A total of 39 bands and artists will present their music live to the audiences of Barcelona during a whole weekend within the framework of Primavera Club, which like last autumn, will be the perfect opportunity to discover, first hand, a great variety of innovative artists, most of whom will be playing in the Catalan capital for the first time.
From the 23rd to the 25th October and with the support of Heineken and Ray-Ban, who consolidate their backing of Primavera Sound and their understanding of music, four mythical concert venues of the city -Apolo, La  de Apolo, Teatre Principal and El Teatro Latino- will become testing grounds to measure the talent of the new names from the international and national scenes.
A heterogeneous line up meticulously brought together by the people behind Primavera Sound festival convinced that these musical offerings be the talk of the town in the next few months, as happened after the last edition with bands such as Jungle, Movement, Ought and East India Youth.
Tropicalism from Cristobal and The Sea, experimentation by Deradoorian (formerly of Dirty Projectors), psychedelia from J Fernandez, U.S. Girls on the 4AD label, the jangle sound of Ultimate Painting (with members of Mazes and Veronica Falls), arty electronic textures by Empress Of, Novella’s hypnotic guitars, darkness from the Scottish band NAKED, the personal universe of Hazte Lapón and the eighties-type melodies of Bastante are some of the pop proposals that can be seen during the last week of October at Primavera Club.
Folk from whatever way you look at it also has a significant presence at this edition, with the visit of the creator of one of the best albums of 2014, Richard Dawson, and Jessica Pratt with her more classical stance in the genre clearly influenced by the big names of the 60s. The Australian Fraser A. Gorman, a promising artist and label mate of Courtney Barnett and the American artist Samantha Crain with her raw folk-rock, as well as the local bands Jilguero and Sant Miquel, one of the surprises of the year with his dark and introspective singer song writing, will also be performing at the festival.
The irresistible German project Roosevelt and the powerful British artists Shura and Formation will represent the most electronic side of pop. The rest of the electronic music spectrum will be filled by Golden Teacher with their danceable and experimental music, the Italians Ninos Du Brasil on Hospital Productions label and avant-garde techno by Moiré from London.
On the rockier side of the line up the band Algiers that has surprised everyone with a debut on which they mix soul, gospel, rock, proto punk and electronic music with a high political contents is well worth a mention. Primavera Club will also witness festive riot grrrl sound of Chastity Belt, garage power pop by Mike Krol, Holögrama’s lysergic kraut, the melodic intimacy of Cala Vento, the ambient post rock by Astralia shoegaze by Heather and Redthread’s obscurantism.
The most extreme part of the line up is somewhere between the doom metal with elements of black and ambient of Bell Witch, Monarch! and Barbarian Swords and the experimentation and noise of Container and Evan Caminiti. Other proposals clearly linked to experimental music are Blood Quartet (the link between the local band Murnau B. and the mythical New York musician Mark Cunningham), the fusion of sound and dance by the Ensemble Topogràfic and the overwhelming noise of Belgium band Raketkanon.
The cult pianist Lubomyr Melnyk, considered to be the fastest pianist in the world and pioneer of “continuous music”, deserves a special mention.
The programme will be completed by sessions from Dj Fra, Dj Coco, Dj Kosmos, Graham and Daniel Gon, who will be behind the decks at Nitsa club to accompany the festival audience into the early hours.
