Listen to our FAVORITE ALBUMS OF 2014. Make sure you don't miss any tunes: FOLLOW US ON TWITTER.

Shouldn’t we all get to go Barcelona and listen to great music? Isn’t that your life is missing? It sounds positively delightful to us. Primavera rounded out their lineup today, and, like NYC’s Governor’s Ball, the lineup is ridiculous. The Catalonians put the headline emphasis on alt/indie rock heavy-hitters (Phoenix, Grizzly Bear, The Postal Service, Blur, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, My Bloody Valentine, Band of Horses), but dig into the lineup at all and you’ll find excellence in whatever genre tickles your fancy. Just check out the poster below, there’s too many for us to list.

Primavera Sound 2013 will go down May 22-26th. Tickets are available for 160€ (approx $212) at the festival’s official site. Here is the full lineup:

Reviews

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
