27º Super Bock Super Rock com novas confirmações


On the 13th, 14th and 15th of July, Super Bock Super Rock finally returns to its home, at Herdade do Cabeço da Flauta, next to Praia do Meco, Sesimbra.

With the beach right next door, and with all the logistical conditions assured, this is the perfect setting to celebrate the most authentic music of the moment. After The 1975, Franz Ferdinand, James Murphy DJ Set, Black Country, New Road, L’Impératrice, and Sampa The Great, there is another series of names to enrich an increasingly unmissable line-up, with premieres and historic performances, always attentive trends that point to the future and that promise to delight music lovers:

The debut in Portugal of multi-2023 Grammy nominee Steve Lacy, the return of one of Portugal’s most beloved singer-songwriters Father John Misty, plus Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Charlotte de Witte, Tomás Wallenstein, and Ezra Collective.


Born and raised in Compton, California, Steve Lacy’s interest in music, like thousands of other young Americans, began between the church and Guitar Hero. He later began to stand out as a producer and was part of The Internet, contributing all his talent to the album “Ego Death” (2014), nominated for a Grammy. As a solo artist, he began to stand out with “C U Girl”, a single released in 2016. These first solo steps did not prevent him from developing successful collaborations with names such as Twenty88, Denzel Curry, Isaiah Rashad, J Cole, GoldLink, Tyler, the Creator, even with the band Vampire Weekend, and of course, with Kendrick Lamar, thus becoming, at just 24 years old, one of the most coveted producers of the moment. In 2019, he releases his debut album, which was long awaited until then, and “Apolo XXI” does not disappoint the high expectations of fans, quite the contrary. Well received by the public and acclaimed by the critics, this record reveals Steve’s originality, manifested in lyrics around identity issues and in more introspective verses. Thanks to this record, Steve Lacy would again be nominated for a Grammy, this time solo. Influenced by names like Thundercat, Erykah Badu, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Pharrell Williams, The Neptunes, Prince, among many others, Steve Lacy has always looked for his own voice. And that identity is even more evident on his latest album, “Gemini Rights”, released in 2022. Steve starts from the narrative of a heartbreak in love to build a record that contains in itself several states of mind, without ever losing a frankness and a sincerity that disarms anyone. And, once again, Steve’s love for music also shines through here: from Caetano Veloso to Andre 3000, from the Beatles to Sly Stone, there are many names that inspired him to write these new songs. “Gemini Rights” is in the running for the 2023 Grammys in four categories: Record of the Year, Song of The Year, Best Solo Performance and Best Progressive R&B Album. And the nominated song, “Bad Habit”, promises to be one of the highlights of Steve Lacy’s concert at Super Bock Super Rock – it takes place on the 15th of July at the Super Bock Stage.


It’s hard to talk about the best independent music of recent years without mentioning Father John Misty. Joshua Michael Tillman started playing drums in a few indie bands. But it wasn’t long before he started making his own songs, inspired by the music of Nick Drake, Pete Seeger, and the short stories of Flannery O’Connor. Even long before signing as Father John Misty, Tillman edited a series of albums in which he revealed talent and good taste for writing songs. In 2008 he joined the band Fleet Foxes, staying with the Seattle group until 2012. And it was precisely there that he created the signature Father John Misty, giving a turn in his journey in music until then. The debut album, “Fear Fun”, published in 2012, already showed that the new name was also accompanied by new ideas. Albums such as “I Love You, Honeybear” (2015), “Pure Comedy” (2017), and “God’s Favorite Customer” (2018) consolidated this new language and made Father John Misty one of the most relevant figures in independent music made in the latter decade. In 2022, the American musician and composer presented another collection of songs to the world. “Chloë and the Next 20th Century” confirms Father John Misty as one of the main storytellers among contemporary composers, between tragedy and comedy, without ever losing his talent for making songs of disarming beauty. Songs such as “The Next 20th Century” and “Olvidado (Otro Momento)” prove the musician’s good form and are some of the themes that the Portuguese public expects to hear live in the concert scheduled for the next Super Bock Super Rock. Father John Misty performs on Stage 2 on July 13th.


