Long-awaited Primavera Sound LA announces 2022 festival and lineup

Barcelona’s Primavera Sound festival will finally touch down in Los Angeles in 2022, after first announcing the 2020 event in 2019. Launching in the U.S. at Los Angeles State Historic Park, the September 16-18, 2022 festival includes headliners Arctic Monkeys, Lorde and Nine Inch Nails.

The indie-rock/pop-leaning lineup also features James Blake, Mitski, Arca, Khruangbin, BICEP, Clairo, Darkside, Buscabulla, Georgia, Faye Webster, Paloma Mami and more.

Now in its 20th year (in Barcelona, Spain with a Portugal edition that began in 2012), the global festival had plans for its inaugural event in 2020 in LA, however it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Initially scheduled as a two-day affair, Primavera Sound LA will now be a three-day extravaganza. The flagship Primavera Sound returns to Barcelona in 2022 for two weekends (June 2-4, June 9-11, 2022) with over 400 artists including top billing from The Strokes, Tame Impala, Lorde, Dua Lipa, Megan Thee Stallion, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Beck, Gorillaz, Jorja Smith, Tyler, The Creator, Massive Attack, Interpol and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The National, Pavement and Phoenix.
