Summer Festivals

The Summer Festivals are coming - so come along for the ride!

Five, four, three... the summer festivals are heading our way and the countdown has begun - you can almost hear the clamour of the crowd. Start packing your bags and have a look at our suggestions for all the planning you need so you won't miss a single scrap of the great experience - the experience of being there and live the music, the food and the friendships that stay, at a festival like Nos Primavera Sound, Sumol Summer Fest, NOS Alive'17, Super Bock Super Rock, Meo Marés Vivas, MEO Sudoeste, Vodafone Paredes de Coura and many, many more!

What are the three things you think of when you're preparing to go to a festival? Where you're going to sleep, certainly; what you're going to eat and how you're going to get there. The basic essentials, right? Whatever the festival (or festivals) where you're going to make your mark, full of energy and good will, it's important to know what to expect when you get there and you're right there on the spot. Hitch a ride with us, we're heading your way.

Let's start getting organised: how are you going to get there? Apart from your car or your friends' car, you've always got the option of taking public transport or perhaps renting a car or camper van, the costs are low and adventure is guaranteed. Right, that's that sorted. Now we're going to have a look at the places you can stay: campsites, with or without cabins, youth hostels, guest houses or little country hotels… feeling at home already?

One of the great crises we all go through when getting ready to go to a festival is the moment when you pack your bag. You always have that feeling that you're going to forget something vital! No need to worry about that any more, though, because we've made your list for you. For example, what about camping equipment: take your XPTO tent, all the pots and pans you need to cook on your campingaz cooker, your sleeping bag, a Macgyver-style penknife and a practical, comfortable rucksack to carry it all in. If you don't feel like cooking every day, you can always have a look at the pizzerias, grill houses and supermarkets in the area where your festival is being held. And if you should happen to get stung by a scorpion fish, go to the local chemist's.

Now all you have to do is choose your festival experience: Nos Primavera Sound, Sumol Summer Fest, NOS Alive'17, Super Bock Super Rock, Meo Marés Vivas, MEO Sudoeste, Vodafone Paredes de Coura and many, many more await you!
