As summer officially begins in the Algarve, it’s almost time for the party that marks the occasion in Carvoeiro
– June 14, 2023
The Black and White Night in Carvoeiro is set to take place this Saturday (June 17), and will attract thousands of party-goers.
As always, Carvoeiro streets will be packed with people coming to enjoy live performances, entertainment, and DJ sets.
A unique feature of the event is that visitors are encouraged to dress in black and white, in keeping with Carvoeiro’s decorated streets.
Carvoeiro’s main streets will have several stages set up, namely Rua dos Pescadores, Rua do Barranco and Estrada do Farol, as well as at the main beach square, allowing visitors to see different performances.
This year’s musical programme features Bossa Nova singer Lídia Brandão, who will perform on stage 1 (Rua dos Pescadores) between 8.40pm and 9.20pm and 10.10pm and 10.50pm; chillout music act 2Sounds Project, which is set to take to stage 2 (Rua do Barranco) between 8.50pm and 9.30pm and 10.30pm and 11.10pm; Fado singer Tatiana Pinto, with two performances on stage 2 taking place from 9.40pm to 10.20pm and 11.20pm to midnight; and Ricardo Sousa Band, who will bring their covers of classic hits to stage 5 (Estrada do Farol) between 10.10pm and 11.30pm.
As for DJ performances, DJ Bruno Zarra will be leading the Sunset Experience at the local beach from 9pm to 11.50pm, while the duo of DJ Mark Guedes and saxophonist Mário Dias will be performing some of the best dance hits from the 1970s and 80s on stage 4 from 10.30pm to 2.30am.
Back at Carvoeiro beach, DJ Deelight will keep the party going alongside singer Nicole Silver from midnight to 1.30am, when DJ Overule and MC Landu Bi will take over and keep the party going until 3am.
The entertainment programme also features a Silent Party on stage 6, near the local church, from 9.30pm to 1.30am, and the screening of a “Black and White Movie – City Lights” at 10pm on stage 3.
There will also be a Kids Corner on Rua dos Pescadores which will be open from 9pm to midnight.
More than 30,000 people attended the last edition, which was a major success. The first edition of the Carvoeiro Black & White party was in 2014 with the goal of supporting the local economy and bringing a new attraction to the picturesque seaside town.
There will also be a free bus linking Carvoeiro to parking areas near Fatacil, Apolónia, Aldi, Intermarché and Gramital (car park near Aldi) between 6pm and 4am.
