Portugal's most scenic festival

Taking place in the scenic countryside of Portugal's northwestern corner, Vodafone Paredes de Coura is a long-running and hugely popular alternative music festival.

Offering up performances from a lineup of bona fide superstars and exciting new names in the inviting summer sun, the festival strikes a perfect balance between big performances and an intimate atmosphere.

And it's the setting that plays a huge part in the festival's appeal, with the scenic woodland and riverbanks providing a perfect backdrop to the summer weekender.
