ommemorating the starting date of what should have been Primavera Sound Barcelona 2020, the festival publicly launches PS Life, a new audiovisual streaming platform. Conceived as a virtual window onto the world of music through live concerts, videos of historical performances, listening parties, live radio programmes or meetings with artists and other fans among many other proposals, PS Life is a virtual meeting point for times when music fans can’t get together in the usual places.
The platform is presented as a community under construction, still in the beta phase, which has already hosted some pilot tests and will be released to the general public today, Wednesday, June 3rd at 7:00 pm CET with a listening party of the new album by Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever, Sideways to New Italy, with the participation of the band. From tomorrow until Saturday, it will be the turn of the #RelivePrimavera special, during which historical concerts from past editions of Primavera Sound will be broadcast, such as Blur (2013), Swans (2013) or Sharon Van Etten (2014), in addition to another listening party with Hinds with their third album The Prettiest Curse, followed by a virtual meet & greet. The end of the party will be a rocking session by DJ Coco himself streamed for the first time live from the 2015 edition of the festival.
This special edition of #RelivePrimavera on www.onps.life
will run until Saturday, June 6th with five hours a day of uninterrupted broadcasting. Access is completely free and, in addition to streaming, users will have public and private chats in which to comment on everything that is going on.
Come in, listen and watch: welcome to PS Life.
