Internationalising Catalan music at Primavera Pro
Internationalising Catalan music at Primavera Pro

A total of 29 Catalan artists will take to the stages at Barcelona's Primavera Sound from 29 May to 3 June. A programme featuring a broad range of styles from well-established artists and acts new on the scene. Primavera Sound and its industry meeting, Primavera Pro, give artists a unique opportunity to be heard by local and international audiences.

The ICEC is back to bet on Primavera Pro as a key platform for the visibility of the music industry in Catalonia. With this objective and under its Catalan Arts - Music internationalization brand, various actions will be organized such as the traditional welcome botifarrada, the meeting with the international press or the guide edition of Catalan artists that will be distributed to all attending professionals.

Networking session and welcome botifarrada

Catalan Arts Music will welcome all accredited professionals in Primavera Pro with the traditional botifarrada that will take place on Wednseday, May 30 at 1:30 pm in the CCCB’s Pati de les Dones. This wants to be a meeting that offers Catalan professionals the opportunity to network with those accredited at Primavera Pro, which last year exceeded 3.300 (half of them international).

During the botifarrada three promising emerging Catalan bands of the Primavera line-up will offer showcases. This year we will listen the hypnotic R’n’B of the duo North State,the expansive surf of the Barcelona quartet with Chilean roots The Zephyr Bones, and the synthetic textures that surround the pop heart of the Uruguayan established in Barcelona Marion Harper.

Exclusive session for the International press

For the third year running, the Catalan groups will be presented to the international press in an exclusive session organized by the Catalan Institute of Catalan Companies (ICEC) through its internationalizing brand Catalan Arts-Music. The session is aimed exclusively at international journalists accredited to Primavera Pro with the aim of offering an introduction to the Catalan scene and presenting the latest news in the field of independent music.

Catalan artists directory and other promotional material

To further promote the Catalan groups and artists that will be performing at this year’s Primavera Sound, Catalan Arts - Music has published a directory of Catalan artists on the festival line-up. Copies of the directory will be in the goody bags handed out to accredited professionals at Primavera Pro and will also be available in the professional areas.

You can also listen the artists who will play at Primavera Sound through playlists on Spotify and Apple Music.

Finally, there will be further promotion of the Catalan music industry in the social media (@playcatalan on twitter and catalanarts on Facebook) and in the Catalan Arts newsletters.
