As reported by NME: Lisbon festival NOS Alive has announced a first wave of names for its 2021 edition.
This year’s festival was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, but will return across the weekend of July 7-10 at the Passeio Marítimo de Algés in the Portuguese capital.
Red Hot Chili Peppers are the first headliners announced for the festival, and they’ll be joined by Angel Olsen, Fontaines D.C., Alt-J, Caribou, Two Door Cinema Club and more.
Tickets for NOS Alive 2021 are on sale now here.
The new names have been announced today (July 8) to mark what would’ve been the start of the 2020 edition of NOS Alive, set to be headlined by Taylor Swift, The Strokes, Billie Eilish and Kendrick Lamar.
“This will be the first July without NOS Alive,” a statement from the festival’s organisers read at the time of postponement. “It is with a heavy heart that we announce that NOS Alive 2020 is postponed until July 2021.”
