A Breathtaking Urban Oasis

NOS Alive's location in Lisbon is both a gift and a defining element of the festival's character. With the Tagus River to the south and the vibrant cityscape to the north, the festival sits in a breathtaking urban oasis.

Lisbon's proximity to the Atlantic Ocean enhances NOS Alive's uniqueness. The festival's location allows attendees to bask in the refreshing Atlantic breeze, adding an element of maritime serenity to the music festival experience.
