August 18th - 27th, Festas do Mar at Cascais Bay
The only free summer festival in Portugal is back, and it’s coming to a stage right by the Atlantic Ocean
This year, the Festival in Cascais Bay has its best set ever, with names like D.A.M.A., HMB, Tiago Bettencourt & Carminho, Katia Guerreiro, Miguel Ângelo and Miguel Gameiro, Aurea, The Black Mamba, Miguel Araújo & António Zambujo, even Rui Veloso.
The Festival this year brings a diverse programme that goes from pop rock to fado, from symphonic to soul music. The opening show is left to the musical group D.A.M.A. and, from there on, the nights are long with the funk of HMB, the voices of Tiago Bettencourt & Carminho, Miguel Ângelo and Miguel Gameiro, the soul of Aurea, the cool style and passion of the music of The Black Mamba.
Miguel Araújo invites António Zambujo for a memorable duet while Rui Veloso will make “the whole bay sing”. Fado, of course, is part of the Festival’s DNA and comes through the voice of Katia Guerreiro.
During the last night, there will be an homage to one of the greatest bands of all time. The Cascais Symphonic, directed by maestro Nicolay Lalov along with The Bootleg Beatles, will interpret some of the greatest themes of the historical Beatles.
As always, at the end of the Festival, there will be the already traditional firework show over Cascais Bay.
