Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival has been canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic.
Organizers announced the bad news on the Official Website of Primavera festival, sharing the news of cancellation of 2021’s Festival by stating that,” due to the uncertainty surrounding the legal framework for large events on the original dates of the festival –from June 2nd to 6th–, which, added to the restrictions that currently exist, mean that we cannot work normally on the preparation of the festival nor ensure that, once the date arrives, it can be celebrated.”
The team behind the festival brought to our notice that arrangements to make the festival a safe and successful one started back in December 2020. The showrunner held clinical trials and was in regular touch with the concerning health authorities. The event’s 20th anniversary “deserves a party like the ones we are used to, and the global situation does not seem favorable to allowing something like this to happen this summer. At least not in a way in which we can live the full Primavera Sound experience.”
Following a similar pattern to the Cancelled 2020 event, ticket holders will be allowed to use their 2021 tickets for the 2022 edition. Refunds systems are also arranged for people starting June 2nd, on the same day the lineup for the 2022 edition is slated to announce. “We will make it doubly good in 2022,” the organizers promised. “Because yes, really, we will dance together again… and like never before.”
