Spain’s independent music extravaganza — the Primavera Sound Music Festival — already hit a home run when it scored the reunited Pulp, Belle & Sebastain, and Grinderman. But today, the Barcelona-based festival added 67 more acts to its 2011 bill and, well, if we stick to baseball analogies, they’re now gunning for a no hitter.

For one, Primavera has brought Sufjan Stevens out of his long-perceived anti-music festival shell. They’ve also added the equally stellar likes of PJ Harvey, Interpol, Big Boi, Battles, Public Image, LTD, Simian Mobile Disco, of Montreal, and The Tallest Man on Earth.

Set to run from May 26-28, the festival will also feature Explosions in the Sky, Girl Talk, The Black Angels, The Monochrome Set, DJ Shadow, Kurt Vile, M. Ward, James Blake, Smith Westerns, Warpaint, Matthew Dear, Avi Buffalo, and Odd Future. Plus, London DJ Kode9 will play two sets, including one with the acclaimed Burial.

Festival passes are priced at 155 €, but will rise to 170 € on February 5th. Visit the festival’s website for complete details.
