Do you recall the 80’s and 90’s. For those who recall the 80’s you’ll be happy to know that The Pet Shop Boys will play at Primavera 2023. For those who recall the 90’s (both were in last century) Blur will also play the event. This is big news – for those who are interested. Let’s take a little closer look at what these “old timers” will be up to at the event slotted for next year.
According to This is Dig, Blur, Depeche Mode, Kendrick Lamar, Halsey, Pet Shop Boys and more are among acts slated to top the bill (not the actual music charts) at Primavera Sound 2023.
The line-up for the Spanish music festival was announced yesterday, 29 November, and will also feature the likes of Rosalía and Calvin Harris.
The festival will be held over two massive weekends – at its traditional Barcelona base of Parc Del Fòrum between May 31 and June 4, and at Madrid’s Arganda Del Rey between June 7 and June 11. Both editions of the event will explode with an opening party featuring The Pet Shop Boys, Jake Bugg, Confidence Man, and La Paloma, while both will conclude with a closing night filled with the likes of Ben Böhmer, Camelphat, Diplo, and many more. For those of you getting ready to attend, plan on not sleeping and possibly having a downed immune system because of it. You may also need hearing aids following – it’ll be very loud. If you ask me, if you’re that interested, watch it for free on YouTube.
Tickets for both the Barcelona and Madrid events go on sale on Thursday (December 1) at 12pm CET via DICE. They will cost €325 for full weekend passes or €125 for day tickets; double full festival tickets for both legs will be priced at €520. The welcome days will be free and open to the public until full capacity is reached.
So, there you have it. Spain. 2023. 80’s, 90’s, present. Doctor visit required.
