Portimão has unveiled a three-day programme which will include three concerts at the town’s riverfront, all starting at 10pm.
Portuguese rapper Piruka will be the first to take the stage on Thursday, December 29, followed by Angolan singer-songwriter Matias Damásio on Friday, December 30.
Entertainment on New Year’s Eve will be provided by DJ Noise Tribe as well as Mercury Falls, a Queens tribute band which will be performing all of the beloved hits by the legendary British rock band.
There will also be fireworks to delight crowds along the Portimão and Alvor riverfronts and at Praia da Rocha near the marina.
The concerts are free to attend and are being funded by the organisers of the Rolling Loud, Afro Nation e Secret Project festivals as part of a partnership with Portimão Council which allowed them to hold the events on the beach at Praia da Rocha.
