It’s headliners like those that create an abundance of energy and an intensely passionate atmosphere. The festivals prime focus is on rock, pop, and dance and the team behind it continuously generates a diverse line-up for all ages to appreciate. 2001 was the first Primavera Sound and since the first ever launch its expansion has been rapid.
2010 was the year that Primavera Pro was introduced to the festival. This fixture was specifically created as a kind of convention for all musical professionals. It now has a respected reputation amongst people working within the music industry and offers the chance to participate in showcases, talks, workshops, meetings, and conferences.
Throughout the evening the Primavera Pro stage bursts into life with a range of performances from international newcomers and up and coming artists. If you’re in the industry, new to the industry, or wanting to enter the industry, this event is where you need to be.
