Last Friday, on the 24th of February, in Hard Rock Café Porto, Nova Era held a press conference to announce the nominees for their “Melhores Do Ano” prizes, set to be awarded on the 1st of April at the “Nova Era Melhores Do Ano” festival in the Rosa Mota Pavilion located in Oporto.
The press conference started off with a speech from Música No Coração power man Luis Montez. The businessman made sure he reminded the audience that this is the only musical award-giving event in Portugal and it has been going for 20 years now, having started in 1996. The patriotism is more present than ever as there are more national awards that there has ever been. Mr. Montez has also pointed out that there will be a “powerful stage”, something you can know more about in a Wide Future interview with him yet to be released.
After a video package that left everybody in the room hyped it was time for the Porto Lazer representative Nuno Lemos to take on the mic. The “Cidade Invicta” big name made huge compliments to Nova Era and assured that it has been a pleasure to work with such a brilliant team. Nova Era events in Porto are, certainly, set to carry on for years.
The last speaker was one of Nova Era’s top names, Silvia Braga. She had a more in depth view of the micro festival and revealed the nominees for the prizes. While revealing the names, Silvia may have left some hints related to some DJ’s that may be on the Nova Era Beach Party card. Make sure you check out our interview with Silvia Braga for previews of the festivals, hints at future confirmations and more!
Nova Era Melhores Do Ano is bound to be yet another great event with names like DVBBS, Kura, DJ Bl3nd, Karetus, Beatbombers, Ninja Kore and more.
It was a wonderful event that was capped off by a Mundo Segundo live act and something that leaves us anxiously waiting for the next Nova Era events.
