From June 7th – 9th, the Parque da Cidade will also host artists such as The War On Drugs, Arca, Father John Misty, Mogwai, Jamie xx, Fever Ray or Tyler, The Creator.
After Primavera Sound revealed its lineup for this year’s edition, NOS Primavera Sound presents the one of its own. The festival’s seventh edition will continue to grow sustainably, after breaking its audience record in 2017 with around 90.000 people.
The three major headliners for NOS Primavera Sound 2018 explain, decisively, the contemporary music of today: alongside the rock-without-a-safety-net by NICK CAVE AND THE BAD SEEDS, who finally present the cathartic and now classic Skeleton Tree on stage, will be A$AP ROCKY, the new worldwide king of hip hop (who will be showcasing his anticipated third album), and this century’s rising pop music star, LORDE, critically acclaimed with her second album, Melodrama. Classicism, modernity and future, all together in one lineup.
Added to the headliners is a set of other names, who represent the festival’s DNA. From THE WAR ON DRUGS, now one of this generation’s crucial bands, to the unstoppable JAMIE XX in his DJ guise, through heavyweight artists such as FATHER JOHN MISTY and MOGWAI, the sonic avant-garde of ARCA, the risqué sound of FEVER RAY and NILS FRAHM, indie rock classics like GRIZZLY BEAR, EZRA FURMAN and WOLF PARADE, R&B phenomenon RHYE and ABRA or the multicoloured psychedelic sound of UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA.
Ready to show why the future of music is female, women will also be a part of the engine of NOS Primavera Sound 2018. New leader LORDE, headlining, will be well surrounded by names with long careers such as FEVER RAY and THE BREEDERS, besides a deafening trail of new artists, from the above mentioned Kelela, Ibeyi and Mavi Phoenix to Waxahatchee, Kelsey Lu, Superorganism, Jay Som, Vagabon, Alex Lahey, Belako and Mattiel, through Helena Hauff, Shanti Celeste and OR:LA and Avalon Emerson in electronica.
