Music festivals: are you ready?

Summer in Portugal means 3 things: sun, sea and music festivals! Season 2017 starts these week with NOS Alive and spreads until September. There are music festivals for every taste, from indie to metal, from north to south of the country, depending of your tribe and the destination you choose.

You will find music to dance in the middle of the city, in Lisbon, to music festivals in the woods, in the north of the country, in Paredes de Coura, where you can swim in the river during the day and listen to Benjamin Clementine at night. Take a look at the schedule from July to September.
