A couple of weeks ago, the Primavera Sound team said on the festival’s message board that today, the second Monday of November, they’d drop one of the big names already confirmed for the festival’s next edition. That announcement unleashed all kinds of rumours, due, above all, to a line saying the news would become headline news in specialized media around the world. A few days later, they added that waiting until 8th November to drop the news had been imposed by the band themselves and that they had no other choice than to abide by the terms set by… Pulp!
It’s just been confirmed: after nine long years of inactivity, the mythical British band led by Jarvis Cocker has decided to get back up onstage, choosing the San Miguel Primavera Sound festival as the scenario for their comeback. Pulp will return with the original line-up (Nick Banks, Jarvis Cocker, Candida Doyle, Steve Mackey, Russell Senior and Mark Webber) and will play songs from all their albums, appearing on 27th May.
