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.
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.
Primavera Sound will take place in Barcelona From May 30th – June 1st. Tickets, at €215+, are on sale now here.
