NOS Primavera Sound is the celebrated offshoot of Barcelona's world-famous indie giant. The majority of Primavera Sound's rock, pop and electro lineup heads over to Porto each year for a more intimate, more compact re-run on the Atlantic coast.

Marking its fifth birthday in 2016, NOS Primavera has been an unqualified success – huge names, great setting and that renowned focus on indie and up-and-comers. You'll find heroes past and present alongside rising stars, extending the Primavera party and soaking up the Portuguese summer sun.

Last year's headline sets from Patti Smith, Ride and Interpol were balanced out by the likes of Jungle, FKA Twigs and Run The Jewels. Expect the same high standard in 2016, and possibly some special surprises too…
