Since 2004, OUT.FEST has brought to Barreiro music which is new, challenging, unclassifiable, original.
Over thirty venues throughout the city have welcomed, over the course of these 15 years, several hundred artists from every continent, representing different generations, aesthetics, and conceptions of Music and Sound as forms of expression and of profound personal and social transformation.
In a logical extension of the 2018 edition, the 2019 edition will see a continued effort to embrace the heart of the city and fill it with singular sounds in a format that promotes ever deeper exploration.
Over the course of three days, the festival will welcome 26 performances by musicians from Portugal, Brazil, Spain, the United States, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Switzerland, Egypt and Tanzania, through the increasingly blurred (and progressively less Important) boundaries between jazz, rock, improvisation, hip-hop, noise, urban, electronic and contemporary music, through an entire world of possibilities which are meant to be explored and witnessed NOW.
Three days celebrating Music as adventure and exploration, and Barreiro as a stage for gestures of bravery, nonconformity and generosity.
