Festival News: Mount Kimbie headline Lisbon’s brand new Nova Batida

22.01.18

Nova Batida is a brand new city festival for Europe blending together the freshest music, art, culture and lifestyle from all corners of the world in one of the most exciting creative hubs.

The people behind Soundwave, Paradise Island and Funk & Soul Weekender festivals have gone out to create something really unique and special. Set in possibly the most exciting city in Europe right now Soundcrash’s Nova Batida encompasses all that this great and beautiful city has to offer as well being 15 mins from some of the best surf beaches in the world.

Nova Batida will be spread across two venues in Lisbon, the LX Factory and Village Underground Lisboa.  A sprawling converted factory with courtyards, out buildings, even avenues and warehouses has been turned into LX Factory, one of the most significant creative hubs in Europe with roof terraces, bars, fashion outlets and much more.

In its maiden year, the Nova Batida line-up will combine some of the best international talent spreading across multiple genres – headlining this year will be Mount Kimbie fresh off the back of their critically acclaimed third album ‘Love What Survives'. Maribou State are bringing their full live 7 piece band plus Gilles Peterson, George Fitzgerald, Max Cooper and Dummy favourite Connie Constance with many more TBA.

If that isn't enough there are surf classes, beach parties, yoga classes, or you can just kick back with a craft beer and watch the street artists transform the whole of Village Underground over the weekend.
