From 13 August to 13 September, Largo da Sé, in Vila Adentro, in Faro, hosts ‘Noites F’, a celebration of Festival F in 20 music, humor and magic shows.
Between the opening night, with Diogo Piçarra, and the closing night, with Miguel Araújo, there is humor with César Mourão, Herman José and Salvador Martinha; magic with Luís de Matos; and lots of music: from the pops of Aurea, Agir, DAMA and Fernando Daniel, to the heavy metal of the Moonspell or the hip-hop of Piruka, passing by the special shows, in duet, by Tiago Nacarato & Bárbara Tinoco and Carolina Deslandes & Jimmy P, until the concerts of António Zambujo, Os Quatro e Meia, Pedro Abrunhosa, Sérgio Godinho, The Black Mamba and Xutos & Pontapés, these 20 shows celebrate the reunion between the public and the artists, with their eyes set on the F of Future.
In the impossibility of hosting the Festival F in 2020, which in recent years has been consolidating the mission of revealing some new talents of Portuguese music and consecrating as many artists on the rise, Noites F presents an eclectic poster, inspired by the programming line of various stages that usually make up the festival, maintaining and respecting its diversity and scope. The shows always start at 10 pm and tickets are already on sale in the usual places.
It is recalled that in its last edition, in 2019, Festival F, the last major summer festival, took place on the 5th, 6th and 7th of September and brought to Vila Adentro close to 60,000 people, of which 24,000 on the night of the meeting of Ornatos Violeta, on the 20th anniversary of the edition of the seminal album “The Monster Needs Friends”, which sold out.
On ‘Noites F’, the 20 shows that symbolically celebrate Festival F will take place only at Largo da Sé, which traditionally hosts the Sé Stage, with the remaining stages and spaces of the festival, Quintalão, Museum, Ria, Fábrica, Formosa, Sé cloisters, among others, waiting for 2021 to start receiving music, fine arts, workshops, new circus, theater, humor and gatherings, in a rich and diversified program that has continued to grow over 6 editions.
The media partners Rádio Comercial and TVI have, in recent years, taken Festival F to those who cannot travel to Vila Adentro, in Faro, through permanent coverage of everything that happens in these 3 days of the biggest music festival and Portuguese culture.
In 2020 they will be present at ‘Noites F’, helping to keep the spirit of Festival F alive, at a time when artists and the Portuguese most need culture and entertainment to face the challenges brought by the pandemic positively and with hope.
‘Noites F’ are an initiative of the Municipality of Faro, the Municipal Theater of Faro, S.M., Ambifaro and the producer Sons em Trânsito.
