San Miguel Primavera Club will hold its sixth edition next November simultaneously in Madrid and Barcelona and, as usual, its extensive programme will take place in numerous venues.
The American folk formation Fleet Foxes, the masters of indie rock Superchunk and the mythical post punk band The Pop Group, who have recently reformed, are the first confirmations for the winter version of San Miguel Primavera Sound.
Joining them in the different venues of both cities will be the electro-indie of the Canadians Handsome Furs (with members of Wolf Parade), The Olivia Tremor Control, the formation that belongs to Elephant 6, Seth Haley’s lo-fi project Com Truise and the wild punk rock of the duo JEFF The Brotherhood, the prolific cult artist and godfather of lo-fi R. Stevie Moore, the hip hop of Shabazz Palaces (with the Digable Planets’ Ishmael Butler among their members), the presentation of the new album by John Maus, the return of the British band Factory Floor after their apocalyptic show at the San Miguel Primavera Sound 2011 and the Americans Girls with their sunny pop. New proposals will also visit the festival like the experimental pop of Braids and the dream pop of Puro Instinct, project that is backed by Ariel Pink.
The creator of the influential label Mo’Wax will be present with his project Unkle as James Lavelle presents: UNKLE – SOUNDS, his new show. The electronic music of the Finnish band Uusi Fantasia and a showcase by the influential American label Thrill Jockey and the agency Iron Booking, at which there will be concerts by Thank You, High Places and Barn Owl, complete this first batch of artists.
