Kendrick Lamar, Pusha T, NxWorries & More Slated for Primavera Sound

Primavera Sound has tapped acts including Kendrick Lamar, Pusha T, FKA Twigs, Baby Keem and NxWorries for festivals in Barcelona and Madrid.

Primavera Sound has announced their lineup for 2023 festivals in Barcelona and Madrid. Held on two consecutive weekends, the music festival will kickoff at Barcelona’s Parc del Fòrum from June 1-3 before being held at Madrid’s Ciudad del Rock in Arganda del Rey from June 8-10. During both weekends, acts scheduled to perform include Kendrick Lamar, FKA Twigs, Baby Keem, NxWorries, Pusha T, PinkPantheress, JPEGMAFIA, Tems, Channel Tres, Kelela, Nia Archives and more. In a press statement, organizers said that the two European cities will “mirror each other on two consecutive weekends.”

“The learning is therefore twofold, just like the venues where a line-up will be deployed in which everything matters, full of surprises and at the same time familiar,” the press statement added.

In total, over 200 music acts will perform in each European city, which will have a “shared line-up shared 620 kilometers apart, with a few small exceptions” and genres ranging from pop to salsa. The festival lineup announcement comes five months after Primavera Sound held their 2022 three-day festival, with Tyler, the Creator, Gorillaz and more as performing artists. Attendees went to Twitter to complain about lengthy bar queues, overcrowding, and a lack of access to water. Festival organizers later issued an apology saying they were “aware of the problems in the bar services” and were “working tirelessly” to fix the issues.

Tickets for the music festival go on sale Friday, December 1.
