Galp Music Valley takes national and international names to the City of Rock
Non-stop stage Galp Music Valley presents special concerts by national and international artists at Rock in Rio Lisboa
National and international artists, from rock to pop and funk to electronics, will pass by the non-stop stage of Rock in Rio Lisboa, where up-and-coming talents and established artists perform in special concerts.
Names like Incubus, Delfins, Ney Matogrosso, Bárbara Tinoco, Plutónio and Giulia Be are included in the mega program.
Dedicated to those who value urban life, sharing experiences and respecting the environment, Rock in Rio Lisboa offers Galp Music Valley with 14 non-stop hours per day.
After the successful debut in 2018, with 4 sold-out sessions, and a reach of more than 3 million people, Galp Music Valley returns to the City of Rock even more vibrant and international.
Over the four days of the event, this stage will ensure 14 hours of music per day non-stop, in a varied program that has more than 30 performances.
The performances started at 12:00 and the participants will be able to enjoy all the Somersby pool parties, parties, DJ sets and concerts that bring together one of the newest voices of today such as IZA, Bárbara Tinoco, El Columpio Asesino, Plutónio and Giulia Be.
For Artur Peixoto, Artistic Director of Galp Music Valley “the fact that we bring together concerts, parties, live acts and DJ sets on the same stage is what allows us to create a different artistic proposal for Galp Music Valley, bringing it together in a single space people, and artists, from different universes, who express themselves differently, but who speak the same language”.
Noting that the entire area surrounding this stage will be “a space very focused on sustainability, human relations and healthy fun”, Joana Garoupa, Director of Marketing and Communication, underlines Galp’s alignment with these principles. “These are values that embody, at heart, the motto ‘Today is a good day to change’, which Galp adopted to mobilize society around these issues“.
Healthy food, hug cam, a pianist on the lawn that will make everyone sing together, collective percussion presentation or tips and suggestions for urban, healthy and sustainable attitudes are just some of the contents that materialize the concept of this space.
“More than a stage, Galp Music Valley is a space where we can live music in various ways throughout the day, and where we want to bring together people who value life in urban centers, but who understand that for an improvement in the quality of life, and to preserve what we most like to do, it is essential to live in a society harmonized with each other and with the planet. And in that, Rock in Rio and Galp are 100% aligned ”, explains Roberta Medina, Executive Vice President of Rock in Rio.
