OUT.FEST announces full line-up

The Portuguese festival’s 14th edition features Pere Ubu, Lolina, Bookworms, Coletivo Vandalismo, and more

The final line-up has been announced for the 14th edition of Barreiro's OUT.FEST. The four dayer’s opening concert featuring Porto composer Jonathan Uliel Saldanha will take place in the new festival venue Santa Maria Church – the 30th space OUT.FEST has used since its inception in 2004. The municipality workers’ senior and junior choirs, Carol Tab and Coro Be Voice, will also be performing at the church. The complete line-up is Caterina Barbieri, Charlemagne Palestine, Quarteto De Sei Miguel, Pere Ubu (The Moon Unit), Casa Futuro, Lolina, This Is Not This Heat, Jejuno, Bookworms, Coletivo Vandalismo, Simon Crab, Alex Zhang Hungtai with David Maranha & Gabriel Ferrandini, Dj Nigga Fox, Black Dice, Dj Problemas, Nocturnal Emissions, Gyur Putas, and Bêbadas.

“As you can guess we're very happy with it,” beams festival organiser Rui Pedro Dâmaso, talking about the line-up. “It's quite the mix between influencers and new blood, and some bands we'd been wanting to have in Barreiro for quite some time and never had the chance to make it happen.”

OUT.FEST runs between 4–7 October. Tickets start at just €8, and shuttle buses are available from Lisbon and surrounding areas. More information can be found at OUT.FEST’s website.
