As Gabi Ruiz, co-director of San Miguel Primavera Sound has announced, the roster for its sister festival in Oporto, Optimus Primavera Sound 2012 will definitely close this week. What was left to be announced is nothing to sneeze at: The Weeknd, M83, Suede, Chairlift, Ultramagnetic MCs, Linda Martini, The Right Ons and Stopestra (a local orchestra made up of nearly 100 musicians) have been added to the programme. At the end of the month, we’ll find out which artists will form a part of Primavera na Cidade, to be held on Sunday, 10th June.
The festival will be held in Parque da Cidade from Thursday 7th, to Saturday 9th June. On Sunday the 10th, the activities will move to other places in Oporto.
