The organizers behind the Primavera Sound music festival in Barcelona have announced they will be postponing until this upcoming August.

With most of the other festivals pushed back, clearly they’ll be trying to honor the existing lineup already announced and keep the major headliners onboard, but it’s not likely that all of the artists confirmed will be able to make it back.

There are things that only happen once in a lifetime. The current global COVID-19 health crisis is, unfortunately, one of them. But it won’t be the only one. The spirit of solidarity and collective response of society in the face of this emergency will live on for a long time, and will allow us to embrace exceptional situations and overcome the challenge… and to literally embrace each other once it is over. Faced with this constantly changing scenario, the restrictions imposed by the authorities on the celebration of public shows and on the free movement of people (making the participation of the announced artists difficult and in many cases impossible) and in coordination with the Generalitat de Catalunya, the Barcelona City Council and the Sant Adrià de Besòs City Council, we are forced to postpone the upcoming edition of Primavera Sound Barcelona for reasons of force majeure known to us all. Our absolute priority has always been to guarantee the safety of our audience, artists and all the people involved in the festival.

Stay tuned to the Primavera Sound website for additional details.
