NOS Primavera Sound is an eclectic alternative music festival in Porto, Portugal. Founded in 2011, this is the younger sibling to the revered Barcelona festival of the same name.
Like its older sibling, the Portuguese outing shares the unerring dedication to showcasing fresh and exciting new music, on a lineup that is consistently one of the best in Europe.
Recent editions have welcomed leading lights from an array of styles and genres, including Aphex Twin, Run the Jewels, PJ Harvey and Sigur Rós.
Where the festival differs from its Spanish sibling is its setting and surroundings, not simply by virtue of being in another country and city. Rather than the modern industrial surroundings of Barcelona's Parc del Forum, NOS Primavera Sound nestles among lush greenery in Porto's picturesque Parque da Cidade.
