About the event "Coala Festival "

On June 1st and 2nd, the Coala Festival crosses the Atlantic to hold its first edition outside of Brazil. The international debut will take place in Cascais, Portugal, and Gilberto Gil is already confirmed in the lineup.

"The Coala Festival was born in 2014 with the proposal of being a great stage for new Brazilian music in a context where most festivals focused on international artists and bands. We became a reference in Brazil and now we will take this identity to Portugal, focusing not only on Brazilian music but on Portuguese language music as a whole, uniting the ends of the triangle Africa, Portugal, and Brazil," comments Gabriel Andrade, co-founder and curator of the Coala Festival.

The proposal of this first Portuguese edition is to broaden horizons and deliver a lineup that combines Brazilian music with Lusophone music. For this, in addition to Gabriel Andrade, the Coala Festival Portugal also has the curatorship of Kalaf Epalanga - Angolan musician and writer and one of the founders of the band Buraka Som Sistema, awarded with the MTV Europe Music Awards for three consecutive years in the category of Best Portuguese Artist.

More news about the Coala Festival Portugal will be announced soon.
