The festival came to an end, Ivandro, Lon3r Johny & Plutonio, Matias Damásio, Bateu Matou, Regula, and Excesso were the highlights of the main stage, but Jéssica Pina, Rita Laranjeira, Ena Pá 2000 and Pedro Mafama also shone on their stages.
The Festival opened with dancing, which enlivened the audience on the MATRIZAUTO stage, where Jazzy, Clarah Helen and Jazzy & Johny Berry performed.
The RED TAZZ Stage received Jéssica Pina, who with a more intimate concert, took her music to the public of Sol, one of the best concerts that we can see at the Festival, the last one, had some of the best concerts on this stage, Rita Laranjeira, was also at a great level, in the company of an excellent band and dancers, conquered the very public that was present, the concerts of Da Chick and Vitor Kley, join the highlights of the festival, Tontos and Kura complete the selection of artists on this stage to the last day.
The KAVI stage received Ena Pá 2000, which as always filled the stage with social criticism but also with great joy, in a concert not suitable for minors, with very serious and scathing lyrics, Pedro Mafama, the phenomenon of social networks and radio, had a full venue, even managed to “steal” the public and the media, from the renowned Regula, who was at the same time on the main stage, animated all those present who accompanied him from beginning to end, Rita Rocha, who promises so much, had a performance a little faded, maybe her nerves have betrayed her a little, we’ve seen her with better performances, Supa Squad and Pérola complete the concerts on this stage, with the Angolan singer once again bringing all her energy, joy, and African rhythms to the fore from the stage, dazzling a crowded venue that came to see her.
The DOM TÁPPARO stage, had another great day of excellent music, Ivandro, Lon3r Johny & Plutonio, Matias Damásio, Bateu Matou, Regula e Excesso.
Bateu Matou, after last year, has been on the secondary stage, this year it had the honor of opening the main stage, and what an opening it was, the percussion invites you to dance and the music of Bateu Matou is joyful, and the rhythm to dance and celebrate, from start to finish, Lon3r Johny & Plutonio, who closed the main stage and Regula, conquered the audience from the first beat and kept them hooked until the end.
Ivandro and Matias Damásio no longer need words to describe them, each concert is unique, full of magic, emotion, and broken hearts, of fans who sing with them all the songs that vibrate with each poem, at Sol da Caparica it was no different.
After the concerts in Lisbon and Porto, Excesso were also present at Sol da Caparica and showed once again all their magic on stage, and an enormous joy for being together on stage again, and the public cannot resist them, cherished from the beginning to end, by an audience of all ages, who know all the songs and choreographies, they gave an epic concert in Caparica.
The concert also had a surprise, on the birthday of Zahir Assanali, CEO of the Chiado Group and according to Excesso, the great mentor of the project and the return of the “Boys” Band, there was a cake on stage and congratulations sung by Excesso but also by the thousands who attended the concert.

If last year, many criticisms were made of the Festival, its organization, and the means available, not only by journalists, and artists but mainly by the public that paid to be present, this year I think there can be only praise, a great festival where was rectified, which had not gone well the previous year, with excellent concerts, in Portuguese, O Sol da Caparica 2023 a memorable edition, come more like this. Congratulations to the organization and to all those who collaborated with it.
