Primavera Sound 2019

The wildly popular Primavera Sound festival has announced the artists who will take to the stages in its 2019 edition, which will be held at the Parc del Fòrum in Barcelona from Friday, May 30 to Saturday, June 1. This year, half of the artists on the line-up are women, bringing more equality and just as much brilliance to the festival.

Rosalía, Solange, Janelle Monáe, Erykah Badu, Robyn and Miley Cyrus are tops among the list of women performing that also includes highlights like FKA Twigs, Carly Rae Jepsen and Courtney Barnet, plus stellar male artists such as Tame Impala, J Balvin, Future, James Blake and Kurt Vile & The Violators.

Key players who hit it big in the ’90s feature as usual, including Jarvis Cocker, Suede, Stereolab, Nas, Neneh Cherry, Róisín Murphy, Primal Scream, Guided by Voices, Built to Spill, Stephen Malkmus and Liz Phair, who also make room for new sensations of urban music and contemporary pop like Kate Tempest, Princess Nokia, Yung Beef, Empress Of, Charli XCX and Kali Uchis.

The eclectic line-up spans EBM from veterans Nitzer Ebb to alternative rock from Dirty Projectors, plus avant-garde pop from Julia Holter, club pop from Jungle, urban soul from Nathy Peluso, a load of reggaeton artists (Ivy Queen, DJ Playero, Japanese, Don Chezina, Hurricane G, Tony Touch) and much more.

As for electronic music, look out for Richie Hawtin, Nina Kraviz, Modeselektor, Helena Hauff, Objekt, Veronica Vasicka, Yves Tumor, Apparat, Suzanne Ciani, SOPHIE and Mykki Blanco, as well as artists in Primavera Bits, a festival within the festival on the other side of the Por Fòrum bridge.
