Festival Description

The music promoter Primavera Sound is taking another stride in its development and is presenting Optimus Primavera Sound, the Portuguese edition of its outdoor festival San Miguel Primavera Sound, which has been taking place in Barcelona since 2001.

Porto is the place that has been chosen to hold this new festival of which the first edition will take place in 2012, one week after its Barcelona counterpart. This Portuguese city has all the qualities ideally associated with the “Primavera Sound” brand name, as it shares certain characteristics: like the fact that they are by the sea and have a pleasant climate, their size, their enterprising character and the services that they offer.

The event has the sponsorship of the mobile operator Optimus and the official backing of the Town Hall of Porto, who has given full support to the “Primavera Sound” brand name with the objective of enriching the already dynamic cultural life of the city. Optimus Primavera Sound will have a line up consisting of a wide selection of international artists, as well as numerous artists from the Portuguese music scene. The artistic content will follow the same guidelines as the Barcelona event, that stands out for its stylistic variety, backing newcomer bands and musicians from the local scene, together with artists of long standing careers, and artists who have played a key inspirational role in the creation of contemporary music.
