NOS Alive Festival is thrilled to announce Foo Fighters long awaited return to Portugal. Back for the first time in six years, the band will headline the NOS Alive Festival on Friday 7th July 2017.
In the 20+ years since the 1995 release of Foo Fighters’ self-titled debut, Dave Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Nate Mendel, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear have grown into the last great American arena/stadium rock band. The band’s massive catalogue of gold and platinum albums has won 11 Grammys, four Brit Awards, sold 25+ million records, and is the backbone of marathon shows powered by singalong anthems “Everlong,” “Monkey Wrench,” “My Hero,” “Learn To Fly,” “All My Life,” “Best Of You,” “The Pretender,” “Walk,” “Something From Nothing” and more.
Foo Fighters’ headline set will make the 11th NOS Alive Festival an unforgettable experience for the ages. The festival takes place in Lisbon, Portugal, at Passeio Marítimo de Algés, on 6, 7 & 8th July 2017.
Since its formation in 2007, Portugal’s NOS Alive has developed an enviable reputation as one of the world’s leading festivals. Always able to attract superstar headliners and the hottest new bands, NOS Alive also benefits from blissful Mediterranean weather and having both the beach and the stunning city of Lisbon its doorstep.
Now NOS Alive festival builds up towards its 2017 edition with the confirmation of Foo Fighters as headliner. The band will play the Friday night, on July 7th. Following last year’s 10th anniversary celebration which offered a stellar line-up with headliners such as Radiohead, Arcade Fire (in one of the only three performances in a year), Robert Plant, Pixies, Biffy Clyro, Chemical Brothers and Tame Impala, NOS Alive continues to develop its international reputation. Held in Lisbon for the 11th edition, NOS Alive has been considered one of World’s Best Festivals by The Guardian, The Independent, NME, CNN, Rolling Stone, Vogue amongst many others.
