The 5 Irish acts performing Primavera Pro in have been unveiled

As we roll on into May the giant that is Primavera Sound festival fast approaches.

One aspect of the festival, among many, that we really like is Primavera Pro, a subset of the main festival that showcases hotly tipped acts from individual countries to international industry representatives.

In coordination with Music From Ireland, 5 Irish acts will once again be hosted at this year’s festival.

Today it’s been announced that those five acts are Thumper, Kojaque, Wyvern Lingo, A.Smyth & Laoise.

It’s interesting to see the diversity of genre and style picked for this year’s showcase. Thumper hold down the rock vibes with Irish hip-hop and pop music also getting a look in. It’s a shame there’s not an electronic or dance group on the lineup, as the sound is easily among the nation’s most vibrant genres, but with only 5 slots available not everyone could be catered for.
