Indie music arrives at Barcelona between the 28th and the 31st of May. The Condal City gets ready to host in the Parc del Fòrum one of the most important festivals of international music in the world: the Primavera Sound Festival 2014.
It is one of the most valued festivals in the national panorama by both the media and the public. Last year more than 170.000 people attended the Primavera Sound, and this year the attendance is expected to be even higher due to the music programme, which includes groups like the Indie rock band Arcade Fire, Nine Inch Nails, The National or Pixies. A wide range of band whose music will make the public tremble.
On Thursday the headliners of the festival will go on stage: Arcade Fire. Their show is one of the most eagerly awaited ones and it is expected to gather a large number of people. But we will also be able to see bands like Queens of the stone Age, Neutral Milk Hotel, Discloure, St. Vincent or Metronomy.
Good feelings will go on until Thursday, with legendary Indie bands like The National, Pixies or Slowdive. And Saturday’s programme will not deceive the public either, as it includes the rockers Nine Inch Nails or the rap singer Kendrick Lamar. This day bands like Volcano Choir, Caetano Veloso or Mogway will also have a highlighted position in the programme.
As an appetiser, the Primavera Sound organisation has programmed for this edition a series of previous concerts in the Apolo Salon in Barcelona on Monday 26th, Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th of May. Besides, on Wednesday the Parc del Fòrum will celebrate a free open day with shows by Sky Ferreira, Temples and Holy Ghost.
Although the area of the Parc del Fòrum is located a bit far away from the centre of Barcelona, the Primavera Sound is also a good opportunity to visit the Condal City and the most emblematic tourist attractions of Barcelona, like Las Ramblas.
Our recommendation for you to enjoy this festival to the maximum is that you stay in one of the hotels Petit Palace has at your disposal in Barcelona.
