In September, a new Music Festival is born, with a poster made up exclusively by artists residing in Greater Lisbon. 2 nights with 18 concerts on 3 stages.
Lisbon is a European city that lives off its multiculturalism. It was born from the perfect mixture of different cultures, genes and ethnicities, starting with the various peoples of the Portuguese diaspora. Lisbon is plural and composed by the different manifestations of the various peoples that inhabit it. Thus a single community is formed, owner of an enormous creative wealth that, as in the diaspora, leaves Lisbon for the world. And welcomes the World in Lisbon. From this identity a new Festival is born: o NOSSA LISBOA.
In 2020, Lisbon, a modern city with a busy and bustling cultural agenda, had to stop, just like the rest of the world. But 2021, it seems, will mark the beginning of the end of that stop, and culture and music have a fundamental role in this return to normality.
With the support of the City Council of Lisbon, this new Festival aims to represent the union, the brotherhood, the rhythms, the color, the joy and the sharing of customs of all races through music, starting from the strong connection of all these Portuguese-speaking communities residing in Greater Lisbon. Fado, mornas and coladeiras, funaná, kizomba and semba, marrabenta, samba and Nova Música do Brasil… These are the rhythms of the city that belongs to everyone, these are the rhythms of NOSSA LISBOA.
This is how, on September 10th and 11th, 2021, in the first edition of NOSSA LISBOA, the Altice Arena receives the rhythm of artists residing in Greater Lisbon, originating or with roots in the various communities of Portuguese-speaking countries. From young promises to established artists, the NOSSA LISBOA programming is made up of high quality and diversity, in line with the identity of the capital, and is distributed over three stages: Arena, Sala Tejo and Escadaria.
