Barcelona's Primavera Sound Festival unveiled its best-ever lineup last month: Blur, the Postal Service, My Bloody Valentine, Wu-Tang Clan, the Breeders, and Grizzly Bear were just some of the artists confirmed. Now, Barcelona's companion Primavera fest, held in Porto, Portugal, has revealed its similarly drool-inducing roster.

Scheduled to play Portugal's Optimus Primavera Sound Festival (from May 30 to June 1): Blur, My Bloody Valentine, the Breeders (performing Last Splash), Grizzly Bear, Swans, Deerhunter, Fucked Up, James Blake, Dinosaur Jr., METZ, Dan Deacon, Daniel Johnston, Daughn Gibson, Dead Can Dance, Dear Telephone, Degreaser, Do Make Say Think, Explosions in the Sky, FIDLAR, Four Tet, Foxygen, Fuck Buttons, Glass Candy, Hot Snakes, Liars, Local Natives, Meat Puppets, Neko Case, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Savages, Titus Andronicus, Wild Nothing, and more.

Portugal may not have Phoenix, Wu-Tang Clan, Fiona Apple, or the Knife, but that lineup is still strong enough to justify the cost of a plane ticket. For the full list of booked acts, head over to the festival's website. As previously reported, the Barcelona Primavera Sound Festival is set for May 22 to 26.
