Last year, Primavera Sound announced that the festival will take place in both Barcelona and Madrid for the first time, sharing in a press statement that the two cities will “mirror each other on two consecutive weekends”, taking place at The Parc del Fòrum in Barcelona from June 1-3, and the Ciudad del Rock in Arganda del Rey in Madrid from June 8-10.
In total there will be over 200 performances in each city, which will feature a “shared line-up shared 620 kilometers apart, with a few small exceptions”.
A press statement from the festival previously read: “Look for yourself in the Primavera Sound 2023 line-up… and find yourself. Because we assure you that you are there. After twenty editions, the festival is the mirror in which the community that will come from near and far to Barcelona and for the first time to Madrid next June looks at itself and recognises itself, but after everything it has experienced, this reflection goes in two directions, marking the richest musical itinerary we can think of: Primavera Sound also looks for and finds itself in its own audience.
“The learning is therefore twofold, just like the venues where a line-up will be deployed in which everything matters, full of surprises and at the same time familiar.”
All tickets for Primavera Sound Barcelona 2023 and Primavera Sound Madrid 2023 are on sale now. You can find additional information here.
Meanwhile, New Order recently announced that they will launch a new Manchester multi-venue music festival and conference with a show at South By Southwest Music Festival (SXSW) next week.
