APRIL 10th – 13th | WESTWAY LAB FESTIVAL

WESTWAY LAB FESTIVAL, PORTUGAL’S FIRST SHOWCASE FESTIVAL, AND PROFESSIONAL MUSIC CONFERENCE WILL TAKE PLACE FOR THE SIXTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR FROM 10TH TO 13TH OF APRIL IN GUIMARÃES.

Founded in 2014 with a clear mission: to operate a cultural, social and economic transformation through music, crossing borders enabling the construction of sustainable internationalization of artists and professionals from Portugal. During the 4 day event, Guimarães becomes a music city, combining in an innovative way the realization of an event based with three dimensions: Process (artist residencies), Thought (PRO Conferences) and Product (showcases and headline concerts).

After the biggest ever edition (the 5th), with 28 Concerts, Artistic Residencies, PRO Conferences and Talks, Westway LAB brings together once again the public, artists, and professionals from the music industry, all in Guimarães. It is in this path that Westway LAB will continue to be an international territory of creation, networking, and enjoyment in the universe of music.

According to Rui Torrinha, artistic director of the festival, “continuing to think about the cosmos from this unique place has made of Westway LAB a powerful world of possibilities on a human scale, in which the time and space generated have allowed us to recover the original meaning of the word … quality. Not everything here can be said, to discover it and let yourself be discovered but do not miss out, because the spirit is of inclusion.”
