Summer festivals in Spain: from Metallica to Stromae, passing through Muse, Primal Scream, Pixies or C. Tangana

After two years with the material impossibility of recovering festival sensations in large spaces, the great national events of popular music return to summer with enthusiasm, although one should not jump to the season of great heat without first remembering the spring trills, that there are and more. The Viñarock of Villarrobledo (Albacete), a classic in the calendar of the most battle-hardened rock and rap, arrives at the end of the month, and in May Madrid’s Tomavistas stands out with Suede, Kings of Convenience, Jungle or Carolina Durante.

From June 2 to 11, the great Barcelona festival of the multicolored sound scene returns, Primavera Sound. The other giant of Barcelona, ​​electronic music and rapper, returns on the verge of summer, between June 15 and 18: Sónar, the same weekend as O Son do Camiño in Galicia and another member of the national festival nobility, the Vitorian Azkena Rock.

In Primavera, the scheme of the end returns, the accumulation of great names of all styles: The Strokes, Tame Impala, Tyler The Creator, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Gorillaz, Pavement, Massive Attack, Jorja Smith, The National, Beck, Dua Lipa or Interpol. The Chemical Brothers, Arca, Princess Nokia or La Fleur get on the Sónar boat, while they also go to the top with Kase.O Jazz Magnetism, The Chemical Brothers, C. Tangana, Foals, Liam Gallagher, Justice, Editors, Tïesto, Nathy Peluso or Rigoberta Bandini, and their majesties Patti Smith, Emmylou Harris, Suzi Quatro or Brian Wilson will parade through the Azkena (which turns 20), as well as The Offspring, L7, Reverend Horton Heat (let us pray!) and the great Shooter Jennings, who gave an unforgettable concert a few years ago at La Casa del Loco.

And when summer comes…

The event that unites continents with the Castilian language as mortar, Río Babel, is the first touchstone in the national summer in the passage from June to July with C. Tangana (it must be remembered that he comes to Zaragoza on April 29) in the program, and Molotov as the most notorious representative of the American continent. The following weekend comes the always excessive Mad Cool with Metallica, Muse and Queens of The Stone Age as the main flashy trio, and one more year they coincide in dates with the Bilbao conspiracy of Kobetamendi, the BBK Live, which has in the Belgian genius Stromae its main luminary together with the veteran PetShop Boys, the Colombian duo (of very diverse fur , yes) formed by Balvin and Bomba Estéreo or the wild MIA

The traditional walk along the Valencian beaches, which began this week with the Sansan, has Bobby Gillespie’s Low and Primal Scream as its great magnet, along with some who say goodbye to the stage indefinitely, Izal. In the Arenal there is a clear commitment to trap, reggaeton and the urban wave: C. Tangana will not be missing on those arenas, nor will the dancer and singer (in that order: lofty in the first, fairer in the second) Lola Índigo . Also joining the party is Omar Montes, who stole hearts a few days ago in Zaragoza,

border crossing

Most of the artists present in two of the most attractive proposals in Portugal (Nos Alive, Lisbon) and France (Eurockrennes, Belfort) are already on some Spanish poster this year, but the traveling experience combined with first-rate artists maximizes the attractions of the Portuguese capital (the caresses of the sea and Pessoa’s verses with little fish and fado) and the aroma of Burgundy, not far from Switzerland and Germany. In Lisbon there are Metallica, The War on Drugs or St. Vincent, and in the French town, Nick Cave and, again, Stromae.
