Milhões de Festa has been building a reputation as the truly alternative festival in Portugal, and deservedly gathering attention throughout Europe.
From the 20th to the 23rd of July the triangle and its four stages will return to Barcelos, deep in the Northwest side of Portugal, to defy all rules and promote a non-stop summer party by the swimming pool (yup, a swimming pool stage!) and by the Cávado river with music as diverse as delightfully fresh. If you're not missing it already from the past nine editions, you'll feel the void in the chest after the 10th edition due to happen in July.
From the most danceable of pops to the extremest of metals, Milhões is a concept that often branches out to African, Latin American and Asian musical languages, promoting and supporting all kinds of cultural and experience exchange. It was the birthplace of projects such as Black Gnod (or Gnod + Black Bombaim), Black Bombaim + la la la ressonance, Throes + the Shine and Jibóia Experience, it hosted a never before seen colab concert from Marshstepper, HHY, and Varg. NEU!’s Michael Rother, Deerhoof, Electric Wizard, The Fall, Earthless, The Bug, Liars, EyeHateGod, Orange Goblin, Chelsea Wolfe, The Heads, Dan Deacon, Moon Duo, El Guincho, Conan Mocassin, Adrien Sherwood, and Goat headlined the past editions of Milhões de Festa, sharing all the credits with then up and coming artists such as Alt-J, Ho99o9, Toro Y Moi, THEESatisfaction, GAIKA, Boogarins, JIBÓIA, Flamingods, Comet is Coming, and Melt Yourself Down.
Each new year, Milhões de Festa is challenged to renew its proposals and offer a new perspective on music production in the world. For its 10th edition, the festival is taking yet another new direction, converging music from The Gaslamp Killer, Meatbodies, Janka Nabay & the Bubu Gang, Sex Swing, Sarathy Korwar, Pixvae, Enablers, and many more artists still to announce.
Milhões de Festa is a unique festival, thought out for the curious audience with the sole purpose of defying its own limitations. This means next July will have even higher temperatures and Barcelos will party even harder until it carves the triangle deep in everyone's memories. Live it to believe.
