Lose yourself to dance. And to music. Here are the best summer music festivals. From the mainstream Rock in Rio to the more alternative (and recent) Nova Batida, there are artists and concerts for every taste - even for those who like to camp.

On stage you’ll have renowned international musical artists as well as Portuguese, some of which are already quite popular outside our country.
