The Municipality of Barcelos and Lovers & Lollypops, partners and co-producers of the Milhões de Festa festival since 2010, agreed not to hold the festival in 2019, deferring to 2020 the tenth edition of this collaboration. This decision has been announced today.
Here is what the organizers have to say:
“After nine uninterrupted editions, the municipality and the company believe the time has come to think about the role that the event holds in the Portuguese scene and, based on this, redefine its mission and strategy. It is a break that takes into account the success of the nine editions held in Barcelos and in no way compromises the work and history of the event that should be remembered, which promoted the Portuguese premiere of names like Electric Wizard, Alt-J, Connan Mockasin, Squarepusher, Graveyard, Jacco Gardner Boogarins, Earthless, Shame, Michael Rother Sons of Kemet, The Comet is Coming, FaUSt & Gnod, Nubya Garcia, among many others.
The Municipality of Barcelos and Lovers & Lollypops are committed to make Barcelos and Milhões de Festa obligatory references for music lovers, curious people, promising to return with redoubled strength and energy.
The co-producers of the Festival cannot ignore the chance to thank the public, artists, partners, sponsors and all who were associated with this festival Minho style in the way of Milhões de Festa and made it possible for over nine years, greeting everyone with “be right back”!”
