Five Highlights from Primavera Sound 2016

P-20160603-00419_News.jpgOne 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.

Friday night: Radiohead presents their new album

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.
