2020 was supposed to mark the debut of Primavera Sound Los Angeles, an LA-based offshoot of the popular Spanish festival. However, for reasons that don’t need explaining, the event was pushed back to September 2021. It turns out the wait for Primavera Sound LA will again been lengthened, as organizers have announced that the festival has again been delayed, this time to September 16 to 18, 2022.
Yes, that’s three days, meaning the festival (set to be hosted at Los Angeles State Historic Park) has expanded from its previously planned two-day setup.
LA, we’re expanding our new festival to 3 days next year to bring you the full Primavera Sound experience. See you in 2022

In a statement, organizers said, “Despite the fact that the festival’s first encounter with its fans in the United States will have to wait yet another year, this announcement makes us even more excited and eager than ever to make our debut in America. […] We are working with renewed energy to bring the full Primavera Sound experience to Los Angeles. Until then, take care and see you in 2022.”
Fans who have tickets for the 2021 event can either use them for admission to the 2022 festival or request a refund (by July 29, 2021 at 9:30 a.m. PT).
