"Contemporary music, which we identified as urban," he said in statements to Lusa.
The performances will be divided by "five different spaces" within the Estoril Congress Center, one of which is an auditorium, with seats.
In an "open, wide" space will work a 'silent disk' [discoteca silenciosa, em português]. There will be two DJs per day – Sheru Vari and Nuria on Saturday, and Progressivu and DJ Respeito on Sunday. "We pass by and we do not hear anything, only if we get the phones, and we can choose to listen to one of them," explained Karla Campos.
Of the 25 artists that make up the poster, the promoter points out: Madlib, "artist and producer who inspires the latest names in hip-hop and soul and which debuts live in Portugal," the Little Dragon, -pop, "Kamaal Williams," in a jazz / hip-hop style, Arca, "who by the way he sings and DJs and his clothes is a performer par excellence", IAMDDB, "clearly hip-hop, r & b and also a headliner, "and, closing the main stage, Hunee," a Korean living in Berlin Hunee, which features techno electronic sets very involved with harmony of the disc and soul, "and Pearson Sound," admittedly techno ".
