Barcelona, Spain -- Arcade Fire have been confirmed as the first headliner for Primavera Sound 2014 to be held in Barcelona, Spain.

Our favorite Canadian exports (sorry Justin Bieber) will perform at the festival set to take place May 29-31 at Parc del Forum in Barcelona. They'll be sure to play tracks from the recently released Reflektor, the new album for which they created pre-release buzz with two last minute shows in a Bushwick warehouse and an appearance on Saturday Night Live.

Although Pitchfork, who will be curating a stage, reports it'll be Arcade Fire's only 2014 date in Spain, they'll be in the UK later this month performing under the name "The Reflektors."

Three advance tiers have already sold out for next year's festival, but tickets are now on sale for 160 €. After January 7, the price will be bumped up to 175 € and then again to 195 € once the lineup has been presented in full.
