The final poster and latest novelties of the 16th edition of the MED Festival will be presented on May 25, at 9.30 pm at Cine-Teatro Louletano. After the sessions in the Lisbon Tourism Exchange, Café Calcinha and Capitólio, this will be another moment in which the organization of the event intends to communicate some news but, above all, to gather the audience that follows this event, artists, agents and entities that are linked to the MED Festival.
At this moment in which the last two names are announced that close the musical alignment of the main stages of the MED, will play at the Cine-Teatro the group Fogo Fogo, which confirms its presence in the 2020 edition.
Fogo Fogo, the project of Francisco Rebelo (bass), João Gomes (keys), Márcio Silva (drums), Danilo Lopes and David Pessoa (voices / guitar) has stirred the Lisbon dance floor with uncontrollable energy. The band is an urgent manifestation of a culture that, like a volcano, is about to explode. The musicians involved are ultra-savvy, keen connoisseurs of the many African-inspired grooves and the funanás and the African party ball music were thrown as if 1987 had been the day before yesterday. And in this context they assume the most primordial of the missions: to do dance without tricks, only with energy of loaded bpms, with the drums and the bass in permanent skid and the sounds inspired in the "gaita" (the concertina) to command the melodic identity.
Fire Fire may well be the event of the year that no one has yet discovered. But after the eruption nothing will stay the same …
The show will be presented by Raquel Bulha and Edgar Canelas, two well-known voices from radio and television and who have been present throughout the years at the MED Festival.
The tickets have a single price of 5 euros and can be purchased on-site or at www.bol.pt
