Primavera Sound is going global with a 2020 Los Angeles edition
Big news for the Primavera Sound Festival fans. The Barcelona-based festival is celebrating 20 years in 2020 and is preparing a huge year. The brand has announced a Los Angeles expansion for 2020.
The L.A. edition is set for September, 19-20 and will be held at the Los Angeles State Historic Park. Co-director Gabi Ruiz said in a press release: "We have been thinking about Los Angeles for many years now, and the celebration of our 20th anniversary felt like the perfect timing for the decision of crossing overseas. Our goal is to bring the Primavera Sound spirit and vibe to cities with a similar feel: creative, colourful and welcoming. And with this, to give something new to the city, to show a new side and new possibilities to be built and harvested together. So it’s a dream to finally say: yes, it had to be Los Angeles."
A limited amount of Early Bird tickets will be released on June 7th, 2019 at 9:00am PST so make sure you keep an eye on the official site.
