More acts have been confirmed for this year’s Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona.
The major addition is Public Enemy, who will reprise their ATP Don’t Look Back show and play It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back in its entirety. Rufus Wainwright, ex-Shangri La Mary Weiss and Cat Power also perform, while the prospect of seeing el Guincho, HEALTH and No Age** in the Iberian sunshine is getting Drowned in Sound’s collective stomach rushing.
Sebadoh, Tindersticks, Dinosaur Jr, Apparat Band, Atlas Sound, Bill Callahan, Bob Mould, The Cribs, Digital Mystikz…. and that’s just up to the ‘d’s. Can it just be the 29th of May now, please? The Parc del Forum is the place to be from then ‘til the 31st.
