Primavera Sound

OPTIMUS ALIVE!, Lisbon, Portugal, 13-15 Jul: After emerging as the most-requested performers in a poll undertaken by this Portuguese festival, Radiohead are the lead booking confirmed for this weekender. More acts to be announced shortly.

PRIMAVERA SOUND, Parc del Forum, Barcelona, Spain, 30 May-30 Jun: Acts including Death In Vegas, Wilco, Mudhoney, SBTRKT, The Drums and Washed Out are amongst the latest raft added to next year’s Primavera array. The existing bill boasts Björk, Guided By Voices, Jeff Mangum, Neon Indian and Yo La Tengo.

ROSKILDE, Denmark, 5-8 Jul: Leading the Roskilde line-up from the front is 2012 headliner Björk, who’s so far its first and only resident. Festival-goers can expect to see her performing songs from her new album ‘Biophilia’, and presumably, wearing that big orange wig. Say organisers of securing Björk for the Danish bash: “We kick off the new festival season with a true ‘Roskilde act’. One of the most distinct profiles and an always surprising musician”.
