Some of you will say it’s water under the bridge as we already told you this when we were still hungover from NYE. And you’re right, but now the confirmation is official. As Gabi Ruiz said on the festival blog, Ian McCulloch and his Echo & The Bunnymen will be playing at San Miguel Primavera Sound 2011. The Liverpudlians will give a special concert, playing classic material of their two first albums “Crocodiles” (Sire, 1980), the psychedelic debut, and “Heaven Up Here” (Sire, 1981), one of their darkest and most experimental records. Echo & The Bunnymen will play on Wednesday 25th May at Poble Espanyol, where they’ll be the most classic of the names playing on the day that Las Robertas and Nisennenmodai will be appearing. The opening session of the eleventh edition of San Miguel Primavera Sound will feature another of the great attractions of the festival, Dan Snaith and his band, Caribou. The makers of “Swim” (City Slang, 2010), one of the most lauded albums of 2010, will play at the festival twice. First, on Wednesday at the Poble Espanyol, and then a day later at the Parc del Fòrum, as part of the line-up curated by ATP.
From this Sunday 16th January tickets for San Miguel Primavera Sound 2011 will cost 155 € (+ booking fees) until Friday 4th February. From then on, they will be 170 € (+ booking fees). So if you want to save, you’d better get your tix now.
