In our review, NME shared: “After a weekend in its midst, it’s not hard to see why Primavera Sound is so beloved. There are few gripes to be had here, and the main one is the several agonising clashes you have to do battle with each day – a problem that can only come with having such a stacked line-up in the first place.

“A fun, freeing few days in Barcelona full of great music is never something to complain about, though. Roll on 2025.”

This year’s edition saw an entire stage dedicated to the late Steve Albini, whose band Shellac performed at the festival for the last twenty years.

Albini passed away aged 61 earlier this month due to a heart attack. He was well known for being the producer of major albums such as Nirvana’s ‘In Utero‘, Pixies’ ‘Surfer Rosa’, PJ Harvey’s ‘Rid of Me’, Manic Street Preachers‘ ‘Journal For Plague Lovers’ and more. PJ Harvey went on to pay tribute to the producer during her own set at the festival.

Primavera has previously revealed it would not take place in Madrid as it has previously. Its 2022 edition took place in both Barcelona and Madrid, but following a series of issues in Madrid, they announced it would no longer be hosted in the city.

“Although both the city of Madrid and the whole region welcomed us with open arms, with a warmth that was mirrored in the institutions, the cultural agents and of course the audience, the external difficulties that the festival had to face in the final stretch of the pre-production gave rise to one of the most complicated events that Primavera Sound has ever had to face,” said Almudena Heredero, director of Primavera Sound Madrid, in a press release.

However, the festival will make its debut in Peru this November. Lima will host the festival on November 22 and December 2, 7 and 8, where The Cure, Bad Gyal, Pet Shop Boys and Bad Religion will headline. Just Mustard and The Cure’s regular opening act The Twilight Sad are also set to appear at the festival.
