The country’s first music festival, still considered Portugal’s “Woodstock”, took place in 1971 in Vilar de Mouros, after an eight-year interregnum between 2006 and 2014.

Like so many other music festivals in Portugal, Vilar de Mouros did not take place in 2020 and 2021 due to restrictions imposed to combat the covid-19 pandemic.

The first edition in 1971, launched by physician António Barge, saw the participation of Elton John and Manfred Mann, among others.

A pass for the four days of the festival costs 120 euros, and for days 24, 25 and 26 90 euros. Day tickets cost 45 euros.
