From the iconic Hollywood Palladium to the storied cutting-edge Echo to the uniquely LA Hollywood Forever Cemetery and the landmark Wiltern, Primavera is plugging itself into the venues and spaces that have soundtracked and shaped the sonic landscape of the city.

Artists taking part in these city shows will include New Orleans punk act Special Interest, ambient Canadian electronic producer Tim Hecker, French live performance extraordinaire Jehnny Beth, and a double booking featuring the Mexico City-based band Little Jesus and American/Colombian rock group Divino Niño. Next up are shows from the Nicolas Jaar and Dave Harrington project Darkside, experiential Swedish collective Drain Gang (Bladee, Thaiboy Digital Ecco2K, Whitearmor), and iconic avant-pop London band Stereolab. These will be rounded out by shows from Los Angeles R&B vocalist Giveon, award-winning Spanish singer and songwriter Bad Gyal, and Japanese rock band Chai.

The main festival lineup includes headliners Arctic Monkeys, Nine Inch Nails, and Lorde, along with James Blake, Mitski, Darkside, Clairo, Khruangbin, and over 50 more artists. This will take place from September 16-18 at L.A. State Historic State Park and will be the first US edition from the iconic festival, who just celebrated the 20th anniversary of their Barcelona edition.
