Sound System at Primavera Sound Festival 2016

For the third year running Primavera Sound invited Sound System to be part of the world’s most discerning music festival. Fifty-two hours, forty-two artists and an incredible quality of sound once again provided festival-goers with an immense sonic experience.

We pride ourselves on working with some of the best DJs, musicians and producers around and this year was no different: from US hardcore pioneer Bob Mould to a storming set from disco king Todd Terje, UK innovator Floating Points to club stalwart Trevor Jackson.

Barcelona / US house star Maceo Plex returned for a second year in a row and summed up his experience for us:

“Most of the stuff I make I wish people could hear it the way I heard it. Hear all the frequencies I worked on to get it perfect. Most of the Sound systems I’ve played on the beach are very one directional. This was nice because it was enclosed, it enveloped the people. I wish there was more of this.”

As the sun rose on Sunday morning, Barcelona’s own DJ and Hivern Discs boss John Talabot played a surprise DJ set, for the third year running in what’s quickly becoming a legendary occasion.
Roll on 2017.
