A rural Portuguese gem
EDP Vilar de Mouros is an alternative music festival held annually in the eponymous Portuguese parish.
Situated on the banks of the Coura river in the very north of the country, kilometres from the border with Spain, the festival has a rich history that stretches all the way back to the 1960s.
And despite not having been an annual fixture throughout the last half century, there has nonetheless been no shortage of music icons who have appeared at the festival over the years.
What has remained constant is the festival's commitment to showcasing not just established and celebrated talent, but also finding space on the lineup for emerging and exciting new talent from across the globe.
