Primavera Sound : stage breakdowns

The Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona is now less than a month away, and the breakdown of what's going down throughout the long weekend is becoming clearer. A daily timetable for the festival, showing what stage each act will be playing, is available here:

It's notable that there's some excellent bands playing in the Parc Joan Miro, a separate venue acessible to ticket-holders, on Saturday and Sunday - including A Sunny Day in Glasgow, Ganglians and Thee Oh Sees. For anyone who arrives in Barcelona early, there's also a Wichita Records showcase in the Apolo venue on Wednesday night featuring Los Campesinos, Peggy Sue and First Aid Kit.

As well as that, an extremely provisional timetable is doing the rounds:

While times have yet to be confirmed, the prospect of a back-to-back Broken Social Scene-Pavement-Fuck Buttons triple bill on the first night is almost too awesome to comprehend.

Good shouts as well in giving Owen Pallett and Low slots in the Auditorium.

Is anyone getting excited yet?


  1. Seriously cannot wait for this. My first year going. Daniel, what's the story with the Auditorium gigs? Do I need to get some special ticket to get into it or am I picking things up wrong?

  2. for some of the auditorium gigs you need a ticket. last year what happened was there were these machines where you inserted money and got tickets for drink at the bar. there was also an option on the machines to get tickets for the auditorium. i think they cost 3 or 4 euro. maybe less. they sell them the day of the set.

  3. Ok, thanks for clearing that up. Can't wait to see Pavement after reading your review of the Dublin gig!
