The 21st of June marks the beginning of the “Festim” festival, already in its fifth annual edition. This intermunicipal world music festival takes place in 5 different portuguese cities: Águeda, Albergaria-a-Velha, Sever do Vouga, Estarreja e Aveiro.
Up until the 26th of July, the stage is taken by some of the best well-known names in the world music scene, such as Rabi Abou-Khalil (Lebanon), Wazimbo (Mozambique), Susheela Raman (India), D’Callaos (Spain), The Klezmatics (USA) e H’Sao (Chad).
As the sole portuguese member of the “European Forum of Worldwide Music Festivals”, Festim plays a bigger role each year in promoting the country, with its unique lineup compromised by internationally acclaimed artists - based on a single network shared between the participating cities - and ever growing fanbase, all wrapped up in a true celebration of cultural diversity.
