It’s official, the European festivals are well and truly bewildering this year. From Primavera Sound hosting Radiohead and Arcade Fire, and BBK Bilbao nabbing Depeche Mode, The Killers, and The 1975, this lot are really giving Glastonbury & Reading and Leeds a run for their money!
Joining them, is arguably one of the best festivals in the world, the Portuguese weekender NOS Alive. After celebrating its 10th anniversary last year with a stellar line up, 2017’s hoard follows suit. Just announced is the legendary French pop outfit Phoenix, who will rally up next to headliners Foo Fighters, The Weeknd, Depeche Mode and The xx.
Other acts slotted in over what’s set to be a scorching weekend in July include Alt-J, Kodaline, Imagine Dragons, and Wild Beasts. NOS Alive takes place 6th – 8th July in Lisbon, Portugal. More information, and tickets starting from £56, are available from the NOS Alive website.
