Live Lisbon

Lisbon hosts a wealth of cultural, culinary and music festivals during the summer months - there's something for everyone...

Rock in Rio Lisboa - May / June

Rock in Rio-Lisboa, the greatest music festival in the world, brings to Lisbon a line-up of international pop, rock and electronic music stars. Families are also invited to enjoy the amusement park, green spaces and, of course, the music.

Festas de Lisboa - June

June is the month of the Festas de Lisboa, with their highpoint on 12 June, the night before the Santo António public holiday, which people celebrate above all in traditional neighbourhoods, eating grilled sardines, or watching the traditional parades on Avenida da Liberdade.

NOS Alive - July

Recognised as one of the best music festivals in Europe, NOS Alive brings to the Passeio Marítimo in Algés the biggest names in pop, rock and electronic music for memorable concerts. Beaches and Lisbon itself so close by are additional attractions for Portuguese and foreign festivalgoers.

Sumol Summer Fest - July

Ericeira is the annual stage for this festival that brings together music, surfing, beaches and friends. Aimed more at lovers of hip hop, pop and electronic music, Sumol Summer Fest is a festival inspired by and associated with the beach.

Global Champions Tour - July

The cosmopolitan town of Cascais, which has a long equestrian tradition, once again welcomes the world’s best riders for a high-calibre show jumping event. The event is part of the much-respected Global Champions Tour.

Super Bock Super Rock - July

Presenting a modern, urban and cosmopolitan concept, Super Bock Super Rock is considered one of the country’s great music festivals. It offers a 3-day line-up of the most extraordinary international and Portuguese rock and alternative music.

Festival O Sol da Caparica - August

The O Sol da Caparica festival offers 4 days of the best music in Portuguese. More than 30 artists and bands for 11 hours of music every day, with lounge zones, an avenue dedicated to surfing and many other initiatives related to urban culture and film.

BLOC Magazine

BLOC-Magazine-Summer-18.jpg (466 KB)As the demolition phase of our BLOC Grand Central project nears completion, we are focusing on a number of other sites in the UK and Europe. We are working hard to expand the BLOC presence in major city centres and transport hubs.

We are keen for more discerning travellers to experience BLOC's affordable luxury and learn how we are changing the way people use hotels.

The 18th issue of BLOC magazine explores Lisbon, recent winner of 'The World's Leading City Destination'. The Portuguese capital is a city where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation.

We also profile BLOC-sponsored, Jamie Chadwick, who has signed for the Williams F1 team as a development driver.

Staying with the motoring theme, we showcase the stunning new Aston Martin Valkyrie and Porsche's new electric offering.

Once again we hope that this magazine provides you with some insight and entertainment on your journey.

You can view all of the articles on this site or view an online FREE version of the magazine, here.

We’ll also be adding to and updating this site with more cool stuff that we find on our travels. Jump on board!