Nile Rodgers has already achieved the status of a music legend, with his legacy as a songwriter, producer and guitarist. Over the decades he has always striven to break new ground in music and expand the frontiers of popular music itself. Co-founder of the band CHIC, Nile Rodgers has always been at the forefront of the development of new musical languages, as evidenced by singles such as “Le Freak”, the best-selling single on Atlantic Records, or “Good Times”, in the advent of hip-hop language, milestones that contribute to his presence in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame. Records like “C’est Chic” (1978) or “Risqué” (1979) serve as a legacy for hundreds of musicians who came later and for others who encounter his music every day. In addition to all his legacy as a composer, he also stood out for his work as a producer of multiple hits for artists such as Diana Ross (“Upside Down”), David Bowie (“Let’s Dance”), Madonna (“Like a Virgin”), Daft Punk (“Get Lucky”), among many others. His collaborations with recent artists such as Avicii, Keith Urban, Disclosure, Sam Smith or Lady Gaga also attest to his relevance and currentness. His name will also go down in music history for his vibrant live performances at some of the biggest festivals in the world and, also for this reason, the presence of Nile Rodgers and the band CHIC in Portugal will be absolutely unmissable – they perform on the 14th of July on the Super Bock Stage.


Charlotte de Witte is one of the greatest talents in electronic music made today. Considered by many to be the current queen of techno music, Charlotte has been setting the dancefloor on fire everywhere, having festivals such as Time Warp, Sonus Festival, Awakenings Festival, Dimensions, Movement Torino, Tomorrowland, among many others. . Born in Ghent, Belgium, Charlotte started her journey as a DJ in 2010, aged just 17. She began by performing under the pseudonym Raving George, drawing attention to her merits in music rather than side aspects such as gender. And it was with this signature that she began to reap the first fruits of success, thanks to singles like “You’re Mine” (with Oscar and the Wolf). The consolidation of a language that was increasingly hers made it inevitable that she began to present herself with her own name: Charlotte de Witte. Since then, Charlotte’s popularity has not stopped growing. Records such as “The Healer” (2018) or “Selected” (2019) consolidated her fame in the international techno scene, without ever ceasing to take risks and want to do something different. Today Charlotte also has her own label, KNTXT, and it was with this label that she released her most recent EP. “Apollo” is Charlotte de Witte like herself: strong, acidic, daring, hypnotic… And live, the journey proposed by Charlotte becomes truly unforgettable. The Belgian DJ and producer is coming to Meco this summer and will close the Super Bock Stage on the 14th of July.


Son of a lyrical singer and a bass player, Tomás Wallenstein also revealed his talent in music. Composer and lyricist for Capitão Fausto, one of the most relevant bands in the current Portuguese music scene, he revealed from an early age a curiosity for the most varied instruments, playing piano, violin, bass, guitar and even drums. Despite having studied architecture, he soon realized that his true vocation would be on stage. In addition to his career with Capitão Fausto and numerous collaborations, he also stands out for being one of the creators of Cuca Monga, a publisher responsible for launching artists such as GANSO, Luis Severo, Zarco, Reis da República or Rapaz Ego. Faced with a prolonged stay indoors, the last few years have given Tomás Wallenstein the opportunity to get closer to a universe that until now had been distant. The free time channeled into hours sitting at the piano led the singer-songwriter to appropriate songs and music that he had purely and simply heard. After the live experiences, the record arrived. “Vida Antiga” is a tribute to the work of selected authors, a celebration of the Portuguese language, and a desire to bring Portugal and Brazil closer through their music. In this new work by Tomás Wallenstein we can find versions by artists such as Erasmo Carlos, Zeca Afonso, B Fachada, Luís Severo, Cartola, Tim Bernardes, or José Mário Branco interspersed with two compositions by Satie and Debussy. Tomás Wallenstein brings this experience to the Super Bock Super Rock stage. The Portuguese musician will perform on the 15th of July at the Stage LG by Rádio SBSR.FM.


The band Ezra Collective was born in London in 2016, formed by Femi Koleoso, TJ Koleoso, Joe Armon-Jones, Dylan Jones and James Mollison. They started to stand out in the London jazz scene, but soon showed their eclecticism, presenting a sound with elements of hip-hop, afrobeat, grime, R&B, among other genres. They released their first EP, “Chapter 7”, in 2016, followed by “Juan Pablo: The Philosopher”, the following year. From an early age, they also stood out for their memorable live performances, moments where they let their creativity loose, transmitting a truly contagious joy. In 2019 they released their first album: “You Can’t Steal My Joy”. Departing from the jazz heritage, this record is yet another example of eclecticism at the service of an increasingly unique language. As collaborations with names like Loyle Carner, Jorja Smith or Kokoroko, the album catapulted the band to another level of popularity, conquering the world with its rhythm between jazz and funk. In 2022 they edited the second album. “Where I’m MeantTo Be” is proof that maturity can be accompanied by a taste for celebrating life. With the collaboration of Kojey Radical, Emeli Sandé, Nao and Sampa the Great, and without ceasing to sound like Ezra Collective, with a lot of afrobeat, jazz, funk and hip-hop, the disc also tests new ideas, natural fruits of the many moments of stage improvisation over the years. Each concert is unrepeatable and one of these moments takes place at Meco – on the 15th of July at the Super Bock Stage.
