And who can blame them? To make up for lost time, Primavera Sound is going to put on 11 days of music in Barcelona next year, from June 2nd to 12th.
The plan is to make up for two festivals that did not happen, the organisers are putting on two distinct weekends with two distinct lineups next year at Parc del Fòrum (June 2nd to 4th and June 9th to 11th), which means two separate festivals with 400 artists playing with gigs in city venues between the two weekends.
The weekend lineups will be completely different from one another, except for some prominent artists who will play at both.
The lineups are being announced next Tuesday, May 25th.
It all coincides with its 20th anniversary.
But what if I already had a ticket for 2020 / 2021?
All tickets already purchased for the 2020 and 2021 editions will allow ticket holders to attend Primavera Sound 2022 Barcelona – Sant Adrià. The buyer must choose in the case of full festival tickets, between one of the two weekends, and it will also be possible to purchase an upgrade to be able to go to both weekends; in the case of day tickets, between one of the six main days at the Parc del Fòrum, regardless of which weekend.
Ticket operators (DICE, Redtkt, Ticketmaster and Festicket) will contact all ticket holders on May 25th with the details of the process. In the case of tickets purchased at La Virreina, the buyer will have to do the process via the Primavera Sound webpage. As of June 1st, it will be possible for anyone who wishes to do so to request a refund.
New tickets for Primavera Sound 2022 Barcelona – Sant Adrià in all their forms will go on sale on Wednesday, June 1st on DICE.
