From Playboi Carti to PinkPantheress, dive into 10Trax of the best artists playing the CUPRA Stage this year at Primavera Sound.
With higher capacity and even higher-calibre acts than ever before, Primavera Sound is making a triumphant return to Barcelona this year.
Teaming up with renowned automotive brand CUPRA, together they have forged a partnership aiming to inspire the world – both by spotlighting the festival’s unique energy, and exploring new ways of experiencing music with the return of live events. The partnership aligns with the premiere of CUPRA’s first 100% electric model, CUPRA Born – an innovative design reflecting the forward-thinking spirit of Primavera Sound.
Held across 2nd-12th June with two key weekend lineups, the festival will bring fans together at Barcelona’s open-air Parc del Fòrum once again. The CUPRA stage is set to be a highlight, featuring artists ranging from rock to R&B, rap to electronic.
