Here's the post that one of the bookers just posted on the FB group Primavera Sound Italia
So, this is Primavera Sound 2019.
An expanding line-up with the passion for music as a common denominator. So proud of having such a big amount of unique performances, special projects, live premieres and not-commercial-at-all artists even being such a huge festival.
Having in mind the huge amount of information, more than 200 artists, here are a few personal highlights (excluding headliners and more obvious names).
-GUIDED BY VOICES
-JAWBREAKER and JUNE OF 44
-STEREOLAB playing for the first time in 10 years
