There are some festivals where you instantly feel at home, and NOS Alive, camped on the banks of the Tagus River is one of those. Being in Lisbon helps, being a relatively small site helps. Covering the whole thing in astroturf so there’s never any mud issues definitely helps. But none of these things are the reason we keep returning. There’s an indefinable atmosphere onsite which just makes it a really joyous place to be. When you’re there you’ll marvel at how brilliantly odd the line-up is: acts you’d never expect to share a bill somehow blend in together to form one of our very favourite, genre-defying, festivals on the planet. Obrigado, NOS Alive!

NOS Alive is from 11th – 13th July in Lisbon
