Primavera Sound has revealed the lineup for both 2022 weekends of the festival, featuring headliners Pavement, Gorillaz, Beck, Massive Attack, The National, The Strokes, and more. Organizers recently announced that the Barcelona, Spain festival will occur June 2nd–4th and 9th–11th. Next year’s event will also feature weekday concerts June 5th–8th and a Sunday “brunch on the beach” on the 12th.
The two-weekend approach has allowed organizers to label the first weekend “the festival that we owe you,” featuring many of the same acts from the pushed 2020 and 2021 events. For weekend two, dubbed “the festival that we owe ourselves,” Primavera Sound has recruited “artists who have accompanied us in recent months or whom we have been waiting for years.”
