6 - 9 September, 2018 — Barcelos, Portugal

Milhões de Festa has been building a reputation as the truly alternative festival in Portugal, and deservedly gathering attention throughout Europe.

From the 6th to the 9th of September 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 ten editions, you'll feel the void in the chest after the 11th edition due to happen in September.

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.

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 September 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.

Milhões stage

Right in front of the main entrance to the festival, Milhões stage is the biggest structure in the event and where the most renown artists perform. As part of its set is the beautiful landscape of Cávado rivers banks, as well as the nature in its other side, in Barcelinhos. A perfect and harmonious mix of cool scenery and nature.

Lovers stage

Designed to emulate either an open air rock stage and a club, Lovers stage offers a room-like feeling thanks to the high walls and the trees on the sides. It’s the stage reserved for up and coming artists, as well as after parties and DJs.



Swimming Pool

There’s still a better way to start a summer day than a dive at a swimming pool with a cocktail and some sick tunes and kickass artists performing by the side. This combo takes place every year in Barcelos for Milhões de Festa, and the swimming pool is one of the highlights of the festival.


Taina stage

Some pleasures in life are so simple and obvious that turn out frequently overlooked. Since we love eating, and we have to do it, Taina stage offers you a bold lineup with a side-menu of the best regional delicacies, from wine to all kinds of meat (vegies, be assured you’ll be eating cruelty free food as well).



All narratives are extended through days and nights, and the tale of Milhões de Festa is no different. What starts at noon, must not end at sunset. Milhões goes almost from dawn to dawn, and all nights will take place in the prescinct, where headliners, three stages (Milhões, and Lovers), a food court and various chillout areas provide the kind of fun Lionel Richie would approve of, with a intimate and cosy feel to it: all night long, baby.


Milhões de Festa’s free camping spot is located in Parque da Cidade, situated in the centre of Barcelos and near the festival precinct. The park is completely surrounded by a green and relaxing scenery, appropriate for Nature-gazing and relaxing. There’s a ‘round-the-clock security team, hot water showers, bathrooms and the best high-maintenance conditions for every festival goer at Pavilhão Municipal, inside Parque da Cidade. Camping opens on the 6th at 2:30PM.

1-day ticket holders will be allowed to use the camping site for during the day correspondent to the ticket (i.e. tickets for the 7th will grant access to the camping site from the 7th to the 8th).
