Rock in Rio returns to Lisbon on May 2010

Most expected these days, the world’s biggest music festival is already planning his next Lisbon gathering. On May 21, 22, 27 and 29, Rock in Rio Festival will be back to Parque da Bela Vista, right in the middle of the city (map).

For five days this will be the city of rock with over 12 hour of performances a day. On the “World Stage” you may see some of the best international bands, while the “Electronic Tent” will host leading national and international DJ’s and VJ’s. Alternative music will be on at the “Hot Stage”.

There will also be a “Radical Space” for the adventurous type and a “Kid Space” for children.

For the time being there are still few confirmed bands, but I will repost this further along this year with more information.

REVIEW: Café Nicola – a leap in time

Amazingly or not, I’ve always passed in front of Café Nicola, kept walking but never taken the time to sit and enjoy it. Why? Basically because I’ve always found it too busy to get in. I’ve always seen it a bit as a touristic trap. This Sunday I woke up early and got there before 9am...

Lisbon Playing with the Cold and the Rain

Temperatures have been hitting as low as 5ºC during day time. While I imagine this is normal for many of you readers, for us it’s just something we’re not used to, and many times not even prepared. Still, it’s like a play between the sun and the rain that brings along colder or warmer...
