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.

Support Loud And Quiet from £4 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 the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video 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 is a recurring payment of £4 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£7 per month) and the rest of the world (£9 per month).

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.
