Barcelona-based music festival Primavera Sound, considered one of Europe’s best, will be debuting in Los Angeles next year to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Continuing with its global expansion after bringing the event to Porto, Portugal by way of Oporto festival in 2012, the iconic spirit of Primavera Sound will be heading to Los Angeles State Historic Park in 2020.

Gabi Ruiz, one of the event’s directors, stated that “we have been thinking about Los Angeles for many years now, and the celebration of our 20th anniversary felt like the perfect timing for the decision of crossing overseas.” Ruiz continued by noting that the “goal is to bring the Primavera Sound spirit and vibe to cities with a similar feel: creative, colorful and welcoming. And with this, to give something new to the city, to show a new side and new possibilities to be built and harvested together.” In order to bring the festival to fruition, the festival has partnered with Live Nation.

When the festival first began in 2001, the annual event garnered just 7,000 audience members, and with its most recent edition, hosted a total of 220,000. The most recent event featured nearly 3,500 artists, with people hailing from over 150 countries around the world.

Currently, no lineup information has been announced, but a limited run of Early Bird tickets will be released on June 7 via Primavera Sound’s website. The festival itself has been scheduled for September 19-20 of next year. If you’d like to read the festival’s press release in its entirety, you can do so here.
