Surprising news for the weekend – Gabi Ruiz, Primavera Sound co-director had an exciting announcement on his Twitter account:
For those who don’t speak Spanish or don’t have an easy access to Google Translate – as the headline suggests, the next headliner for the 2014 edition will be announced on next Monday on the Primavera Sound Touring Party reality show.
At the moment we have two main speculations based on previous rumors:
1. Nine Inch Nails – the most likely option. They have never been to Primavera Sound festival, they are big enough to fit the headliner slot and at the top of it – The Primavera Sound Touring Party last video contains a huge hint regarding the band.
2. The Pixies – The Pixies just had been confirmed to Field Day Festival in London, which makes it very likely to see them in Primavera as well (every year about 1/3 of Field day lineup shares the same artists as Primavera Sound).
The odds we’ll see The Pixies in Barcelona is high, the only question to be asked is if as a headliner or not. First, The Pixies had already headlined Primavera sound back in 2010. Second, Kim Deal just left the band a few month ago, which means this is not their finest hour. Having said that, we would really like to see The Pixies on the next edition’s bill, with Kim or without Kim.
