Primavera Sound 2013 is already shaping up to be one of the most vital festivals this summer, with celebrated UK heroes Blur announced as headliners for both editions, marking the only dates the band will play in those two countries this year. This will definitely be a completely unmissable event, as their performance at the Olympics Closing Ceremony Concert will attest to. The rest of the extensive lineup is sure to be just as thrilling - be sure to keep an eye on the Primavera Sound Youtube channel on January 23 for the much anticipated unveiling of the lineup:
