Names such as Kings of Leon, Anderson Paak, Cardi B and HAIM are now also on the bill. The arrival of non-Spanish acts such as The Killers, Foals, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pixies, Royal Blood and Deftones was previously announced for the festival that could not take place this year.
Primavera Sound in Barcelona, one of the largest music festivals in Europe, has many major international bands and artists booked for June. The poster is almost complete with names such as Massive Attack, Tame Impala, The National, The Gorillaz, The Strokes and Tyler, The Creator.
Although it remains to be seen whether it is possible that all those bands and artists can catch a plane to Spain, this could offer hope for Dutch festivals. If names have been booked for Spain, they may also dare to schedule festivals such as Pinkpop (June) and Lowlands (August). The former has already announced Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Deftones, among others. Lowlands has programmed the Dutch The Opposites as the first headliner.
