FIRST CONFIRMATIONS FOR SAN MIGUEL PRIMAVERA SOUND 2011

San Miguel Primavera Sound is starting to reveal the line-up of its next edition with the announcement of the first ten confirmed artists. The festival is also going back to the Poble Espanyol, and will move to the mountain of Montjuïc to celebrate the opening and closing of its eleventh edition (25th and 29th May). The three central days (26th, 27th and 28th May) will take place as usual in the Parc del Fòrum.

Pop perfection with the lo-fi filter of Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, the conceptual indie rock of the duo of brothers The Fiery Furnaces, the political pop with hints of northern soul from David Feck’s band Comet Gain, the electronic conglomerate, 60’s psychedelia and retro-futurism of the British band Broadcast and the exclusive comeback of the cult indie band Half Japanese are amongst the most outstanding of the first batch of confirmations.

The Papas Fritas from Boston, who have been out of circulation for the last decade, are another band making an unexpected comeback. Sonny & The Sunsets, a project of Sonny Smith’s with members of Thee Oh Sees and The Fresh & Onlys, will join them, as well as the electronic post punk of Mike Sniper fronting Blank Dogs, the lo-fi garage by the prolific Dan Melchior together with Das Menace and the wall of sound of the Galician Triángulo De Amor Bizarro.
