The Primavera Sound Festival has recently announced a series of free live shows as a warm up the main festival. These pre-festival shows will include performances by Suede and The Black Lips.
Primavera Sound, which runs from June 1st–5th in Barcelona, Spain, has announced Primavera Al Raval, a series of 70+ free gigs and concert events at various locations during the week leading up to the main event.
The lineup for Primavera Al Raval is pretty impressive to say the least.

A press release from Primavera stated that not only will Radiohead be performing at the festival, but that the headliners will perform the band’s soon to be released follow-up to 2011’s The King of Limbs.
