Kraftwerk Among Big Names To Perform At Portugal’s Meo Kalorama Festival
Kraftwerk, The Chemical Brothers and Arctic Monkeys are among the big names confirmed for the first two nights of Portugal’s MEO KALORAMA (September 1 and 2 respectively), with the likes of James Blake, Bonobo, Róisín Murphy, Years & Years and Blossoms also on the bill.
During the past week, the organisers also announced Disclosure and Jessie Ware will also feature in the line-up of the inaugural MEO KALORAMA Festival in Portugal. The event, which will run from September 1-3, will take place in Bela Vista Park in Lisbon.
The festival said in a statement: “There is a new era coming. One that knows how to enjoy every moment as it truly is – unique and unrepeatable. September 1, 2 and 3, 2022 at Parque da Bela vista in Lisbon. An age that comes with a thirst to touch, to look, to feel. The one who wants hugs instead of likes, smiles instead of comments. Lisbon will travel back in time and experience the true meaning of live music.”
The Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, Crawlers and the Brazilian artist Marina Sena have also joined the line-up, which further includes Golden Slumbers, Xinobi Live, Club Makumba, Fred, D’Alva and Bruno Pernadas. You can find tickets and more information about MEO KALORAMA Festival at the event’s official website.
MEO KALORAMA headliners Arctic Monkeys are expected to release new music later this year, with their drummer Matt Helders revealing earlier this week that the band’s next album will be in a similar vein to 2018’s Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.
“I mean, it’s never gonna be like [2012 ‘AM’ single] “R U Mine?” and all that stuff again, you know, the heavy riffs and stuff,” he said. “But there are riffs in there and [it’s] a bit more up-tempo, even though it’s not loud… It’s hard to explain!”
