Barcelona's Primavera Sound Announces 2020 LA Fest
Barcelona's Primavera Sound music festival has much to look forward to in 2020. One of Europe's most popular festivals, the fest has brought together rock, pop and underground sounds to the Spanish city since 2001. Now, the fest, which also runs NOS Primavera Sound in Portugal, has announced it is bringing a new version of the music event to Los Angeles.
Primavera Sound Los Angeles will take place at L.A. State Historic Park just outside of downtown L.A. on Sept. 19–20 in 2020. The announcement was made Sat., June 1, the last day of the 2019 Barcelona edition, which featured performances from Miley Cyrus, Rosalía, J Balvin, Jarvis Cocker and more.
"Now we see and are clearly seen," the fest tweeted on Saturday. "@Primavera_Sound is going global and is coming to L.A. in 2020. Welcome: @Primavera_LA_"
The fest promises to bring the sound and vibe Primavera has come to be known for to the City of Angels. "Faithful to the philosophy of the event, the new festival will present a unique Primavera Sound brand lineup in urban surroundings," the fest said in a statement on its website.
Late last year, Primavera Sound shared a new tagline and commitment to equality: "The New Normal," or a 50/50 gender split among performers, which was reflected in their diverse 2019 lineup.
The fest also announced the festival dates in Barcelona and Porto will be June 4–6 and June 11–13, respectively. No lineups for their 2020 events have been released.
A limited number of tickets for the LA fest will be available June 7 at 6 p.m. Spanish time. For more information, visit the Primavera Sound website.
