Primavera announces full line-up for 2023 festival in Barcelona and Madrid

Spain's Primavera Sound has revealed the complete line-up for next year's festivals in Barcelona and, for the first time, Madrid.

The flagship Barcelona festival will run from Thursday, 1st June, through Saturday, the 3rd, at Parc Del Forum, with the debut Madrid edition taking place at Cívitas Metropolitano from Thursday, 8th June, to Saturday, the 10th. This year's theme is "I'll be your mirror", a wink at the two locations' line-ups being near-"reflections" of each other.

The Wednesday before each festival officially begins, Pet Shop Boys will headline a free opening concert, alongside Jake Bugg, Confidence Man and La Paloma. A final party in collaboration with Brunch -In will close out Primavera's dual editions on the following Sundays with the likes of Diplo, Ben Böhmer, CamelPhat, Carlita and Two Ex.

For the main events, the headliners are Kendrick Lamar, Calvin Harris, Rosalía, Blur, Halsey and Depeche Mode for their first festival headline set in five years. Also named in the line-ups are: Four Tet, FKA twigs, Darkside, Caroline Polachek, Fred again.., Pusha T, Skrillex, Jayda G, Charlotte de Witte, Daphni, Kelela, Hudson Mohawke, PinkPantheress, CCL, Josey Rebelle, Voices From The Lake, Nia Archives, Julia Holter, Yves Tumor, Overmono, TSHA, DJ Storm, Nazira, Verraco, Sudan Archives, Mala and many more.
