The history of music in Portugal would not be the same without the Paredes de Coura FestivalThroughout its 25 years of existence, the oldest and most charismatic Portuguese festival has made history in discovering new musical promises and presenting the most renowned names in music worldwide. With a careful and coherent schedule, always faithful to the alternative spirit that characterizes it, the Festival Paredes de Coura, which happens next to the fluvial beach of Taboão was already considered one of the 5 best music festivals in Europe by Rolling Stone magazine. The Arcade Fire, Pixies, Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Coldplay and Morrisey are just a few of the names that have stepped onto the stage of this festival. After the 25th anniversary celebration, Vodafone Paredes de Coura will return to Taboão Fluvial Beach on 15th, 16th, 17th and 18th August 2018.
