Black & White Night celebrates start of summer this Saturday
It’s almost time for the party that “(un)officially” marks the start of the summer season in the Algarve.
Carvoeiro’s Black and White Night will take place on Saturday (June 17), promising once again to pull thousands of revellers to the small beachside town.
Anyone who has attended the event will know what to expect, as the usual live performances, DJ sets and street entertainment have been confirmed by organisers.
Several stages are set up along the town’s main streets (Rua dos Pescadores, Rua do Barranco and Estrada do Farol) as well as at the main beach square, which allows visitors to explore the different areas of the event and choose the live performances that they prefer.
This year’s musical programme features Bossa Nova singer Lídia Brandão, who will perform at stage 1 on Rua dos Pescadores between 8.40pm and 9.20pm and 10.10pm and 10.50pm; chillout music act 2Sounds Project, which is set to take stage 2 on Rua do Barranco between 8.50pm and 9.30pm and 10.30pm and 11.10pm; Fado singer Tatiana Pinto, with two performances on stage 2 taking place from 9.40pm to 10.20pm and 11.20pm to midnight; and Ricardo Sousa Band, which will bring its covers of classic hits to stage 5 on Estrada do Farol between 10.10pm and 11.30pm.
There is also a long list of DJ performances to enjoy. DJ Bruno Zarra will be leading the Sunset Experience at the local beach from 9pm to 11.50pm, while the duo of DJ Mark Guedes and saxophonist Mário Dias will be performing some of the best dance hits from the 1970s and 80s on stage 4 on Estrada do Farol from 10.30pm to 2.30am.
Back at Carvoeiro beach, DJ Deelight will keep the party going alongside singer Nicole Silver from midnight to 1.30am, when DJ Overule and MC Landu Bi will take over and keep the party going until 3am.
The entertainment programme also features a Silent Party at stage 6 near the local church from 9.30pm to 1.30am, and the screening of a “Black and White Movie – City Lights” at 10pm at stage 3 on Estrada do Farol.
There will also be a Kids Corner on Rua dos Pescadores which will be open from 9pm to midnight.
What also makes the event stand out is that visitors are highly encouraged to dress in black and white in line with the town’s streets which are also stylishly decorated, helping create a unique visual experience throughout Carvoeiro.
Last year’s edition was a major success, having attracted over 30,000 people to the town.
The event was launched in 2014 with the goal of supporting the local economy and bring a new attraction to the picturesque seaside town.
The council is once again providing a free bus linking Carvoeiro to parking areas near Fatacil, Apolónia, Aldi, Intermarché and Gramital (car park near Aldi) between 6pm and 4am.
