Sometimes it is hard to stay up to date with so many announcements by artists and festivals. Festileaks looks back at the best news of week 3 of the new year to catch up while drinking your Sunday coffee. Today, let’s take a look at Primavera Sound, Sónar, NOS Alive, INmusic and more.

1. Primavera Sound 2020 reveals line-up

On Wednesday evening, after several teases and clues, Pavement and Matador Records suddenly published the complete poster of Primavera Sound 2020 on their Facebook pages. Massive Attack, The National, Tyler, The Creator, Lana Del Rey and more will headline this edition. This announcement also marks the first European date for The Strokes in 2020.

Another announcement from NOS Alive in Portugal. London Grammar will perform on the Sagres Stage on 9 July. They will join Taylor Swift, alt-J, Parov Stelar, Seasick Steve, The Lumineers, Khalid and Inhaler on this day. Alec Benjamin will also play on the second stage but on the last day of festival.

3. Sónar 2020 announces full line-up

Sónar, Barcelona’s major electronic festival, reveals its complete line-up (at least that’s what they said). There are big names such as The Chemical Brothers, 2manydjs and Laurent Garnier, but also some gems -as usual- and other unexpected surprises such as Despacio (James Murphy + 2manydjs) and Nu Guinea live band.
