The festival's official USA radio partner has been carrying full on live sets live from sunny Spain that in the past have included Pavement, Sonic Youth, Liquid Liquid, Marc Almond, Mission of Burma, Yo La Tengo, Sunn o))), the Vaselines and many more, with some of the archives available online and the FMA! This year's broadcasts happen from 3pm to Midnight ET both days, with the schedule TBA, but take a look at this year's incredible lineup, and a listen to the Free Music Archive's Primavera 2011 Preview Mix (below).
If you are doing up a rockcation at Prima, please stop by the WFMU tent in the main fairway to the stages, say hello to Liz Berg, Scott Williams, Brian Turner, and Jason Sigal who will be manning the broadcast and recording the sets throughout the stages (the festival starts on Thursday the 26th, but we will be starting broadcast with some backlogged sets the following day). It will be hard to beat the 6am sunrise dance party that we involuntarily hosted last year, but many magical musical moments are certainly on the horizon for attendees and FMU listeners alike at Primavera 2011.
