At 9.30pm, there will be musical performances by Prio and Hilaria Kramer, Trio Filipe Sequeira, José Santos and Ricardo Lopes, Duo Ouro Branco and Les Rockeurs.

Saturday will include three new attractions, including puppet show ‘O Caçador’ by João Costa, an experimental dance session by Marion Bedbur, and a painting and drawing event led by Carla Ribeiro.

Finally, LAC’s resident bands Pulso, The Quest, Projecto 103 and Prayers of Sanity will be playing from 9.30pm.
