After being announced for Firefly Festival in the US earlier this month, Arctic Monkeys have announced their first European date of 2018, headlining Barcelona’s Primavera Sound.
They’re joined at the fest - a consistent highlight of the festival calendar - by The National, Björk, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Lorde, Chvrches and loads, loads more.
The festival, which comes to the Spanish city’s Park Del Forum on the weekend of 31st May-2nd June, is also set to host Haim, The War On Drugs, Four Tet, Vince Staples, Beach House and countless others.
Belle & Sebastian, Spiritualized and more will open the festival with a special show on Wednesday 30th May.
