What can you expect from Nova Batida this year, as it returns for a second year.
With Nova Batida nearly returning this Thursday, we go through what you can expect from the two year old festival in Lisbon later this week. From ideal weather forecast to cheap drink and delicious food, Nova Batida is set for a brilliant return afters its very successful first year.
The Nova Batida team have curated a lineup featuring some of the biggest names in dance music, plus some of the most promising budding talents coming from all over Europe for this special 5 day event in Lison.
Bring your sun cream and togs, it’s set to be a very hot one with temperatures expected to rise to 33 degrees on Friday and with it continuing to stay the same for the duration of the weekend.
If the talent on land isn’t enough, two days of boat parties will be taking place on the Rio Tejo over the weekend. Running from 3PM to 6PM each day, Friday will see DJ Seinfeld and HAAi take to the Boat Party, while Daniel Avery and KETTAMA do the same on the Saturday. No doubt these two parties will sell out so grab your tickets while you can.
