The music festival and the carmaker have signed an agreement whereby SEAT becomes a strategic partner, a move that takes it a step further in its commitment to music and as a way to Connect with the public and open up to new experiences.

This collaboration will contribute to expanding the philosophy of Primavera Sound to new markets, to those who share our passion for music with premium proposals and content which will surely further enrich the experience of audiences attending our national and international events”.
Primavera Sound is a leading cultural festival that drew more than 200,000 spectators last year. The 2018 edition, which is taking place from 30 May to 3 June, will again turn Barcelona into a music capital with a marathon of performances staged at several venues around the city.

The Primavera Sound line-up includes major stars that draw audiences of all ages, as well as emerging artists that transcend familiar genres (pop, rock, indie, hip hop, electronic, R&B, heavy metal…). Through this alliance with Primavera Sound, SEAT strengthens its commitment to music and its ties with its hometown, Barcelona, where the carmaker also participates at world-level events such as the Mobile World Congress or the Smart City Congress.
