Barcelona’s Primavera Sound has shared the full line-up for its 2022 festival.
Gorillaz, Massive Attack, Honey Dijon and recent DJ Mag cover star India Jordan are among the many confirmed names for the 2022 event, which will run over two weekends next year, with a brand new stand alone programme set between the core festivals.
The events will be held in Sant Adrià de Besòs and Barcelona, Spain. The first weekend will run 2nd to 4th June, where the theme will be ‘In Search of Lost Time’. The second weekend, 9th to 11th June, has the theme ‘Time Regained’.
Dua Lipa, Charli XCX, Run The Jewels, Mogwai, Gabber Modus Operandi, Gilles Peterson, Tyler The Creator, Disclosure, DJ Shadow, Slowthai, Autechre, Little Simz, Call Super b2b Shanti Celeste and Oscar Mulero are among the other names on the huge lineup.
Primavera is also launching Primavera A La Ciutat to run between the weekends; a series of 150 concerts across ten venues in Barcelona from 5th to 8th June. Apolo, Razzmatazz 1 and 2, Sidecar, Luz de Gas, RED58, Jamboree, La Nau, LAUT, Bóveda and VOL are among the locations listed.
Additionally, the festival is planning a huge party on 12th June to bring the expansive programme to an end. Brunch On The Beach will see a host of celebrated DJs descend on Sant Adrià de Besòs, including Chaos In The CBD, Héctor Oaks, Nina Kraviz, Peggy Gou and Amelie Lens.
Passes for both the city concerts — which have 15% capacity reserved for individual sales — and coastal finale are included in all weekend Primavera tickets, which go on general release Tuesday 1st June. Anyone who was attending Primavera 2020 or 2021, both of which were cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, are eligible to exchange for a spot in the crowd next year and will be contacted by ticket operators.
Earlier in 2021, Primavera Sound funded a same-day COVID testing trial for music events, and subsequent research in the UK has found ‘no detectible spread of the virus’ from indoor events with good ventilation and testing in place, raising hopes live music could be on the cusp of a return.
