The annual Primavera Sound Festival took place this May at Parc Del Forum in Barcelona, Spain. The festival's line-up is consistantly impressive, bringing together a mix of artists from across genres and generations.
These recordings wouldn't be possible without help from WFMU staffers who occupied the mosquito-infested double-wide broadcasting tent during the coldest Primavera festival yet. This includes WFMU's Liz Berg (you love her FMA podcasts and weekly mixes), Brian Turner (thank him for our recent live Mudhoney session), Scott Williams, Evan "Funk" Davies and Scott Konzelmann. You can explore the rest of the archived, streamable (non-downloadable) sets here and here.
All of these artist-approved live recordings are being offered under a Download Only License, which means they welcome you to listen but not remix or use in videos.

This year's Primavera Sound Festival is stocked yet again with amazing acts. The fest features trending artists including White Fence, Deerhunter, and Wild Nothing alongside epic rock influencers The Breeders, who will be playing their 1993 release Last Splash in full. The lineup offers a musical snapshot of past greats, while also featuring performers who recently have been garnering tons of attention.
One great place to check out the action captured at the fest is right here on the Free Music Archive, where many of this year's live sets will be recorded and posted. Check our collections from 2012 and 2011.
