Primavera Sound first started in 2001 and has since then successively established itself on the international scene for music festivals. The festival had more than 100,000 visitors in 2011 and has been featuring really heavy names such as Iggy & Stooges, The White Stripes, Patti Smith and Pulp.
The brand of Primavera is not only covering music performances but also includes San Miguel Club and Primavera Pro. Last mentioned, Primavera Pro, is a big venue for people within the business and is held for the third year in a row. Just opposite to the location of the actual festival, Primavera Pro is taking place and is this year focusing on three following matters;
The role of the artist in society and in their music career
Festivals and big music events
The new ways to promote and finance music
With over 30 lectures, workshops, receptions and showcases, there's no doubt that the daily program 2012 will pursue hot discussions.
See you there!
