Primavera Sound Los Angeles can be held September 19-20 on the Los Angeles State Historic Park. The new fest can be co-produced by Live Nation alongside the pageant’s administrators.
“We have been thinking about Los Angeles for many years now, and the celebration of our 20th anniversary felt like the perfect timing for the decision of crossing overseas,” stated co-director Gabi Ruiz in a press launch. “Our goal is to bring the Primavera Sound spirit and vibe to cities with a similar feel: creative, colourful and welcoming. And with this, to give something new to the city, to show a new side and new possibilities to be built and harvested together. So it’s a dream to finally say: yes, it had to be Los Angeles.”
