Casa da Música requires no introduction – you’ll find it in pretty much every city guide.
This ‘House of Music’ (Casa da Música) is a democratic, non-discriminating place, dedicated primarily to music of all genres, from unknown artists to world-renowned ones. It brings you music for all tastes, all ages, all styles.
What you may not know is that Casa da Música has a (not so) secret identity. Every now and again, it turns into a club.
The building itself is an intricately geometric concrete block. Inside you’ll find clashing ambiences: traditional portuguese tiles coexist with edgy, minimalist decorations where rough metals and neon lights are predominant. That contrast is the perfect analogy for the NOS Club experience: eclectic and memorable.
Casa da Música started hosting these sessions a couple of years ago and the event has become increasingly relevant in Porto’s nightlife.
The line-up tends to include both trendy newcomers and established international artists for a night of live concerts, dj sets and other multimedia performances.
The event is scattered between different areas – from the bar to the basement, from the auditorium to the rehearsal studios. An itinerary that takes you from indie to electronic in no time. There’s a main concert which is paid for, but other activities are usually free or pretty cheap.
2013’s editions headliners have included names like Jeff Mills and Nouvelle Vague. October of 2014 brought back the Clubbing sessions with Linda Martini, Rodrigo Amarante, Holy Fuck, and many more. We shall see what’s next… See you there!
