Several surprises are foreseen in a night full of great songs and great emotions!

Love does not end in dozens of roses and heart-shaped boxes of chocolates. And it’s ready to serve again!
The biggest surprise of this edition of the Biggest Music Festival on Valentine’s Day, two new concerts, exclusive and in unlikely places: AnaVitória make their debut at Montepio À Vezes o Amor in a fado house and Luísa Sobral returns to the festival to perform in one of the most dazzling palaces of the century. XIX.
The duo AnaVitória, one of the hottest Brazilian bands today, finally returns to Portugal and in a format never seen before. In an intimate, acoustic and candlelit register in one of the most charismatic houses of fado in Lisbon, Ana Clara and Vitória Falcão will offer an unrepeatable Valentine’s Day to a very limited number of lovers! It will be at the Clube de Fado, 14 de Fevereiro, with dinner from 20:00 and a concert at 22:00.
On Saturday, the 15th, Invicta will host an exclusive Montepio À Vezes o Amor concert. Luísa Sobral will receive us and present her songs in an intimate register, as if from her living room. It will be in what was considered ‘the most luxurious’ house in Porto in the 19th century, the Palacete Silva Monteiro – Casa do Vinho Verde, located in the city centre and with stunning views of the Douro. The concert starts at 10 pm.
6th Edition MONTEPIO SOMETIMES O LOVE
Why is there no love without clichés? Because love clichés are good. Comfort. They heat up inside. And because they are good and comfortable and warm inside, they are repeated. That’s why they are clichés.
The Montepio À Vezes o Amor festival is a cliché because it has been repeated since 2015. But it is a cliché of the good ones: it spreads love all over the country, with bigger names in Portuguese music. So far, it has brought emotions to more than 60 thousand people. And 2020 again promises a lot. Like the best vows of love.
In 2020, Valentine’s Day will be celebrated on February 14th. Another cliché. Montepio À Vezes o Amor takes place on the 14th and 15th, with the heart being played and sung in many Portuguese cities. Namely by newcomers to the festival. Namely: Dead Combo, GNR, Carolina Deslandes, Marco Rodrigues, Black Mamba, Viviane (singing Édith Piaf) and the band from the film Variações.
