SPAIN: The 17th edition of Primavera Sound has increased the festival’s commitment to representing electronic music through its revamped space, Primavera Bits.

During the 18 hours of uninterrupted daily programming, a total of 62 performances will take place in this expanded area of 12,000 m2 (5000 more than last year) that also doubles its capacity to 10,000 people. An important innovation this year is the incorporation of a second stage exclusively dedicated to live performances that will cohabit with the impressive number of DJ sessions programmed.

The already extensive line-up is now complemented by the presence of Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor, Jackmaster, Fairmont, Kiasmos (DJ), Marvin & Guy, Ian Pooley, and Golden Bug. These join the already announced !!! (Chk Chk Chk), Sinkane and Patrick Codenys.

The brand new Desperados Club will kick off at midday and will host the now classic Bowers & Wilkins Sound System, repeating once again its annual collaboration with the festival. With the extraordinary sound quality that characterises the prestigious speaker brand, its booth will be manned by an array of international artists. There will also be a considerable increase in the number of shows thanks to the new Bacardí Live stage, backed by the historic house of rums, which will be devoted to live electronic acts.

As at the last edition, the site will be connected to the beach via an access near the Desperados Club that will be open from midday to 9pm and there will be towels, showers and changing rooms for those who want to cool down in the sea. The food on offer will cater for all tastes with its selection of bars, food trucks and the picnic area. At the same time Casa Bacardí will have a wide and varied cocktail selection.
