Primavera Sound Festival
Primavera Sound has taken place in Porto since 2012. The music festival, the Spanish and original edition of which has been held annually since 2001 in Barcelona, is currently regarded as the greatest musical event of the year in the Invicta city. Occupying 16 of the 86 acres of the City Park, next to the sea, the event that is always held at the beginning of June offers a unique environment, an alternative array of music and a mild climate, which foreigners welcome dearly. Primavera Sound has seen big names from the international music scene, such as Rufus Wainwright, Suede, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Blur, Pixies and/or The National.
