How about enjoying a great music festival while home exchanging in Barcelona? It?s time to celebrate spring with music! For over a decade, The Primavera Sound transforms the city, for a few days, in the capital of indie music. The festival has already hosted concerts from Pixies, Neil Young, Sonic Youth, Pulp, Patti Smith, Arcade Fire, and so on.

In 2013, the festival will take over the city between May 22nd and 26th, with the main shows happening in Parc del Forum, the 167.000 square meters paved with colored asphalt seaside park, which whips concrete and trees from the land.

In this year?s lineup, there are over 100 artists from all over the world. Among them, Fiona Apple, The Vaccines, Grizzly Bears and Blur (yes, the band is coming to Barcelona on its big reunion tour!). The whole program can be seen here.

Primavera Sound also makes a stop in Portugal, for the second consecutive year, Porto hosts the Optimus Primavera Sound, which takes place May 30th and June 1st, at Parque da Cidade. In the Portuguese lineup, some of the attractions from Barcelona will also perform.
