The New Year's Eve celebrations return once again to the municipality of Vila Real de Santo António, especially to the beach of Monte Gordo, where there will be lots of music, a selection of dj and fireworks.

The animation will start on the day December 29, saturday, on the waterfront of Monte Gordo, with a series of concerts starting at 22 pm. On that day, the groups «Grab it Band» and «The Sun» will take to the stage. From 1:00 am, the night is reserved for dj Bruno Lourenço and Flip d'Palm.

Already December 30, on Sunday, the night starts with the «Allmariados», at 22:00, while at 23:30 the stage belongs to the band "Uns & Outros". At 01:00 am, the sound booth is at the controls of the «Smash» project.

On December 31sto, monday, also in Monte Gordo, the celebrations of the longest night of the year begin at 22:00, with the «Duo Reflexo», which will animate the thousands of visitors until very close to midnight.

When the twelve chimes strike, the new year begins with fireworks in the Bay of Monte Gordo. In the early hours of 2013, the stage, installed on Avenida Marginal, will be animated by the already mythical Algarve band «Íris», which promises to bring generations together in a concert that will not lack animation and many of the mandatory themes that have dictated the success of the formation throughout the years old.

From 2:00 onwards, the dance floor opens, with sound controls in charge of the dj/producer «Rosabrava» (by Guadiprod). Night out, dj «Glowjack» will close the celebrations.

On December 31 the entertainment will also extend to Praça Marquês de Pombal, in Vila Real de Santo António, where the group «Cê Barros» will play from 22:30.

For Luís Gomes, Mayor of Vila Real de Santo António, the hundreds of tourists who come to the county on this occasion justify the commitment to another New Year's Eve programme, which is already one of the key events of the municipality, taking into account the good hotel occupancy rates generated over the past few years.

«Despite the necessary investment, we took into account the current reality and opted for a program that essentially uses local bands and DJs, which allowed us to have a smaller budget, while maintaining a poster of the same size and quality», concludes the mayor.
