    NOS Alive 2019

    They played BBK last year and went to play a concert in Germany the next day, so can´t see a problem with that, Florence can also play as co headliner with The Cure, and Tame Impala + Vampire + another strong name as co headliners for the second day

    NOS Alive 2019

    At 2016 edition they only announced Radiohead, Tame Impala, Arcade Fire and Grimes in January and February, until that date the lineup was worst that this one so I don´t think that they´re hiding anything, for me Florence is 100% in, maybe next week they´ll announce her. Of course there can be a an undercard, when they announced Arcade Fire 2 years ago it was a big surprise for everybody so I think that besides Florence there is another big name that nobody expects, but I also think that this year we won´t have fix headliners like Pearl Jam and Arctic Monkeys but a lot of co headliners, and I like that idea a lot. They always take names from Primavera Sound festival, so I expect at least Tame Impala or Interpol, but who knows, maybe they can bring another type of names from that lineup. Also there have been a lot of talk about Travis Scott and Post Malone and Childish Gambino, I´m skeptical about that but in 2015 they´ve put Stromae and in 2017 they brought The Weekend as headliner so who knows.

    Starting to believe that this will be the lineup, of course the dates are not correct

    Oh yeah I forgot, still think that they can come on another day

    NOS Alive 2019

    at this point I´m thinking: The Cure + Vampire Weekend and a very strong day at Sagres Stage for Thursday Florence + Tame Impala for the second day TSP + Bon Iver + TCB for the closing day

    Primavera Sound 2019

    Well his album is good, not one of the best of the year but good, maybe because he is spanish and famous so he can attract another type of audience, but totally makes no logic for me.

    Primavera Sound 2019

    Agree on everything you´re saying but Future and J Balvin are very bad performers live, I don´t know how Gabi said that he loved him live, also I´ve seen Future live once, he was so bad that people booed him. Really don´t know why they didn´t book Travis or Kids See Ghosts, but maybe they couldn´t make it so.

    NOS Alive 2019

    To be honest, I went once to Nos Alive and I hated it, I only go there to see I band that I really like, the only good thing about Nos Alive is the lineup and the bands that are playing there, comparing it with Primavera Sound or even Porto´s Primavera Sound is like comparing Ferrari and a Fiat This year the lineup looks good, not strong enough but good, and Porto´s edition doesn´t seem to have very good artists from what I´m expecting so this I may be back to Nos Alive just because there are no better choices.

    Florence and The Machine for co headliner

    Primavera Sound 2019

    that´s true, from all trap and mumble rappers Future is one of the most crittically acclaimed and he is shit live The same about J Balvin, his last album was well recieved, Pitchfork loved it but he is shit live, I saw him live and it was awfull On the hand Interpol´s last album was a flop for critics but they are amazing at live shows So the critical acclaim works in 80% but sometimes it doesn´t work at all It must be a combination, so I think that after Future´s and J Balvin´s show, Gabi will regret that he booked for main stages.

    NOS Alive 2019

    They´re pretty big here in Portugal, maybe in top 5 of the biggest portuguese bands ever, they´re often compared to Radiohaed because of similarity of their style, even the head singer said that their biggest inspiration are Radiohead and OK Computer. Of course for people from outside of Portugal this band is not exciting, I understand that, but Nos Alive every year puts a big portguese band to open the Nos Stage on one of the days and I can´t remember a bigger and better name than this one, so no need to worry.

    Primavera Sound 2019

    I really cried when I saw that they´re not coming to Primavera, Mad Cool or BBK or FIB will probably catch them, really good act

    NOS Alive 2019

    The Weekend and Imagine Dragons headlined and co headlined the festival in last years, can´t see why they can´t bring Travis Scott, and he is huge now, but I doubt that they will risk like that

    Primavera Sound 2019

    No it´s not that, there are still very good albums that we will hear this year like Janelle Monae, Low and lots of others, it´s just that I was expecting those artists and none of them came here and it´s strange for me, maybe not for other people. Speaking about that portuguese festival Gabi went last year, it´s the worst festival we have here in Portugal, in terms of artists, in terms of fans, just check their lineup. I also went to that festival because my friends offered me tickets and I went to see J Balvin, I heard his album before and I liked it but boy he was awfull, it was a simple reggeaton concert, nothing new, just backup dancers and a bit of lights. Unless J Balvin makes a hell of a show in Primavera, with great visual show and dancers and stuff like that, I could see it again but I don´t know, and his voice is very bad at live concerts, it´s cringy. Speaking of Cardi B, I also seen her last year, and for my surprise she is a great performer with a good show. Can´t say the same about Future, I hated his show back in 2017 when I saw him in Lisbon.
