Dreading the cancellation of your favorite festival? Fear not, as the Portuguese have figured out a clever solution.

The coronavirus is sadly here to stay, at least for a couple more weeks, and given the safety policies many governments have adopted against coronavirus, then it is safe to assume you’re stuck at home – and if you’re not, you definitely should. Shops, restaurants, museums, bars and every public establishment is mostly closed or under severe limitations to protect against COVID-19, and many festival organizations are taking decisive strides by either cancelling or postponing your favorite festival. Then what shall we festival goers do in the meantime?

A small group of people from Portugal have followed the steps of many individual artists that have streamed their content, and have organized an entire festival around that! It is called the “Festival Eu Fico em Casa” – translation: the “I’m staying at home festival” –  and it is an initiative that unites artists from all genres: Portuguese rappers, singers, bands and DJ’s have all joined forces to provide entertainment and sweet music vibes to those in their homes.

Starting tomorrow, March 17th, around 80 different artists will stream a 20min-30min live show for their fans on their own personal Instagram pages, all organized under the wing of the festival, with shows from the likes of David Fonseca, Fernando Daniel, Bispo, António Zambujo and more. As for dance music, we’ve got BRANKO, DJ Ride, Stereossauro, Moullinex and Xinobi representing our side of the music world. The performances will be featured until March 22nd, starting everyday from 5pm to 11pm GMT.

Tune in if you’re a fan of Portuguese music, or if you want to support this encouraging concept intended to ease the passing of time during the current adversities we face. So turn on your biggest sound system, video-chat your friends and get the party going!
