Pavement to headline European festival next summer

Stephen Malkmus and co to head up Primavera Sound

Pavement are set to headline the Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona next May.

The reuniting band will head up the event on May 27 – the first night of the three-day bash. The rest of the line-up is yet to be announced.

Stephen Malkmus and co had already announced three gigs at the London O2 Academy Brixton, set for May 11, 12 and 13. They will kick off their reunion gigs in Australia and New Zealand in March and will curate and headline the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in Minehead, UK in May.
