Time Out says

It's time for the most ambitious year of Primavera Sound yet, which kicks off with a line-up full of big names. Among them, highlights include the return (after their brief separation) of James Murphy with his most successful project, LCD Soundsystem, who promise a new album for 2016; Australian band Tame Impala, bringing it big-time with the new psychedelia and one of the best albums of 2015, 'Currents'; Air, everyone's favourite French duo who are back as ambassadors of pop elegance, French touch, and subtle electronica; Texas band Explosions in the Sky with their contemporary instrumental rock; Vince Staples, a 22-year-old California native who's hot in the world of current hip hop; John Carpenter, who you know as a master of horror films, taking the stage to show his musical side and perform from soundtracks of his movies as well as his dark 2015 album, 'Lost Themes'; Suede are up again, so don't miss them this time; cosmic jazz from saxophone player Kamasi Washington; Texan Alan Palomo, one of the busiest talents on today's electronica scene at the helm of his Neon Indian; London trio Daughter with their noisy pop; Battles from New York and their experimental sound; frontman Dan Bejar's can't-miss act Destroyer, with their 'Poison Season' (2015), an album where they put their own spin on classic 1970s romanticism; the fiery mix from the trio Algiers; and the great country-folk and delicate psychedelia of Cass McCombs. Also recommended to check out on the first day of the festival are: the darkness of Asturians Fasenuova, the psychedelic light of Alberto Montero and synth band Holögrama.
