Oh Lorde, Primavera Sound reveals extraordinary edition for 2022


Primavera Sound has set the bar high for next year’s hugely anticipated festival season. The music event will expand over two weekends, returning to Barcelona from 2 – 12 June, 2022.

“An extraordinary edition that is explained by the combination of the two years without a festival that we have had to face and the desire to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Primavera Sound as it deserves to be celebrated.”


The first weekend of Primavera Sound 2022 (June 2-4) – “the festival we owe you” – will feature a large number of the artists who were booked to play in 2020 and 2021, including The Strokes, Tyler, the Creator, Pavement, Tame Impala, Massive Attack, Gorillaz, The National, Charli XCX, Beck and Jorja Smith.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds will also perform during the first weekend, as will Caribou, Jamie xx, Earl Sweatshirt, Beach House, Disclosure, IDLES, Slowthai, King Krule and more.

Headliners including The Strokes, Tyler, The Creator, Tame Impala, Gorillaz, Massive Attack and Jorja Smith will also return for weekend two of Primavera 2022 (June 9-11).


Weekend two will also welcome long-awaited performances featuring new music and classics from Lorde – who will emerge from her hiatus with her third album after her visit in 2018 –, Dua Lipa, Megan Thee Stallion, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Interpol, Run The Jewels, M.I.A., Playboi Carti, and Burna Boy. 

The fine print on the Primavera Sound lineup always serves as a compass for the years to come, new voices and future festival headliners such as Griff, Erika de Casier, Priya Ragu, Holly Humbertsone, and Fred Again.. will make their debut.


In-between the two festival weekends, Primavera Sound will host 150+ concerts spread over more than 10 music venues in Barcelona. ‘Primavera a la Ciutat’ will be a festival within itself that is included in any of the tickets for the first or second weekend.

Some of these concerts will be part of themed party showcases such as those by label PC Music (with Charli XCX, Hannah Diamond, A.G. Cook, EASYFUN and HYD).

Primavera Sound 2022 will end on June 12 with ‘Brunch on the Beach’, an epic after-party featuring sets from Nina Kraviz, Amelie Lens, Peggy Gou and more.

Tickets for Primavera 2022 will go on sale on June 1 via DICE. Ticketholders for the cancelled 2020 and 2021 editions of Primavera will be able to attend one weekend of Primavera 2022 of their choosing, or they can upgrade their tickets in order to attend both weekends.
