The Barcelona-based music festival, Primavera Sound, will be entering its 15th year of existence next year, having started up in 2001. So it's a fitting choice to be announcing The Strokes first for the festival's line-up; they released their debut album Is This It in the same year – they "exploded" (to use a modern term) and their breed of guitar music, along with that of many other garage-rock exponents from both sides of the Atlantic, influenced the way a lot of bands sounded over this millennium's first decade, and probably beyond.

Taking place from 28th to 30th May 2015, find out more about buying tickets for the festival here.
