The proposal for this year seeks, therefore, to respect the pertinence of offering the combination of eclectic sounds and a diverse and dynamic musical culture and genre with the recognition and status in contemporary artistic practice, in a physical environment of great monumental and environmental singularity.
The Festival's role is also an opportunity to give life to the cultural heritage of Lagoa, highlighting not only the effort that the cultural program of the municipality reveals, but equally the stimulus and the mood manifested, contributing to regional pride and enthusiasm.
