Primavera 2011 takes shape

After this year's tenth anniversary, i was slightly worried that 2011's edition of the Primavera Sound festival would be a bit anti-climactic. Fat chance! This is the best music festival in the world we're talking about. Along with the reformed Pulp, the following names have been announced for the line-up, with much more to come:

Mercury Rev (playing Deserter's Songs, in the Auditorium)
Animal Collective
John Cale and Band (playing Paris 1919)
Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Belle & Sebastian
The National
Blank Dogs
Comet Gain
Dan Melchior und Das Menace
Fleet Foxes
Half Japanese
Papas Fritas
Sonny & The Sunsets
The Fiery Furnaces
The Flaming Lips
Triángulo De Amor Bizarro

The festival takes place from May 25th to 28th, more details here:

Meanwhile, Primavera TV has uploaded the entire headline set from Pavement from this year. To be honest, i don't think this captures the sheer joy of being there - the ecstatic crowd reaction is mixed far, far too low - but check it out, it's been helpful for filling in those alcohol-induced memory gaps:
