Primavera Sound 2019: the next best thing to not being there is streaming it on Radio Primavera Sound

Look, we’re not going to lie, nothing really rivals being at a festival – specially Primavera Sound, Barcelona. However, if you’re not there for this year’s edition they’re offering up the next best thing.

Radio Primavera Sound – which streams year-round not just during the festival – will be broadcasting live from the site at Parc del Fòrum. As part of that they’ll be playing out some of the weekend’s most notable performances from the festival’s four main stages. That means you can tune in to hear highlights of performances from the likes of:

Miley Cyrus
Mac DeMarco
Courtney Barnett
Jarvis Cocker
Kali Uchis
Nina Kraviz
Built To Spill
Big Thief
Primal Scream
Snail Mail
Little Simz

Listen via the Primavera Sound website, or download the app for IOS or Android.

The main programme of Primavera Sound 2019 begins tonight (Thursday 30 May), follow all of Loud And Quiet‘s coverage from the 19th edition.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
