DATA: 07 - 09 June 2018
PLACE: Porto, Portugal
Born from a rib of the Primavera Sound Barcelona, il Nos Primavera Sound Porto has now become one of the landmark events in the Lusitanian landscape.
Three days of atmosphere and fun under the banner of rock, pop and electronic music. The Lusitanian Festival seems to have shrugged off the initial label of second-tier event. The merit is due to the rich billboard, with international names that alternate with emerging artists, and numerous special initiatives. More intimate atmospheres than the Iberian elder brother.
The Nos Primavera Sound Port 2018 comes, this year, to its VII edition. On this stage there have been international artists such as Sigur Rós, Animal Collective and PJ Harvey (2016) and Patti Smith, Ride and Interpol (2015). They will be Nick Cave and Lorde, some of the protagonists of the 2018 edition.
Location of the event is the splendid Parque da Cidade. It is a wonderful and immense urban green lung, not far from the seafront. A place that blends in full with the atmosphere of this festival.
Porto boasts an efficient infrastructure system. The city is easily accessible by air, thanks to the presence of the Francisco de Sá Carneiro International Airport. The airport is located about 45 kilometers away from the center.
With the purple E line from Airport to Estádio do Dragão, you reach the destination.
Campanhã is the Porto Central Railway Station. It is well connected to many destinations on the Iberian Peninsula.
HOW TO ARRIVE TO THE PARQUE FROM CIDADE
By metro, with line A, going down to Parque Real, just follow the directions to reach the destination. Coming from line B or C, you need to change a Senhora da Hora.
Seven bus lines are active to arrive at the Festival venue. These are the 200, 202, 203, 205, 500, 501, 505 lines. Depending on the line, you need to get off at Castelo do Queijo, Pr. Cid. Salvador, or Matosinhos (Praia).
