From the Bush to Emir Kusturica: North Music Festival returns with "daring" poster - Showbiz



"No festival in Portugal has a hundred-year-old building on top and gives the conditions that we are going to give, all of this, next to a scenario that lacks presentations … We were daring this year and have the best poster, my opinion, which is also shared by critics, "said the director of the North Music Festival, Jorge Veloso, on the fringes of the presentation of the poster of the festival, which took place today at the Noble Hall of the Port Customs.

Speaking to Lusa, Jorge Veloso explained that this 3rd edition of the festival will maintain the "old school" style "of the British Bush, who pass the main stage on May 24," in emerging bands " such as the Portuguese band Glockenwise and Captain Fausto, who perform on the 25th, but also in "consolidated bands" such as Expensive Soul, which on the 24th will give a special concert to commemorate the 20th anniversary, and the Scottish band " cult "Franz Ferdinand, who acts on the 25th.

"We want to be a mainstream festival, a family festival where everyone, in one way or another, comes to see their favorite band, but also comes from other experiences," he said.

On the first day of the festival, the British Bush opened the main stage of the North Music Festival, followed by the Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica accompanied by his The No Smoking Orchestra and the "special" concert of 20 years of Expensive Soul.
