Situated right on the coast with some stages on the beach, the friendly event creates a nice atmosphere to soak up the music on offer. Primavera Sound takes place at the Parc del Forum, Barcelona, Spain between Thursday 2nd and Saturday 4th June 2016.
Primavera Sound offers six outdoor stages and one of the biggest auditoriums in Europe. With events throughout Barcelona for the week surrounding the festival, this is more like a massive summer party than the usual festival.
The early bird offer has ended. Tickets are priced at 175 euros plus booking fee.
Please note camping or accommodation is not included.
Minors up to 14 years old can attend the festival free of charge under the supervision of their parents or guardians. 15 years old minors will be able to get in the festival by buying the corresponding ticket but will also need to be accompanied by their parents or guardians. The guardians must bring the authorization identifying themselves as such.
