Festas do Mar - Cascais
The only free Summer Festival in Portugal returns to the nearest Atlantic stage. Cascais Bay receives this year one of the best posters ever of the Festas do Mar, with names like Virgul, Jorge Palma & Sergio Godinho, Anselmo Ralph, Paulo Gonzo, Ana Moura, Ana Victoria, Fernando Daniel, Amor Theo or The Gift . The festival ends with the reunion of the Delfins after 10 years of separation.
This year's Festas do Mar has an eclectic program that goes from pop rock to fado, from symphonic music to soul music.
The opening is in charge of Virgul and, from here, the nights will be long with the duo Jorge Palma & Sérgio Godinho, the rhythm of Anselmo Ralph, the ballads of Fernando Daniel who invites the ÁTOA, the Brazilian pop of the duo AnaVitória, while The Gift will put "the bay singing".
Fado is already part of the DNA of the Holidays and comes to us through the voice of Ana Moura.
For the last night a special concert was reserved: after 10 years of separation, the Delfins are reunited purposely for the Festas do Mar. The concert has two parts, the first being held by several guest musicians (Ana Bacalhau, Héber Marques, Joana Espadinha, João Pedro Pais, Maria Leon, Miguel Gameiro, Olavo Bilac and Tim) who, accompanied by the Cascais Symphony, directed by conductor Nicolay Lalov, will interpret the great themes of the Delfins.
In the second part will be the Delfins themselves who, also accompanied by the Cascais Symphony, will make this night a memorable one. The firework in the bay closes the Feasts of the Sea.
As always, the traditional Procession of Our Lady of Navegantes takes place at 3 pm on the 18th (Sunday).
