Barcelona festival Primavera Sound (cap. 35,000) is promoting an equal gender line-up for this year’s event.

Under the banner The New Normal, headliners include Solange, Tame Impala, Cardi B, J Balvin, Erykah Badu, Future, Janelle Monáe, Nas, and Rosalía.

“Primavera Sound is the holy grail for artistes and audiences when it comes to European festivals and we wholeheartedly support the balance of males and females on the bill this year,” says Jamie Stockwood, head of The Zeitgeist Agency in the UK, which has been engaged to promotes the festival’s values.

Primavera Sound takes place from 27 May to 2 June, with tickets priced from €150-€215 ($172-$246).
