Primavera Sound, the Barcelona, Spain festival, has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns. Originally set to take place June 3-7, Primavera will now take place Aug. 26-30.
“Faced with this constantly changing scenario, the restrictions imposed by the authorities on the celebration of public shows and on the free movement of people (making the participation of the announced artists difficult and in many cases impossible) and in coordination with the Generalitat de Catalunya, the Barcelona City Council and the Sant Adrià de Besòs City Council, we are forced to postpone the upcoming edition of Primavera Sound Barcelona for reasons of force majeure known to us all,” wrote the festival in a lengthy statement on its website.
“We feel obliged and responsible to contribute insofar as we can to the survival of the live music scene, whose role will be key to the return to normality after this absolutely unprecedented situation that has never been faced before by the cultural sector and all its agents: artists and their teams, agencies, promoters, venues, festivals, stage builders, technical and production teams, bar staff, cleaning and security staff, and in general the thousands of people involved in the sector,” continued the statement.
Tickets purchased for the original dates will be valid for the rescheduled festival. For more information, visit primaverasound.com.
