Yup, that’s right. Algiers, Car Seat Headrest and Savages are heading to sunny Porto for Primavera this year.

“The spirit felt on the stages and on the grass of the Parque da Cidade for three days is the spirit of the city of Porto. An open city in constant mutation, that loves to give and receive. It is here that NOS Primavera Sound starts. It is in the heart of the city that we welcome the audience that arrives to enjoy every proposal that NOS Primavera Sound and Porto have to offer.”

7 Days In The L-Shaped Van

By Blue on Thursday, October 8th, 2015

“After a two year break between European tours, Ceremony crossed the pond this summer for a sprint across the continent.

In a roundabout way Ceremony helped me get a full time job doing something that I love, so naturally when they came over I had to figure out a way to ditch work, shirk all responsibility and get in the van with them.

Maybe I could be the runner? The merch guy? Drunkenly help manage the tour? De facto tour clown?

In the end I convinced the powers that be to let me take some photos.

Josh”
