OUT.FEST 2024: first names + extra day

The first names for the twentieth anniversary of OUT.FEST, which returns to Barreiro between October 2nd and 6th, are already out, with Sunday afternoon also being added to the previously announced programme.

On the national scene, three premieres stand out at OUT.FEST: the opening performance A Viagem d’Os Heróis Indianos Romanos Africanos, coordinated by Alan Courtis in collaboration with the Associação Nós, a powerful testimony to the power of music in social inclusion and the unique contributions of neurodivergence to artistic creation; Nu No, challenges linguistic and musical conventions in a sonic universe resistant to categorizations; and Alfredo Costa Monteiro, a discreet figure but with a significant role in the panorama of European sound explorations.

Among the premieres in Portugal, we highlight the American duo Armand Hammer, bringing with them the incisive and acclaimed album 'We Buy Diabetic Test Strips'; Donna Candy, a trio of esoteric noise rock based in Brussels and Marseille; Speaker Music, a project by DeForrest Brown Jr., proposing a bold critique of social structures, inspired by Afrofuturism and the history of Techno; and the French artist Eve Aboulkheir, presenting her phantasmagorical world of electroacoustic and modular manipulations and immersions, recently praised by notables such as Jim O’Rourke.

To conclude this first batch of confirmations, Nazar redefines Kuduro, exploring its social implications by revisiting the traumas of the Angolan civil war; the prodigious young saxophonist Zoh Amba performs a rare solo concert; and the Japanese composer FUJI|||||||||||TA brings a new album guided by his idiosyncratic pipe organ designed and built to his specifications.

You can now purchase your pass at the current price of €40 (limited tickets) via BOL and at the ticket offices of FNAC, Worten or CTT throughout Portugal.
