While some festivals are weighing options for 2021 editions, Primavera Sound has been busy curating an immense comeback lineup for 2022. The festival will make a splash next summer as it returns for a week-and-a-half-long event filled to the brim with music’s top acts. In fact, the lineup is so enormous, it is actually two lineups—one the organizers are calling, “the festival we owe you,” and the other being, “the festival that we owe ourselves.”
Starting on June 2, 2022 Primavera Sound will feature 10 days of music, with the first weekend taking place on June 2 – 4, 2022 weekday concerts spread throughout the day from June 5 – 8, 2022 the second weekend taking place on June 9 – 11, 2022 and a “brunch on the beach” being held on June 12, 2022. For those who purchased tickets to the 2020 and 2021 editions of the festival, an option to select one weekend of choice will be made available. Tickets for the event will be going on sale starting on June 1.
Combining the lineups that had initially been announced for the canceled 2020 and 2021 events, Primavera Sound’s 2022 return promises performances from the likes of Massive Attack, Disclosure, Jamie XX, DJ Harvey, Black Coffee, Khruangbin, 100 Gecs, Nick Murphy notably returning to his Chet Faker moniker, and so much more. Not an event to limit itself to one genre, Primavera Sound will also feature headliners Pavement, Gorillaz, Beck, The Strokes, Tame Impala, Tyler, the Creator, Lorde, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Dua Lipa, and many more. From Amelie Lens and M.I.A. to Bicep, Jay Electronica, and John Talbot, Primavera Sound is promising one of the most decorated lineups anyone’s seen in a long time. Additionally, even more artists are expected to be announced in the coming months. For now, zoom in and read the full lineup below.
