Queima Week here in Portugal

Our post today is about university students’ favourite week – Queima week. It’s a bunch of concerts during a week when the students from Porto’s University can get together in a specific place called Queimódromo. During those seven days every faculty is represented with a tent where there is some food and drinks.

It’s in Matosinhos, a beautiful by the beach city where you can walk and have amazing meals during the day time. There you can have a blast and party all night long with the amazing selected artists, portuguese and foreign.

So, these are the artists performing in Queima this year:

Sunday: Brazilian singer Daniela Mercury and Portuguese bands The Gift and D.A.M.A


Monday: Jamaican musician Anthony B and Portuguese rapper Dengaz


Tuesday: Portuguese pop singer (aka pimba) Quim Barreiros, who performs every year


Wednesday: three Angolan people – B4 Los Compadres, a duo, and Anselmo Ralph


Thursday: rock day with Portuguese bands The Walks and Xutos e Pontapés


Friday: electronic day with Djs Mike Hawkins and Blasterjaxx


Saturday: Portuguese band We Trust and the amazing James Arthur


And that’s all for today! We hope you guys have a great weekend, we’ll give you more news soon!
