    Primavera Sound Los Angeles 2022

    Primavera in association with Live Nation will now debut the U.S. version of this established European music festival September 16-18, 2022 at L.A. State Historic Park. This comes a couple years after the initial Primavera Sound L.A. was postponed due to the COVID pandemic. After a long wait, the lineup will finally be announced Monday, December 6.

    Primavera put out this video. Besides the lineup announcement, three new PS international destinations will be announced on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. There will be some additions to the PS Porto and Barcelona lineups announced on Friday and Monday of next week, respectively, as well.

    Here is the first batch of artists...59 in all:

    They have some nice gets like Stereolab, Dry Cleaning, Fontaines D.C., Mitski, and of course NIN. I think I like the TANP overall lineup better. There's of course more to come.

    All tickets previously purchased for the 2020 edition can be used for 2022, which is definitely a bargain since new GA tickets are priced at $399 plus fees...ouch! There will be a presale at 10 a.m. PST this Friday, December 10. Advance registration is required at https://www.primaverasound.la. A general onsale begins at 2 p.m. PST that day for the remaining inventory.

    According to the PSLA website, there will be four stages with 75+ artists performing over the three days. There are also age restrictions: 18+ for GA and 21+ for VIP.

      Really glad I kept my passes for this. I would probably pass if I had to pay $399 but this isn't too bad for $149.

        Yeah, and it's also good for entry to the shows leading up to the festival as part of Primavera in the City, which will take place September 12-15.

          Hate to say it, but this is pretty disappointing - especially after having to wait over two years for a lineup announcement (even if it's just an initial drop).

          Hoping that they dropped this prematurely because they wanted to get ahead of This Ain't No Picnic and will have a lot of additions. Because as is, there are only about seven acts I would definitely be interested in seeing. This Ain't No Picnic has about twice that in fewer days and for less money (although I guess I can't make that latter claim since I bought a Primavera ticket in 2019 for something like $183 with fees). If anything, this announcement is convincing me I need to buy a pass for This Aint No Picnic, and be prepared to sell my Primavera ticket if it doesn't improve.

          Still though, this is an interesting lineup. Arctic Monkeys feels like a lazy booking, but I'll let NIN offset that. I'm dying to know if they booked Lorde before Solar Power. Lots of impressive gets in the undercard, although nothing I'm terribly excited for outside of Squid and Stereolab.

            Rumor has it that they initially planned to announce the lineup in February. so definitely seems like TANP forced their hand.

            I'm let down too, but waiting 2 years for a lineup was always going to set up for a disappointment. hopefully those late adds are exciting.

                Looking over the lineup again, it's actually pretty decent; but it does seem to be below expectations when compared to the phenomenal PS Barcelona 2022 slate. It also feels anticlimactic after the This Ain't No Picnic lineup release last week. Moreover, the initial price point for three-day GA tickets is way too high. It's nearly at Coachella levels but with less than half of the amount of acts that will ultimately be booked. Three-day GA passes for Shaky Knees--another four-stage festival with Live Nation's backing--are just half the price for a better overall quality lineup IMO that shares NIN as a headliner as well as Khruangbin and Faye Webster. I realize that the cost of putting on an event in Atlanta is cheaper than L.A., but still. I do though give Primavera credit for staying on brand by emphasizing gender equality among the performers and sustainability practices.

                I'm hoping Stereolab's appearance means that they plan to do a full NA tour.

                  So on the Front Gate Tickets purchase page, it states that the $399 (plus fees) three-day GA passes are at Tier 1 pricing. Then it jumps to $425 for Tier 2 and $450 for Tier 3. I seriously doubt many people are going to pay close to $500 when factoring in the fees for this particular lineup as it stands right now. They undoubtedly will have to be selling single-day tickets to this festival at some point next year.

                    I agree. If not for the fact that I purchased three passes to this back in 2019 (at ~$180/pass), I would have probably bought TANP tickets. (Two trips to LA from Edmonton in 3 weeks is s bot hard to justify.)

                      Yeah, no way this lineup is worth that much. But for all we know, it could be once they've announced the full lineup.

                        None of the announced Primavera L.A. acts so far overlap with the Coachella 2022 lineup.
