Lagoa Jazz Fest`2023 kicks off this weekend, from July 21 to 23, at the Municipal Park Sítio das Fontes de Estômbar.

In its XVIII edition, Lagoa Jazz Fest will have Camille Bertault, who Vanity Fair highlights as the “new voice of jazz” and Le Figaro as a “daring talent”, alongside names like Polly Gibbons, who performs with the Orquestra de Jazz do Algarve, under the direction of Hugo Alves. Resuming Lagoa Jazz Fest’s commitment to the diversity of aesthetics and instrumentations, more or less conventional in jazz, this year’s poster features two unavoidable names of the accordion, João Barradas and Vincent Peirani, and Suite Nordeste, a trio of Brazilian musicians admittedly inspired by the mixture of styles and influences between Brazilian popular music, classical and jazz.

Projects with some of its best performers of harp, koto, harmonica, cimbalom, bandoneon, vibraphone, among others, will also be presented. Among solos, duos, trios, 4tets, 5tets and Big Band. According to the Municipality of Lagoa, since 2003, more than 250 musicians from countries such as Portugal, Spain, the United States of America, France, Italy, Austria, Brazil, Argentina, Japan, Colombia or India have passed through the Sítio das Fontes Municipal Park.

Tickets for each day of the event cost € 12 and are already available at the ticket offices of the Municipality of Lagoa, namely at the Convento de S. José, Municipal Auditorium Carlos do Carmo and Balcão Único, with a 20% discount with cultural passport, Lagoa Social card or Rota do Petisco 2022 Passport, when purchased at these ticket offices. You can also purchase at:, at the venue, during the days of the event, as well as in the usual places (CTT, Fnac and Worten).

The Lagoa Jazz Fest’2023 venue opens at 19h00 and closes at 01h00. Performances in the lounge area will start at 20h30 and on the main stage at 22h00. In addition to the performance areas, there will be a restaurant area and an exhibition area.

The Municipality of Lagoa informs that, initially, it announced that the singer Jane Monheit would be the guest artist who would perform with the Algarve Jazz Orchestra. However, due to a health issue, Jane Monheit’s arrival had to be canceled. The singer will be replaced by Polly Gibbons. Tickets already purchased for July 21 will remain valid. However, anyone wishing to refund the money spent on the ticket purchase will be refunded, the municipality said in a statement.
