Finally the sun has arrived. Dreary days seemed to have ended and now that shining yellow star just said “Hello!” making everybody happy and willing to watch some shows properly. By the afternoon you could notice joyous smiles flooding the river shores that in these days is more like a grassy beach.
My personal favorite festival Paredes de Coura is just ahead and we’re here to welcome it. Almost a landmark in Portugal, Paredes de Coura is turning twenty this year. And what a big boy it has become. From the likes of Sonic Youth, Arcade Fire, Dinosaur Jr., Queens of the Stone Age, Yo La Tengo, Mogwai, PJ Harvey, Pixies, Death from Above 1979, Morrissey, Bauhaus, The Cramps (and we could keep going), the shores of river Tabuão (that sets the perfect idyllic scenery) have seen it all. More than you probably will in your whole life.
