Radiohead, PJ Harvey, LCD Soundsystem! 150+ Artists Announced for Primavera Sound 2016


Over 150 artists may have been selected for the 2016 Primavera Sound Festival (June 1-5, 2016) but the one act generating all the buzz is Radiohead which will be performing their new album (their first live performance since 2012). They’ll be joined in Barcelona by the reunited LCD Soundsystem, rock icon PJ Harvey, Sigur Rós, and Tame Impala.

Our editor-in-chief went for his first time to Primavera Sound and couldn’t stop raving about the show. Tickets are already on sale via the official website.
