Aphex Twin, Justice and Richie Hawtien have been confirmed for NOS Primavera Sounds in Portugal!
Primavera Sound is a music festival that takes place between the end of May and beginning of June in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain and Oporto, Portugal. The first edition took place in 2001 in Poble Espanyol and in 2005 it moved to the Parc del Fòrum, a much larger site on the seafront. The nature of the festival (urban and an integrated part of the city) and the wide range of bands represented have made Primavera Sound a meeting point for artists and spectators from all generations.
The festival has always succeeded in bringing together in its line up both the latest independent music tendencies and artists with a consolidated career, while presenting all styles and genres and being fully committed to quality pop, rock and the most underground tendencies of electronic and dance music.
Today the Portuguese version of the festival took to Instagram to announce the first few names for the 2017’s edition of the festival, the names that stood out the most were Justice whom recently announced a world tour, Nicolas Jaar, Richie Hawtin, Flying Lotus, Bicep, Skepta, Mano Le Tough, Sampha, Run The Jewels, Death Grips and Metronomy.
