed that this lineup is a gift? Well, let’s unwrap it and discover that, in essence, what this is all about is the love of music.”

Last year’s instalment saw performances from Blur, Kendrick Lamar and Rosalía, which NME hailed as the “always excellently-curated Barcelona festival” which “returned to form”.
It added: “A festival that entreats its punters to care about the future looks to be gradually entering a new, bright and reinvigorated era of its own.”
Meanwhile, Primavera Sound will not be returning to Madrid next year. While the Spanish festival has taken place in Barcelona since 2001, 2023 was the first year that it became a dual-site event, with the same line-up playing both locations.
“Although both the city of Madrid and the whole region welcomed us with open arms, with a warmth that was mirrored in the institutions, the cultural agents and of course the audience, the external difficulties that the festival had to face in the final stretch of the pre-production gave rise to one of the most complicated events that Primavera Sound has ever had to face,” said Almudena Heredero, director of Primavera Sound Madrid, in a press release.
However, Primavera Sound will debut in Peru this year, marking the festival’s latest expansion.
