Last time The Cure headlined NOS Alive, they only had 2 bands supporting them (Florence & Mumford) and played 36 songs. When they performed in South Africa last month, they played pretty long sets, 32 songs. I fully expect the same in Lisbon, 3 hours set. That's why I think there won't be any more acts on the main stage on Thursday. Cure, Weezer and 2 other acts already announced. Plus Sharon van Etten & Xavier Ruud on other stage. Very happy about that
Saturday is already sorted. Pumpkins, Chems, Bon Iver, Idles, don't need much more to be honest.
Friday is probably the worst day I seen anywhere this year. One decent band called Primal Scream, and the rest is just a waste of time & space. Still think that missing headliner will be Kings Of Leon. Maybe they got some strange deal / agreement with Beni that they can't announced KOL for a time being? Still don't get it why some of the acts that been released lately by Mad Cool are not shared by NOS.
2 great days, one to forget, terrible PR. I haven't been there since 2008, might be tempted enough to come back
