In July, don’t miss out on one of the largest urban music festivals in Europe! Super Bock Super Rock is much more than beer and rock.
Dubbed the chameleon by a lot of people, given its desire to reinvent itself over the years, the festival returned to Lisbon in 2015. Beside the Tagus, it has chosen for its new home the Parque das Nações, one of the most impressive, modern and iconic settings in the city. Equally relevant is the excellent location, 5 minutes from the airport and in an area with a good range of hotels.
Intending to revolutionize the model of big festivals in Portugal, this festival has a completely innovative format with a concept that is modern, urban and cosmopolitan. It offers first-rate conditions with the comfort of its infrastructure and access, enabling thousands of festival-goers to enjoy the fusion of indoor and outdoor urban spaces brilliantly adapted to holding dozens of concerts. It provides an exceptional context for occupying and experiencing this location in a unique way, as an extension of the city in music.
With the aim of improving the experience of the audiences and enhancing the connection with the River Tagus, an environment has been developed which makes the concerts given by the artists around the grounds of the Super Bock Super Rock quite unique. It proposes an extension of the spectacle over the public in an immersive experience, thus increasing the limits of performance from the stages and boosting the music through light.
Urban art has spontaneously and naturally been occupying an increasingly important space in the festival. A new visual identity and several creative and interactive actions have been planned that will take ownership of the site to create a closer connection between this artistic expression and the public, providing festival-goers with a free beginners’ workshop on graffiti in the company of an artist.
Twenty-three years since its first edition in 1995, Super Bock Super Rock will, as always, provide a full line-up of extraordinary international and Portuguese artists in a great setting, thereby confirming its status as one of the biggest urban musical events in Europe.
Lisbon, built on seven hills, is a city with an unforgettable light and considered the most beautiful in Europe. A city where you can make a bit of everything from seeing historical monuments, visit museums, stroll along the river, drink a ginjinha in downtown, sit down to read a book on a park bench or take a dip in the best beaches of the country.
Its streets, sometimes labyrinthine and sometimes ordered, the typical cobblestone, the tiles facades, the pombalino buildings, the clothes hanged by the window, the baked sardines on bread. All this makes Lisbon undoubtedly a charming town with lots of history around the corner.
