Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
The Parc del Fórum is the place to be yet again for the kick-off to Primavera Sound with a series of free concerts to get you in the mood for the three music-packed days to follow. The headliners of Wednesday's free day are Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) (10.25pm-11.25pm), the legendary British duo of Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys, pioneers of synth-pop and authors of big hits 'Enola Gay', 'Electricity', 'Souvenir' and 'Messages'. Also taking the stage are Albert Hammond Jr (9.15pm-10pm), The Strokes guitarist who goes it alone to explore less controlled ranges of pop; David Gedge reactivating his project in parallel with The Weding Present, the more pop Cinerama (8.10pm-8.55pm); Madrid's Christina Rosenvinge (7pm-7.45pm), icon of indie pop and self-penned songs full of disillusionmnet and maturity, who will present her latest algum; the mix of soul and pop from Australians Panama (5.55pm-6.35pm); and the energetic and humourous punk-pop from Barcelona's own Las Ruinas (5pm-5.35pm).
Find out who's playing on the official festival days, Thursday 28, Friday 29 and Saturday 30.
