The Primavera Sound Festival in Barcelona is a indie rock mecca that every festie should visit at least once in their life. We loved our time in Barcelona, but last year’s sister festival held in Portugal really stole our hearts. The cozy NOS Primavera Sound, held in the utterly delightful city of Porto, takes place in a comfortable grassy park…and it’s only an eight minute walk to the ocean.
This smaller scale edition doesn’t boast the arena sized headliners of the parent festival, but the setting is more intimate and less overwhelming. This year, NOS Primavera Sound will welcome Aphex Twin, Justice, Run The Jewels, Bon Iver, Death Grips, and Teenage Fanclub. Check out the rest of the lineup here in our MFW Festival Guide.
