Getting to the Primavera by bus: There is a regular bus service that runs from the Zona Universitaria to the Forum. However, this service begins at around 06:30 and ends at around 23:15.

Getting to the Primavera by Metro: El Maresme Fórum (Yellow Line, L4)

On Thursday evenings, the metro stops running at 00:00 midnight and starts again at 05:00 and on Friday night the metro stops running at 02:00 and starts again at 05:00. On Saturday there is a continuous service a whole night.

Also, you can get to the festival by Tram (T4 tram line) and Taxi or by foot. The Forum is at the Northernmost point of Barcelona’s long stretch of beach. So, you can walk to the Primavera by the Barceloneta beach promenade. It should take you around 60 minutes. Of course, it depends on how many beer pit-stops you will take! ☺

Where to eat during the Festival?

Inside the Forum you will find a whole area only for food – like an outdoor food market with a large selection of stalls selling everything from noodles to burgers. However, the prices there tend to much higher.

So, we advise you to get a fresh bread, jamón and cheese and enjoy your own fresh “bocadillo” at the sunset and with a great soundtrack. Or you can also try some great spots in Barcelona

Events Surrounding Primavera Sound

Primavera’s location – an outdoor area called the Parc del Fòrum. It is a large outdoor space with concrete floors and large auditorium areas – perfect to enjoy festival, music and atmosphere. There’s no living space at the Primavera, so you need to find accommodation elsewhere in Barcelona.

Put your good mood sunglasses and prepare to enjoy, for the Primavera Sound is coming!
