The renowned Primavera Sound Music Festival is having a second edition in 2012 for the first time. Porto was the place chosen to host it from 7th to 10th June, one week after Barcelona’s instalment. The festival will take place in Parque da Cidade, an astonishing 83 hectare urban park right by the sea.
The organisers have already unveiled a tasty batch of bands that will perform in one of the 4 different stages. ATP will run one of the stages like they have been doing in Barcelona for the past few years.
Some of the artists confirmed so far include the likes of Björk, Explosions in the Sky, The Drums, Wilco, Yo La Tengo, Death Cab For Cutie and Neon Indian. Head over to the Primavera Sound website to see the rest of the line up.
