Inaugural Primavera Sound Los Angeles detailed

Arctic Monkeys, Nine Inch Nails and Lorde headline the first batch of 59 confirmations

Live Nation has announced 59 acts that will appear at the inaugural Primavera Sound Los Angeles in September 2022. Arctic Monkeys, Nine Inch Nails and Lorde will headline the three day festival at LA State Historic Park from September 16-18th.

There will be four days of shows around the city followed by the inaugural three day festival. Kilometers matter little when the same musical language is spoken and Los Angeles and Barcelona will be united for three days by a line-up worthy of Primavera Sound. Coherent and daring at the same time, full of surprises but connected in every detail with the spirit that has made Primavera Sound what it is today.

The lineup also includes James Blake, the triumphant come back of Mitski, the rupturism of Arca, the groove nomads Khruangbin, the house muscle of BICEP, the brilliant maturity of Clairo, the resuscitated Darkside, the darkness of King Krule or Low.

A route through today’s most exciting sounds that, for the moment, consists of 59 stops, as many as the number of artists confirmed in this first batch of names. From the labyrinths of Stereolab to the miniature hits by PinkPantheress, from the eternal icon Kim Gordon to the revelation Mustafa and his soul poetry and the sharp guitars of Fontaines D.C., from the queen of techno Helena Hauff to the patron saint of reggaeton DJ Playero, from the roar of Special Interest to the whisper of Cigarettes After Sex, from Tierra Whack’s signature rap to Dry Cleaning’s new post-punk, from the icey riffs of Mayhem to the pop with Latin roots by Paloma Mami, from the Mexicans Little Jesus and the Puerto Ricans Buscabulla to the ambassadors of the Spanish scene Bad Gyal, Derby Motoreta’s Burrito Kachimba, María José Llergo, Marina Herlop and John Talabot: in short, the journey to Los Angeles can be made by following an infinite number of musical itineraries that will soon be extended with the rest of the artists on a line-up that is already heading towards equality. A non-negotiable commitment for Primavera Sound in its search for a fairer music industry.
