he’s on his way to death Primavera Sound, already huge celebration Barcelona It was proposed to throw the house out the window this year to celebrate the twentieth edition in style and say goodbye to the pandemic with the return of live music. With figures that can be considered logical: half a thousand concerts, 11 uninterrupted days of music, 160,000 square meters of venue… the numbers are so high they can hardly be managed.
