Primavera Sound, one of Barcelona’s best, well-rounded, mastermind music festivals has presented itself with another fantastic lineup to celebrate its 15th year of concession. The festival is for true music lovers, and has grown in its reputation of such over the last few years by its great lineups and music-goers. Notable acts such as The Strokes, The Replacements, The Black Kets and Underworld headline the event. Other great acts will be at Primavera Sound, such as Damien Rice, James Blake, Alt-J, Caribou, and so many more are part of the event lasting from the 28th to the 30th of May.
Located at the huge outdoor space of Forum on the outskirts of Barcelona, the venue is perfectly situated on the edge of the Mediterranean with multiple spaces and pristine design to enable festival-goers to see all their favorite bands with great views. The most incredible feature of the space is the famous dark blue building called “Barcelona Forum” that looks like a giant sponge with huge mirrored sections. Since its construction, multiple festivals and events have been hosted at Forum, all pulling off with great success. The space is people-friendly, and extremely open. Before the entrance to the festival is a gigantic space in which people form circles, join with friends and strangers, share beers and listen to music.

What are the food options inside the venue? There is an expansive space with loads of tables dedicated to caterers offering all types of international food.
