NOS Alive 2019

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking is it possible that the headliner was supposed to be Eminem. Apparently was due at werchter and pinkpop with him doing festivals June/July. With him cancelling his whole tour would explain why most have struggled to announce headliners this year

Was thinking that as well when I read it about Pinkpop, but Eminem didn't seem a headliner to me for NOS and/or Mad Cool. No 'tradition' with hiphop acts as headliners, couldn't see it go down well. Although maybe Eminem is big enough (sort of cross-over) for it and could carry his day... Not sure what his status is in Portugal. Would explain a lot of course, with a headliner dropping out.

Xavier Rudd, Gavin James performed in Portugal this year and the following week were announced.

 

Xavier Rudd, Gavin James, Idles  performed in Portugal this year/end of last year, brought by the same promoter of Nos Alive (Everything is New).

 

Twenty One Pilots  are playing by another promoter (Sons em Trânsito, instead of Alive?s Everything is New)  So i don't believe  twenty One pilots will be on the card

Apologies if these are dumb questions, but is it like other European festivals where bands start and finish much later? First band I want to see is Weezer, I'm presuming they won't be on until about 8? Looking at booking flights, but don't want to land too late in the day but don't want to get 6am flights either. 

Who is closing on the Saturday because I've seen Bon Iver ahead of the Pumpkins on one poster but the official website poster has the Pumpkins ahead? Also if it is SP are they going to clash with the Chemical Brothers?

@arcuse made this, really accurate and it could be close to reality. 

TSP and Chems won't clash, they are both on main.

Yes, the bands start and finish later. As said, those two can't clash. Usually with European festivals/this festival, the dance act will go on later, even if they aren't the biggest act on the bill. So the Chems will be on last.

I think the main stage finishes about 1am then the smaller ones go on until 4am or 5am. Check here:

I've been thinking after seeing them do a gig at the Pyramids in Egypt over the weekend and a Japanese festival lined up in August, could the RHCP be the final headliner? The band members have said that a new album is due this year, and they are very much a festival band, likely to do a mini-festival tour to create hype for it. Maybe they're the band Mad Cool, Open'er and Nos Alive are holding out for...

I'm probably the only one not bothered about this other headliner haha. £119 for The Cure, SP,  Weezer, Thom Yorke, Chemical Brothers, Vampire Weekend, Hot Chip, RBCF is fine by me. Much better than anything in the UK this summer too.

The extra headliner is just a bonus now. Of course if it was Neil Young, I'd self combust. Just hope it isn't a Gallagher, Coldplay or anything Radio 1 play.

I'm in the same camp. Now I've paid for my flight, and I don't have to 'worry' about it getting more expensive, I'm pretty much all good. Agreed that Neil Young would be optimum!

All the comments on their social media are getting angry and frustrated. Playing a really risky game.
