Primavera Sound 20th anniversary announces date change due to COVID-19
Barcelona’s Primavera Sound was scheduled to have its 20th anniversary edition on June 3, but in light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the festival will be pushing back the event to August 26 – 30. Primavera Sound announces their postponement alongside Coachella, Bonnaroo, and many more, joining other organizers in hopes that the pandemic will be under control by late summer.
Previously announced featured acts at Primavera Sound included Lana Del Rey, The Strokes, Beck, Massive Attack, and The National, among others. The festival’s organizers released a statement on the festival’s postponement, which can be viewed in full on the event’s website. Their statement discusses the festival’s desire to ensure the safety of the audience, the artists, and the fans.
The website states, “Tickets already purchased for Primavera Sound Barcelona 2020 will continue to be valid for the new dates. Once the state of alarm decreed by the Government of Spain is over as well its possible extensions, we will give you more information and will reactivate the ticket sales…We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding in the face of this unprecedented situation.”
