Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Primavera Sound 2015 closes out its 15th edition the same year The Strokes (11.45pm) are celebrating 15 years since their debut. The New York revival garage band headlines the last day at the Parc del Fòrum. Saturday's also the day you can see Interpol (5pm), one of the few bands that, along with The Strokes, have survived the wave of New York rock and post-punk that got going at the start of the last decade; irrisistable pianist and singer-songwriter Tori Amos (8.30pm) brings her latest album 'Unrepentant Geraldines' (2014) to the festival; the always anticipated Caribou (3am), who will present 'Our Love', another jewel of experimental psychedelia, liquid pop and hypnotic electronica; Germany's Einstürzende Neubauten (9.40pm), pioneers of experimentation and renegades of an avant-garde that they have shaken up from head to toe; California band Foxygen (9.10pm), presenting their celebrated latest album '... and Star Power', full of rock, pop and psychedlia; and Underworld (1.30am), part of living techno history and directly responsible for progressive house turning into a mass phenomena in the mid-1990s.
Find out who's playing on the opening day, which is free to everyone, on Wednesday 27, as well as the other official festival days, Thursday 28 and Friday 29.
