For more than sixteen years now Primavera Sound has been consistently offering
successful musical events. The Barcelona-based music promotion company has, since
its modest beginnings, developed a strong commitment to music so that spectators
from different generations can enjoy the experience of live music to the full. This
is clearly reflected in the innovative quality of its events, that exude coherence,
eclecticism and the love of risk taking and are characterised by its unmistakeable
artistic line strongly influenced by rock, pop and the most underground tendencies
of dance music.

Its festival Primavera Sound, that has taken place in Barcelona since 2001, has
consolidated itself as a model reference for urban festivals that is internationally
considered as an unmissable musical event. Pixies, Arcade Fire, Queens of the Stone
Age, The National, Nine Inch Nails, Kendrick Lamar, Neil Young, Sonic Youth,
Portishead, Radiohead, Pet Shop Boys, Pavement, Echo & The Bunnymen, Lou Reed,
My Bloody Valentine, Brian Wilson, Pulp, Patti Smith, James Blake, The National,
Cat Power, Public Enemy, Grinderman, Franz Ferdinand, Television, Devo, Enrique
Morente, The White Stripes, LCD Soundsystem, Tindersticks, PJ Harvey, Shellac,
Dinosaur Jr., New Order, Fuck Buttons, Swans, Melvins, Psychic TV, Spiritualized,
The Cure, Bon Iver, La Buena Vida, Death Cab For Cutie, Iggy & The Stooges, De La
Soul, Marianne Faithfull, Mazzy Star, Blur, Wu-Tang Clan, Phoenix, The Jesus and
Mary Chain o Tame Impala, are just a few of the many artists who have played on the
stages of the festival to this day.

Moreover, during this time, in parallel to the main Barcelona event, Primavera Pro
has also taken off. An international meeting aimed at professionals from the music
industry that since its first edition in 2010 has become an international reference
for independent music. Its programme comprises talks, conferences, workshops,
showcases, meetings, etc. that take place during the day at the Day Pro Conference
and at night in the exclusive Night Pro area, on the Parc del Forum site, where its
own stage hosts concerts by newcomer bands from the participating countries.

NOS Primavera Sound, Primavera Sound's Portuguese counterpart, has taken place in the
city of Oporto since 2012 and grown steadily thus consolidating the expansion of the
Primavera spirit beyond our borders. The festival takes place a week after the
Barcelona edition and artists such as Antony and the Johnsons, Interpol, FKA Twigs,
Death Cab for Cutie, Patti Smith, The National, Kendrick Lamar, Haim, Slowdive,
Suede, The Flaming Lips, Rufus Wainwright, Wilco, Beach House, Yo La Tengo, Blur,
Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, James Blake, PJ Harvey, Sigur R¢s o Daniel Johnston
have already played on the stages of Parque da Cidade.

As well as its festivals, Primavera Sound is also behind other big events such as
Primavera Club, an indoor festival that takes place every autumn in different venues
around Barcelona and offers the occasion to discover many national and international
artists that represent what the organisers see as the immediate future of the music

The Barcelona company also organises numerous tours all year round in Spain amongst
which Bonnie Prince Billy, Apparat, Explosions In The Sky, Deerhunter, of Montreal,
Battles, The xx, Beach House, David Byrne & St. Vincent, Tame Impala, Royal Blood,
Sufjan Stevens, Chvrches, Kurt Vile & The Violators, Nicolas Jaar, James Blake, Tycho,
Teho Teardo & Blixa Bargeld o Mac DeMarco, to name but a few stand out.

El Segell del Primavera joined the multidisciplinary proposals of Primavera Sound in
2013, proof of its obvious growth and total commitment to quality music and to the
international projection of national bands. The label has around 15 artists and bands
associated with it and has already released over twenty records.

Also in 2013, with a view to strengthening the festival's association with the city
of Barcelona, La Botiga del Primavera Sound opened in the historic Born district. In
this shop vinyl lovers can find a choice selection of local, national and international
references as well as books, music DVDs, gadgets, gifts and merchandising. And during
the weekend the shop backs the local music scene and the most underground of talents
- that sometimes come from the other side of the country or from abroad- by hosting
concerts and DJ sessions. april 27, 2017

instrumental pieces. The EP kicks off with Wales from the band's most recent album
Going, Going...Spurred on by this track, and using the name of the old international
football competition between the four home nations, David Gedge utilised his love of
pop, rock, film scores and football as inspiration to create a further three
