Primavera Sound is unique in that they pair established headliners and festival performers with up-and-coming artists. They also have a great ear towards the music scene in Spain. One of the acts playing this year's festival, Aias, are an all-female three-piece from Barcelona who sing in Catalán. They were actually inspired to form a band after seeing the Vivian Girls at Primavera Sound a couple years back! You can listen to here, and check out many more select recordings from past Primavera Sound festivals as we look forward to Primavera 2011!
