“NOS Alive is deservedly one of the best European music festival” considered MTV Australia, or as The Times journal says “Think Glastonbury with guaranteed sun”. Indeed is one of the most recognized music festivals in Portugal and vastly respected in Europe and overseas.
Over the last years the festival, previously named Optimus Alive, has been responsible by a an impressive artists’ line-up. Names such as Muse, Bob Dylan, The Cure, James Bay, Altr-J, Artic Monckeys, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, along with electronic acts and DJs like Disclosure, The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers.
Set in the heart of Lisbon the festival has become synonymous with sun, sea, sand and exceptional musical programming. It’s the ultimate designation for lovers of music and culture.
The festival is located in the heart of Lisbon, a 5-minute drive from the capital’s beautiful historical landmarks and bustling nightlife. With some of Europe’s best beaches and surfing spots only 15 minutes away and temperatures reaching 30 degrees during the day, NOS Alive is very much a ‘beach by day, music by night’ destination festival.
This year, the program include names such as Radiohead, Arcade Fire, The Chemical Brothers, Pixies, Tame Impala, Band of Horses, among others.
