The Optimus Alive! Festivalis one of the biggest music and art festivals in Portugal. First held in 2007, it has gained popularity inside and outside Portugal over the years.
And it is one of the best music festivals I have ever been on.
Held in Passeio Marítimo de Alges, Oeiras in Lisbon, this year’s festival line up included bands like The Kills, The Cure, Tricky, Zola Jesus, Danko Jones, Stone Roses, Mumford & Sons and RADIOHEAD, my favorite band in the world! You could imagine my excitement when I first got wind of this news especially when they would be performing during my birthday night!
Having such a great lineup and among other things brought in a lot of foreigners to the festival that it was even nominated as the Best International Festival in the UK Festival Awards.
But most of all, Optimus Alive! Festival is a perfect three-day party to go with your friends. You get to drink some beers, dance to the beats, and have a blast!
And as early as now, the organizers have already confirmed performers for next year’s festival like Depeche Mode and Kings of Leon, and we’re eagerly waiting for more!
So, if you don’t have plans on July 12 – 14, 2013, come to Lisbon and enjoy the show!
