Eclectic, all-night partying
NOS Alive (formerly Optimus Alive) is an open-air rock, indie and pop festival in Lisbon. Musically diverse lineups include world-famous artists each year, with stunning riverside views and summer sun guaranteed.
Lisbon is one of Europe's most culturally rich cities, and NOS Alive can revel in the close proximity of great beaches and even better surf. The music starts in the evening and continues long into the the following morning, making the relax-by-day and party-all-night lifestyle an unmissable attraction for tens of thousands each year.
Meanwhile, festival stages graced by the likes of Mumford & Sons, The Prodigy, Muse and alt-J add a star-studded gloss to the whole weekend.
Immediately west of Lisbon and snug against the Tajo river, NOS Alive's open-air location is the best of both urban and countryside settings. Easily accessible and yet not a city-centre venue, the site has hosted NOS Alive since its inception in 2007.
