Primavera LA Is Announced For September 2022!

Primavera LA

Primavera LA

 

Primavera is the Coachella of Spain, it was canceled this year as every gigantic festival on the planet, but it will be back in 2022 over two weekends with different artists. The fantastic and massive lineup will include Pavement, the Strokes, Massive Attack, Tame Impala, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Gorillaz, Tyler the Creator, Lorde, Dua Lipa, Megan Thee Stallion, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Massive Attack, the Strokes, Tame Impala, Bikini Kill, Kacey Musgraves, Earl Sweatshirt, the National, Beck, Charli XCX, Caroline Polachek, Jorja Smith, Beach House, Caribou, Shellac, Jamie xx, 100 gecs, Dinosaur Jr., Kim Gordon, Sharon Van Etten, King Krule, Yo La Tengo, Rina Sawayama, Big Freedia, Brockhampton, Fontaines D.C., Weyes Blood, Helado Negro, slowthai, Disclosure, Ben UFO, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Big Thief, Run the Jewels, M.I.A., Jay Electronica, Jessie Ware, Slowdive, Mogwai, Playboi Carti, Courtney Barnett, Brittany Howard, Dry Cleaning, Japanese Breakfast, Burna Boy, Clairo, Pa Salieu, India Jordan, Squid, Special Interest, Romy, Sky Ferreira, the Weather Station, Arooj Aftab, Angel Bat Dawid… It goes on and on and it seems like a good part of the music scene that I find interesting is participating. However, Primavera has been a Barcelona institution for 20 years, but the good news is that it is coming to Los Angeles next year.

Primavera LA was actually supposed to make its debut in 2020, but obviously, this was not meant to happen and 2021 being a transition year, it is now announced for 2022. So mark your calendars, the festival weekend has already been upgraded to 3 days, from September 16th to the 18th.

The music fest will take place at the Los Angeles State Historic Park, the original place of the FYF fest before they regrettably made the move to Exposition Park, downtown LA. The park has recently been renovated and has a capacity of 25,000. In comparison, Coachella can bring 125,000 people, which means that, if Primavera LA is extremely successful, they will have to find another location in a few years.

But we are not there yet. As for the lineup? Nothing has been announced yet – I am hoping for Radiohead, Massive Attack, and Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds of course – but there are some rumors that The Strokes, Tame Impala, and Nine Inch Nails were some of the headliners for 2020, and looking at the Barcelona lineup, it would not be surprising. If it’s true, Primavera LA would be a good successor to the FYF Fest with the same focus on the indie rock scene. The only difference is that FYF was a Goldenvoice/AEG production, and Primavera LA will be handled by Live Nation. Since Goldenvoice has just announced two festivals for 2022 (Cruel World and Just Like Heaven) with a heavy focus on nostalgia and targeting a certain aging population, we could expect a more edgy, risky lineup for Primavera LA.
