One of the world’s biggest music festivals, the 15th edition of Primavera Sound came to an end on Sunday, June 5th 2016.
At the northern end of Barcelona, besides the city’s Mediterranean sea waterfront, lies Parc del Fòrum, an impressive public gathering space crowned with a massive photovoltaic cell. It’s the perfect scenic backdrop for its multiple stages.
Radiohead’s new album, LCD Sound System’s reunion, and more – here are the five moments that mattered.
Wednesday afternoon – The Parc del Fórum opens its doors
June 1, 5pm CEST
A public park situated by the seaside, the Fórum is the perfect urban set-up for the Spanish festival.
Fans arrived on Wednesday afternoon for the first of 150+ gigs scheduled from June 1-5.
Thursday night – Tame Impala throws confetti
June 2, 11.30pm CEST
Hordes of festival-goers gathered in front of the H&M stage for the Australian band’s late-night set.
Bright, psychedelic pop armed with confetti cannons made their show a very special one.
Early Friday morning – LCD Soundsystem returns
June 2, 01.10am CEST
The band from Brooklyn reunited recently – and this was one of their first sets since they announced
their return. Below a giant mirror ball, James Murphy’s band turned the festival into a giant rave.
Friday night: Radiohead presents their new album
June 3, 10.15pm CEST
Two hours and 23 songs ravished the fans of the English band. Thom Yorke’s squad released the new
album A Moon Shaped Pool early May and officially started their summer tour at Primavera Sound. Singalongs
erupted constantly, and the entire crowd shivered when Yorke started singing their debut single,
‘Creep’, in a last-minute addition to the encore.
Saturday night – PJ Harvey performs her latest record
June 4, 10.35pm CEST
The British musician, singer and songwriter released her latest record, The Hope Six Demolition Project,
back in April. Currently on tour in support of the album, she performed in the fading lights of the Spanish
summer at the Parc del Fórum.
