Part of the revered festival family
NOS Primavera Sound is the Portuguese younger sibling of Spain's beloved alternative music festival, held each summer in the city of Porto.
Drawing from the same pool of artists as the flagship Barcelona event, the festival invites the acts to perform in a to a more stripped back, intimate setting – the country's largest urban park.
Straddling between city and sea, NOS Primavera Sound's blissful retreat is the perfect antidote for those who want the musical taste of Primavera Sound, but don't fancy the concrete of Barcelona's Parc del Fòrum.
Porto's Parque da Cidade is Portugal's largest urban park, and has been the home to NOS Primavera Sound since its beginning back in 2012.
