Opened to the public at the end of 2018, Bloc 808, a newsworthy concept was born in Guimarães, the city where Portugal was born.
This idea came from two different persons, Mané Macedo and André Carvalho, better known as Xoura. Now, it contains, beyond Mané and Xoura, a great team dedicated to this remarkable idea.
The idea of a techno club in Guimarães had been tought for some time. However, it was difficult to find the perfect place for it and there was a huge risk of failure because, furthermore of being the first techno club in the city, the number of costumers was unknown and, as in all business, profit is always required.
Nevertheless, this concept is now a success. Just in a few months they acquire more than 2500 followers on social networks. The club works at Fridays and Saturdays. It always counts with the performing of Pitcher, the resident DJ. Beyond him, names like Moddular, Animal Picnic, Rekorder, Whitenoise and many others have already played there.
Nowadays there are many people that come from another cities around Guimarães just to visit the club and enjoy techno. For all techno lovers I recommend you to visit Bloc 808, it’s the perfect escape at the weekend from the work and studies and there you can interact with the others visitors or even the owners that are there just for one thing, appreciate pure techno.
By now the team’s bet is on national Djs, but in the near future maybe we will have some big techno names performing in the “Capital” of Portugal, just imagine that!
Bloc 808, a brilliant and unique concept that has everything to work out!
