Anisotropic flow is sensitive to the shear (η/s) and bulk (ζ/s) viscosity of the quark-gluon plasma created in heavy-ion collisions, as well as the initial state of such collisions and hadronization mechanisms. In these proceedings, elliptic (υ2) and higher harmonic (υ3, υ4) flow coefficients of π±, K±, p(p) and the ϕ-meson, are presented for Pb—Pb collisions at the highest-ever center-of-mass energy of = 5.02 TeV. Comparisons to hydrodynamic calculations (IP-Glasma, MUSIC, UrQMD) are shown to constrain the initial conditions and viscosity of the medium.
