The bands are pretty decent but not big names, any of them - Amen Dunes, Talaboman, some DJs (including Jamie XX) and some good Portuguese bands. 

But it's disappointing they couldn't even find one big interesting name like Thom Yorke.

I'm really happy about Amen Dunes, but a bit disappointed they missed the chance to get Lykke Li, (Sandy) Alex G, Ty Segall, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Panda Bear, Oneohtrix Point Never, Chromeo, Car Seat Headrest or even Hinds.

Anyone have any experience of best places in the city to stay in terms of ease of access to the festival?

Matosinhos is cheap, quiet and super convenient. There's a beach of sorts as well.

I'd also recommend Matosinhos. There are great facilities there and it's only 20 mins into the city centre by Metro during the day.

It's great to be able to walk back from the festival site in the small hours rather than battling for transport back into the city.

Staying in Matosinhinos this year.

Previously we've stayed off Avenue da Boavista/Casa Musica without too much trouble getting back and forth.

Stayed at Hotel Chique in the centre both times I went. Near the Aliados metro station to access the festival and the late night bus from the festival stopped right outside the hotel.

Still no day splits?? Come on guys, sort it out!

Last year the day lineup split was out on 16 January.

Getting ridiculous now. They must have the information...

Next Wednesday it will already be one month after Barcelona announced theirs (which must be harder to organise)

Does anyone know anything about this band?

https://www.nosprimaverasound.com/2018_artists?id=19&lang=en

I've searched all over the internet (Google, YouTube, Facebook, Spotify) and I found zero information about the band or the members.

Maybe I'm tripping, but could this be a surprise act of a big band with a fake name (like arcade fire surprise gig last year)?

It's very easy to find one half of that act, their previous act, and even the blokes facebook page.

It seems crazily elaborate. Why just not include the band at all rather than invent a band that doesn't exist? More likely they are friends of the organisers who wanted to give them their first profile...

And Arcade Fire weren't given a fake name...

I found two blokes with the same name but one of them was a private profile and the other did not have a single mention about music or his band. I mean, if I had a band without a Spotify account or even a facebook page or bandcamp, I would probably write something about playing One of the biggest european festivals. Based on the information I found online about the band (nothing, besides the NOS Primavera Sound page), I didn't even imagine that those guys had a previous act. Can you tell me where you got that information?

Yes, you're right. I was just asking if it was possible to do something similar like arcade fire did (not particulary arcade fire). They played surprise gigs under a different name to promote one of their albums. Maybe some other band could make a surprise appearence under a fake name.

This is something that Barcelona might do but it is not Porto's style.

I would say <10% chance of a surprise band and 0% they would do it this way with a fake band.

I am going to make a long shot guess.  Last year we had names in a extra day for NPS, that were in Barcelona the same year or the year before , like Jessy Lanza,  Shura, the black madonna, and others.

With this new festival in Madrid (that happen during 2 days of NPS) with some bands that are in Barcelona (or were last year) , and aren´t on the portuguese card,  can we get another  extra day dedicated to electronic music, with  the likes of Kelly Lee Owens (despite already being booked in Braga and Lisbon) , Hot chip MegaMix,, Kiasmos, Yaeji or others?
