NOS Alive is an open-air rock, indie and pop festival in the Portuguese capital Lisbon. Mixing world-famous names and underground talent, previous editions have featured the likes of Radiohead, alt-J and James Blake.
Set on the sun-drenched coast, festival-goers spend their days lapping up the sun or taking a dip in the Tagus river, before the main lineup kick starts a night of full-throttle partying that doesn't stop till the early morning.
Also just 10 minutes away from some of Europe's best beaches and surfing spots, NOS Alive has become one of the continent's best loved summer music festivals.
Slap bang on the Tajo river bank and just west of Lisbon, NOS Alive's home since its 2007 inception is the perfect urban/country setting.
