The North Music Festival returns to the Alfandega do Porto from today until Sunday for three days of “riverside partying” with Robbie Williams, The Chemical Brothers and Ivete Sangalo as headliners.

Today, the day is dedicated to electronic music and rock, with The Chemical Brothers, Bomba Estéreo, The Legendary Tigerman, Trabalhadores do Comércio, and Jáfumega.

“On the second day we have more of the hot rhythms of Brazil, but also Nininho Vaz Maia, who is Portuguese, but also quite lively,” said to Lusa the president of the promoter Vibes & Beats, Jorge Veloso, about Saturday’s lineup, which also includes Ivete Sangalo, Ana Castela and Gustavo Mioto.

The third and last day, Sunday, is “more ‘pop rock'”, with Robbie Williams, Pedro Abrunhosa, The Black Mamba and Tiago Nacarato.

There will be “three distinct days, three lively days, and therefore three days of riverside festivities,” the promoter emphasized, stressing that “the festival is not just a main stage.

Besides this, there is also “a ‘sunset’, a stage on the boat, another ‘indoor’ [indoors], which is the ‘clubbing'”. It is on these stages that Djeff, King Kami, Progressivu, Francisco Gil (today), Batalá, Rich & Mendes, Switchdance (Saturday), Shaka Lion and Yen Sung (Sunday) will perform.

Besides the music, there will be “lots of parallel activities, such as the ‘Wine Garden’, the famous boat rides, and entertainment in the space: barbers, ‘makeup’ and ‘tattoos’,” as in previous editions.

Although the number of stages is the same, the venue space has “doubled.

This year, the organization expects “15 to 18 thousand people per day”. “Our big goal is to have 50 thousand people in the three days”, said Jorge Veloso, pointing out that among the tickets already sold, “20% to 30% are for people outside” Portugal.

Three-day passes for the North Music Festival are sold out, but there are still daily tickets, which cost €55 for today and Saturday, and €95 for Sunday.

Those who can’t go to Alfândega do Porto can watch some of the concerts on RTP1, starting at 11:40 pm each day, the public broadcasting station announced.

RTP1 will show, in delayed mode, the performances of Trabalhadores do Comércio, Jáfumega, The Legendary Tigerman (today), Ivete Sangalo, Nininho Vaz Maia (Saturday), Pedro Abrunhosa, Tiago Nacarato and The Black Mamba (Sunday).
