We love music – and we love going to concerts when we travel.

Like in all other areas Lisbon is picking up on the music scene. We don’t have a week without at least one festival, concert and/or music event in all kinds of genres.

A month ago Rock in Rio kicked off the season for the big international Music event with Bruce Springsteen headlining the program… and a few days later AC/DC kicked off the concert season with their debut show featuring Axl Rose, with Adele following up the week after.

Now its time for the traveling Rock Circus… the festivals that ‘tour’ Europe – or rather the festival with the all the international artists that tour Europe at the same tim and are on all the festivals all over Europe  – something that give travelers an opportunity to combine their holiday with a concert or two.

Are you going  to Lisbon here are some of the bigger festivals that The London Economics high lighted yesterday. We added the Reverence Valada 2016 festival which TLE somehow forgot… we blogged about this festiva a few weeks ago.

Have a fantastic music summer holiday
