Minister of Economy and Sea inaugurates Fatacil

This year, the fair grounds were expanded, allowing for more than 8 daily visitors

António Costa Silva, Minister of Economy and the Sea, will inaugurate the 41st edition of FATACIL, which will take place on August 19, at 19:00 pm, in the Municipal Park of Fairs and Exhibitions in Lagoa.

With a strong artistic lineup, the event features the following concerts: Expensive Soul (19), Gipsy Kings, by Diego Baliardo (20), João Pedro Pais (21), ProfJam (22), Quim Barreiros (23), Plutónio (24 ), Bárbara Bandeira (25), Resistance (26), Fernando Daniel (27) and Tony Carreira (28).

In addition to the Fatacil stage, this year's edition brings a novelty with the introduction of a secondary stage (the Lagoa Stage) in the restaurant area. On this second stage, usually reserved for folkloric performances, there will be various musical genres, with music by local artists, from sunset to 22pm.

In addition to the two stages, there will always be street entertainment by the group Next Combo and Al Fanfare.

The official opening of Fatacil is scheduled for 19:00 pm on Friday, the 19th, and there will be no shortage of news: from the outset with the enlargement of the venue, which will now be able to receive 8 more people than in 2019 and with the Municipality stand which will have a new location and concept, functioning as a living space, with the dissemination of new projects and local products.

The daily ticket costs 4 euros, the family daily ticket 14 euros and the 10-day pass 25 euros.
