WFMU Returns to Primavera Sound in Barcelona May 27-29
(Ariel Pink photo via Liz Berg) WFMU ushers in summer with a return to the fabulousPrimavera Sound festival at Parc Del Forum in Barcelona, Spain from May 27th-29th! We're stoked beyond belief to have been invited once again to set up our remote gear splat in the middle of multiple stages for what's surely one of Europe's best large scale music fests. If you recall, our stint last year brought full broadcast sets from Sonic Youth, the Vaselines, Fucked Up, th' Faith Healers, Sunn o))), Crystal Stilts, Vivian Girls, the Bats, St. Etienne, Spectrum, Yo La Tengo, and tons more, many archived for streaming on WFMU's site, and some even for download on the Free Music Archive (check out some pix from WFMU's Flickr group from 2009 as well). This year's lineup once again resembles a who's who of WFMU Heavy Airplay past and present (Wire, Sic Alps, Seefeel, the Clean, New Pornographers, Diplo, the Fall, Pavement, Condo Fucks, Orbital, King Khan, Thee OhSees, Lee Perry, Liquid Liquid, Mission of Burma, Endless Boogie, Psychic Paramount to name just a sliver!) and while permissions haven't been finalized, we'll be keeping you informed of what will be going out over the air/netwaves in due time. From the point of view of an attendee, Primavera squarely lands the perfect wedding of visionary, multi-genre booking in a large forum, artists who don't always get the chance to play non-club environs getting a huge audience, and few instances of on-site claustrophobia since this place is literally spread out over a huge waterfront area. We're looking forward to working with the festival once again and bringing you full sets of as much of the lineup as we can. Stay tuned for more details, and we'll keep you updated on WFMU's site, Twitter, and Facebook when we get down to specific broadcast times and artists. Hope you can tune in!
