Carminho (portuguese singer) is going to be in the radio who teased an announcement for today  I really hope they didn't tease us for a portuguese artist solo concert...

It most likely is her... These guys need to attend a PR 101 workshop or something

Haha, I think we are just desperate... :P It's not that they teased something via the official NOS Alive channels. Other than that: would be great if they give us some (big) names. But to keep us folks in here happy, most PR festival people should attend an advanced course :lol:

It is just that they never tease someone that is portuguese because there simply is no need that justifies it. To do that in the middle of a period with very slow ticket sales is sloppy imo

No news good news ?

I don't think that anything besides an announcement is good news right now

Getting mentally ready for nothing to be announced. It is pretty much part of the daily routine now, this dose of disappointment

All you guys should check out the Open'er (one announcement in the last 2 months and 1/4 headliners announced) or BBK (last band announcement Dec 17th) thread and calm down a little 😛

I genuinely think the organisers have forgotten that they're putting on a festival.

I don't think so. A ton of great bands have already been announced. A ton more great bands will be announced. The festival will take place in July, the lineup will be done by then. You lot were just spoiled to get so many regular announcements before Christmas 😛 

If you're all bored, go look at the INmusic thread where they slowly drop one act max a week, with no indication of where on the lineup they'll be, so you wait and wait for a headliner to be announced, only to find out Sumski are headlining.

It is not normal for them to take this long however, we're not even asking for headliners, I dont understand how the second day has so little names

Its jut bad PR though, they're risking losing ticket buyers to other festivals by not producing enough hype around the festival at a vital time of the year.

Correct me if im wrong, but previous editions of this festivals lineup have basically been complete by this point, let alone the headline acts. As many have already mentioned, if they have a big headliner up their sleeve it seems bizarre to not announce, when people are booking tickets to other fesitvals based on the lineup. 

However, if nothing is yet to be confirmed on the inside, then we should be worried, because there arent loads of great acts left to choose from!

Nos Alive tickets cost double INmusics so we are allowed double the boredom and moaning 😆

Last headliners from last year was at the end of January.
Next headliners will be towards the middle of March to sell tickets for Easter.

Or a very large band that had already contracted failed with the organization

True, I notice in my festival tribe some reactions like "too late, I've already bought my ticket for Bilbao/Dour" (and there are many other big European festivals at that moment like TRNSMT or DMF). We're used to book festivals before February...

Exactly, I booked my ticket off The Cure alone and based off previous trips to the festival, there's plenty on the lineup for me already but not everyone will buy tickets without seeing full lineup first.

Yep, booked tickets based on Bon Iver when I should've just waited and caught them in London. Now regretting it but I love Lisbon so it's not catastrophic.

I have a one day ticket yet to redeem and the wait has been absurd considering what we are used to. I get that we are moaning a lot about this but you just can't convince me that it is reasonable for this festival to not announce other main stage acts for the second day, for example. Bad PR and poor predictability of how things roll out usually just makes people impatient and with a gradual loss of care about what's being offered and/or yet is still to be offered. This, as people have said here, leads to other festivals being more attractive. I just dont get how this is sustainable and I hope it is a one time thing. Just announce the likes of Foals and Tame Impala... Anything... The second name only has three relevant names and we're at the end of February already

pretty sure 2015 they announced a lot of bands late feb/march ....Beni and Bilbao and a lot of other festivals do not have everyone announced, and I don't see people saying that those festivals are falling apart and treating customers badly!

I am sure news will come soon and you all will have a great time!
