Calema, Rui Veloso, Xutos & Pontapés, T-Rex, HMB and Capicua are some of the first artists confirmed for the O Sol da Caparica festival, from 15 to 18 August in Costa da Caparica, the organization announced today.

The festival is returning to the Costa da Caparica Urban Park, in the municipality of Almada, for its 9th edition and the first names were presented today at an event in Fonte da Telha.

This year’s line-up, which has yet to be finalized, will also include names such as L7NNON, Diego Miranda, Os Quatro e Meia, INSERT COIN, Padre Guilherme, MC Ryan SP, Cláudia Pascoal, Linda Martini, Bateu Matou, Karetus, IRMA, King Bigs, Bianca Barros, Rony Fuego, Maninho, GANSO, Celeste Mariposa, Fogo Fogo, Porbatuka, NAPA, Mura and Stereossauro, Luana do Bem, M.A.C. (Missão A Cumprir), Bué Tolo, José Pinhal Post-Mortem Experience, Gilsons, Magano, I LOVE BAILE FUNK and TNT.

For the next three years, the festival will be organized by a new consortium of two companies, with the municipality receiving a financial contribution of 123,000 euros, 41,000 for each year.

The event had been organized since 2019 by the Chiado Group, which also entered the competition, but from this year until 2026 it will be developed by the companies Domingo no Mundo and Music Mov, headed by André Sardet and António Gomes, together with the Almada City Council.

The organization assures that its objective over the next few editions is to work on redefining the values of the event and its role in society and the community, focusing on four central axes: Culture, Environment, Social Inclusion and Circular Economy.

At the presentation of the event, André Sardet explained that he intends to include more artists, environmental associations, associations that support disabled citizens and economic agents from the municipality of Almada in the structure and design of the festival.

“We want it to be the dream of four summer nights for everyone,” he said.

This year’s event has four stages: the Sea Stage, the Earth Stage, the Amphitheatre Stage and, for the first time, the Almada Stage, as a way of honoring not only culture and artists, but also the residents of the Almada region.

Speaking to the Lusa news agency, André Sardet explained that over the next three years the organization intends to implement a series of measures to mitigate the festival’s environmental impact, not only through production measures, but also through environmental practices at the venue, by promoting positive habits for the planet.

Tickets for O Sol da Caparica will go on sale from today at a cost of 28 euros per day or 78.50 euros for a four-day pass.

As usual since its first edition, residents of the municipality of Almada have a special price, and these tickets will be available for sale from July onwards, with proof of residence in the municipality, and limited to existing stock, at the Romeu Correia Forum and the Costa da Caparica Tourist Office.

August 18th is dedicated to children, with a program starting at 10:00 am, for a special price of three euros.

The venue closes at 2 p.m. and reopens at 4 p.m. for the continuation of the festival, with the program of the four stages.

There is also a four-day family pass (for two children and two adults, exclusively for Almada residents) for 150 euros.

For the mayor of Almada, Inês de Medeiros, Sol da Caparica has established itself as “the great meeting point for the celebration of the Portuguese language” and as a festival of reference.

“I was delighted to discover the program today and to see it reaffirmed. The expectation is that it will continue to maintain its special atmosphere because it is intergenerational, because it is in this extraordinary location, because it is on the beach and at the same time urban, because it is a meeting of those who speak the Portuguese language in all its variations and that it will have Almada’s own atmosphere of enjoying life while sharing the values of its matrix: inclusion, solidarity, the environment and quality of life,” said the mayor.
