The 2023 edition of Primavera Sound will once again happen over two weekends. But this time it will be held in two different Spanish cities: on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of June it will take place, as usual, in the Parc del Fòrum of Barcelona-Sant Adrià del Besòs, and on the 8th, 9th and 10th in the Ciudad de Rock of Arganda del Rey, in Madrid. In both cities, Primavera Sound will maintain its identity as an urban festival with the Primavera a la Ciutat programme for the rest of the week. Also, in both Barcelona and Madrid, this programme will be integrated into the cultural spaces of each venue with different musical activities before the main days.
For many reasons, this double venue will not come as a surprise to those who know the history of Primavera Sound. After several years organizing the autumn festival Primavera Club both in Barcelona and Madrid and bringing an infinity of international tours to both cities all year round, making a Primavera Sound air shuttle a reality is, for us, not only a source of a great joy, but also a step forward which is as logical as it is natural. The landing in Madrid is just the latest chapter in our long and close relationship with the city, and also the first for everything to come: for communication and connections, for the history of a Primavera Sound that in 2023 will start in Barcelona and end in Madrid that can only benefit our audience. Double site – double excitement.
From Primavera Sound we cannot be more grateful to the Community of Madrid, the Town Hall of Madrid and the Town Hall of Arganda del Rey for all the ease and enthusiasm with which they have been and are working with us to make this edition, which we are so excited about, a reality in 2023.
