You might as well start looking for flights on Kayak
We’ve had to give up a lot of our hobbies over the past year, especially one of our favorite, time-wasting, centuries-old practices: hopping on the kayak and checking the price of flights to random, remote places. that we ” I will probably never visit. The pandemic really didn’t stop our ability to travel, it took away the dreamlike fantasy of traveling that many of us used to carry through the day. But hey, those skills in late night kayaking research might come in handy soon, because Primavera Sound unveiled its 2022 festival lineup, and suddenly we’re in the market for a cheap ass flight to Barcelona.
This might be the first festival to get a collective “oh shit” from everyone on Twitter, because the lineup is pretty sexy. There will be two weekends in June next year: Massive Attack, Lorde, The Strokes, Tame Impala, Jorja Smith, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Dua Lipa, Big Thief, Interpol, Gorillaz, Pavement, Tyler, The Creator, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Megan Thee Stallion, Charli XCX, Beck, Bikini Kill, MIA, Dinosaur Jr., The National, Caroline Polachek, Beach House, Run The Jewels, Sky Ferreira, Pile, Sharon Van Etten, Fontaines DC, Jessie Ware, Girl in Red, The Magnetic Fields, The Jesus And Mary Chain, IDLES, Slowdive, Brockhampton, Disclosure, Courtney Barnett, Bauhaus, Dry Cleaning, DIIV, Boy Harsher, Molchat Doma, Japanese Breakfast… and so on. Seems pretty gender balanced as well, and we love to see that.
Check out the double posters and promotional video (which looks like an advertisement for a car) below for the full lineup, which spans 11 days and some 500 performances, and look for your favorite band. It’s almost as much fun as searching Kayak for flights to anywhere.
