"Since its first edition, back in 2014, Festival F has been designed to close summertime. It had to be something that brought visibility to Faro, to be integrated into the old city, where it is developed, and it was thought within these premises, from which the appreciation of what is ours is also highlighted. From our heritage, through the old city, to our culture and people, and to our music. In this sense, Festival F has always been, and still is, a Portuguese music festival."
Rogério Bacalhau, Mayor of Faro
Festival F is a cultural initiative that brings together established and emerging artists of Portuguese music, for 3 days, in the city of Faro. It also has a broader component of programming in other areas with the convocation of workshops, stand up comedy, plastic and performing arts, and also the components of handicrafts and street-food.
The Vila Adentro, Faro's historical nucleus, makes the Festival F the most beautiful festival venue in Portugal, as it combines the historical heritage with the proximity to the Ria Formosa Natural Park and the magnificence of the Fábrica da Cerveja (an old factory building). A unique and irreplaceable location!
Festival F is an initiative of Câmara Municipal de Faro, Teatro das Figuras, Ambifaro and Sons em Trânsito.
