Primavera Sound, which had The Strokes, Lana Del Rey, Massive Attack and Pavement on its line-up for this year, has been cancelled.
“Primavera Sound announces the most difficult decision in its history: finally we cannot celebrate the 20th anniversary of Primavera Sound during 2020, as we all would have liked,” a statement begins.
“And it won’t be for lack of trying. When, on March 28th, we announced the change of date to the end of August, we did so under the supervision and with the green light from the local and health authorities, who at that moment validated its celebration this year. However with the evolution of this unprecedented health crisis and faced with the uncertainty of the easing of lockdown measures for festivals, we find ourselves obliged to postpone the next edition of Primavera Sound Barcelona, for reasons of force majeure, until next year: from 2nd to 6th June 2021.”
The statement goes on to confirm tickets for 2020 will be valid next year, but refunds for those who don’t want to take up that option open on Wednesday, June 3rd.
