New Yorkers ‘The Strokes’ are the first confirmed act for next year’s edition of Primavera Sound. The 2015 edition of Primavera sound will be the 15th edition and will be held between the 28th and the 30th of May at the Parc del Forum in Barcelona.

Official confirmation of the bands attendance came in a rather unusual ‘viral’ manner last Tuesday when a large canvas appeared on the Passeig del Born in Barcelona with the logo of the band, which come nightfall was illuminated by ultraviolet light that revealed the Primavera Sound logo.

Primavera Sound started in 2001, the same year as the Strokes debut album ‘ Is This It’ was released. The Strokes consist of New Yorkers Julian Casablancas , Albert Hammond Jr, Nikolae Fraiture , Nick Valensi and Fabrizio Moretti .
