Now entering its eighth year, the 50,000 capacity festival enjoys sunny weather and a prime location in the heart of Lisbon, a 5 minute drive from the capital's historical landmarks and nightlife.
With some of Europe's best beaches and surfing spots 10 mins away by train, Optimus Alive is very much a 'beach by day, music by night' destination festival - the festival opens at 6pm and goes on until 6am and fans can either book from the huge array of affordable local accommodation, or camp in the festival campsite.
With the Tagus River as landscape to explore the festival has arts, cafes, restaurants, as well as music on offer.
There is camping available (must be purchased with ticket), and also plenty of other accommodation options in the city and festival goers are recommended to book accommodation in Lisbon early.
More information will be here when available.
