How to get to Primavera Sound Barcelona 2023
Getting to the festival terrain is much easier than you might expect… And that’s because the city offers many different public transport options to travel with. It is, therefore, easy to get to Primavera Sound from anywhere in the city. Below we will share with you our favorite options of means of transport:
Barcelona’s city bus system is excellent, and it will connect every part of the city with another. Bus lines 7, H16, 36, 41, 43 and 141 will take you closest to the entrance of Parc del Fòrum. Its operating hours are from 06:30 until approximately 23:15 hours. The night bus can also be a good idea, and you can hop on one of the closest stop of the N6 or N7 between 23:00 and 06:00.
Another option is Barcelona’s metro. This is probably the fastest and most efficient way to travel. Line 4 (the yellow line) stops at El Maresme-Fòrum, and the exit of this stop is only 150 meters from Parc del Fòrum. Timetable: from Monday to Thursday between 05:00 and 00:00 hours (so from five in the morning until midnight), and on Fridays and holidays between 05:00 and 02:00 hours. The service runs continuously on Saturdays.
Tram line T4 also stops close to the El Maresme-Fòrum metro station, and it operates from Sunday to Thursday between 05:00 and 00:00 hours. On Fridays and Saturdays you can travel between 05:00 and 02:00 hours.
Prefer taking a bike? Barcelona offers a rental bike service called Bicing. There are many stations where you can pick up a bicycle, and they operate from Monday to Friday between 05:00 and 02:00 hours. Saturdays and Sundays this service runs 24/7.
In any case, we advise you to plan your trip ahead to avoid arriving too late for your favorite artist or not being able to find a rental bike. And if you’re visiting Barcelona, don’t forget to enjoy all the city has to offer, not just Primavera Sound.
