Primavera Sound 2018: headliners are Björk, Arctic Monkeys, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, The National

That's how you do a festival bill

Never lets you down Primavera Sound, does it?

They’ve just announced the line-up for their 2018 edition. It all takes place 30 May – 2 June in Barcelona.

They don’t necessarily do ‘headliners’ but the acts in the primetime slots on the big stages include Bjork, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds, The National, Migos, Arctic Monkeys and Lorde.

Then – take a deep breath – the rest of the line-up includes the likes of Belle And Sebastian, Spiritualized, Vince Staples, The War On Drugs, Fever Ray, Chvrches, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Tyler, The Creator, Father John Misty, Arca, Breeders, Lykke Li…

We could go on, but, well the official poster is below.

Last year’s Primavera featured performances from Skepta, Arcade Fire, Grace Jones, Bon Iver and Solange.
