Every year, between the end of May and the beginning of June, Barcelona celebrates its festival par excellence, the Primavera Sound. A music festival known around the world that attracts thousands of people year after year. In 2017, the festival celebrates its 16th edition between May 31 and June 4. As always, the Primavera Sound 2017 line-up has not left anyone indifferent. Groups like Frank Ocean, Arcade Fire, Solange, The XX or Bon Iver ensure a success of assistance in the esplanade of Parc del Fórum.
Just some time after the end of the festival, the organization puts up for sale the three-day tickets for the Primavera Sound of the following year. Although the line-up is not known, many people buy the tickets then because the price is lower. After the headlining are made public (at the end of the year), the subscriptions run out in a few weeks. The choice then is the Primavera Sound day tickets. In this case, the selling speed of the will depend on the bands that play on each of the days. So, if you look at the Primavera Sound 2017 schedule and see that your favorite artist acts the same day as any of the headliners, we recommend you buy your ticket for the festival as far in advance as you can.

Most of the festival takes place in the Parc del Fórum, located in Sant Adrià del Besós, but Primavera Sound also offers an additional program with concerts in the Raval and a selection of Barcelona clubs (Apolo, La  de Apolo and BARTS).
