Written By Lara Silva

After two postponed editions due to the covid-19 pandemic, NOS Alive is back on Wednesday in Oeiras! The 14th edition of NOS Alive starts today with the likes of The Strokes, The War on Drugs, and Stromae.

Along the four days of the festival, there will be 165 performances in seven stages. From a comedy stage to an electronic music stage and a larger main stage, the festival’s performers this year are an eclectic bunch.

NOS Alive’s promotor Alvaro Covoes told Lusa that the festival is expecting over 200,000 people from 98 nationalities. 

The 14th edition of NOS Alive welcomes Florence + The Machine, Alt-J, Metallica, Stormzy, Jorja Smith, AJ Tracey, Tom Misch, Two Door Cinema Club, Phoebe Bridgers, and much more.

NOS Alive is known to have the most well-known line-up in Portugal, along with Rock in Rio, adding to its international popularity. In 2009, the British magazine NME named NOS Alive one of the top 12 European festivals.

The festival has invested in inclusive infrastructure for this year’s edition, now boasting platforms for disabled mobility for a more convenient entrance, as well as an area for pregnant women to enter.

The last two days of NOS Alive, Friday and Saturday are already sold out.
