According to the organization, this additional cycle will mean "the definitive celebration of the return to Barcelona's concert halls", as well as "a tribute to club culture in all its forms and aspects, reactivated as a key ecosystem for musical life and social of any city". In this way, the festival has its own headliners, which the public will be able to see up close in concert halls. Some of them are Megan Thee Stallion, Beck, soul star Jorja Smith or Interpol.
The fact that Poble Espanyol is the scene of some of the performances also means a symbolic return of Primavera to this venue, since it is where the first four editions of the festival were held, between 2001 and 2004. The Linda Lindas, Wet Leg, Teto Preto, Rina Sawayama or Little Simz are some of the direct performers that will pass through the rooms of Poble Espanyol.
