The festival that is the house of the world

​The Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds show on the last day of NOS Primavera Sound is already singled out by independent journalists as having been the best concert of recent years in Portugal. The night was magical, with 30 thousand spectators raving for an hour and a half of rain in the Porto City Park.

Vítor Belanciado from the Público newspaper wrote, "It was the best night in history with Nick Cave at Nos Primavera Sound", adding that "many moons from now it will still be remembered as that time when we heard Nick Cave in the rain, in Porto city park".

Ricardo Jorge Fonseca, from the newspaper Jornal de Notícias, also wrote that "the concert was under heavy rain, but there was hardly anyone who felt bothered with it. The enchantment overcame everything."

And Gonçalo Correia wrote in the Observador a text entitled "Dancing and fighting death by throwing us all to the mat. How do you do it, Nick Cave?" where he states: "before the concert, the warning was given: to see Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds in 2018 is a historic privilege. Everybody who filled the grounds of the Porto City Park last Saturday and did not leave the almost hour and a half that lasted the concert knew it so well. But it was not Nick Cave and his band (so well led by Warren Ellis) who had every privilege in playing for an audience that withstood the rain, it was us, all who were there, that had the unique privilege of attending one of the best concerts of recent years in Portugal."

Rita Carmo, in Blitz, a music magazine, writes that Nick Cave was imperial and gave a tremendous show, and added: "Nick Cave shook the NOS Primavera Sound under heavy rain, and these are the photos of a great concert".

The seventh edition of NOS Primavera Sound has beaten all audience records, with more than 100 thousand people going to Porto City Park and will also have been the one event which left the most economic return in the city, estimated at 20 million euros.

The aerial images taken by a drone at the service of the organization, show 30 thousand people in one of the six stages of the festival, while Nick Cave was singing, in the rain. And next year there will be more, on 6-8 June.
