Sounds of Summer liven Lisboa

© VisitLisboa
In August, the city's events calendar is filled with hundreds of cultural and musical events that liven Lisboa's public gardens, museums and historic neigbourhoods.

Once again, the prestigious Jazz in August festival, organized by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, brings historical figures and new trends of this genre to the Portuguese capital. The 29th edition of this event runs from August 3 to 12 with six concerts at the Foundation's Open Air Amphitheatre and film sessions, extending out to Teatro do Bairro (Bairro Alto) for more concerts. You can also listen to jazz at Ajuda Botanical Gardens (JBA) where visitors are invited to spend their evenings to the sound of great music from August 2 to 30.

There are also Choral Visits in Mouraria, which take visitors on a tour of this neighborhood with strong links to Fado, accompanied by the voices of its singers.

Right next door in Martim Moniz, other musical genres liven the Lisboa's most multiethnic public square. On Thursdays & Fridays from 3pm to 10pm and Saturdays from 3pm to midnight, DJ's liven up the square and get you in a party mood for the weekend.

And until September, the gardens of Principe Real and Campolide, Largo do Intendente, Reservatorio Mãe d'Agua and Alameda D. Afonso Henriques are just some of the city's public spaces that become the perfect settings to listen to the works of the most classical composers, through to jazz and pop, that form part of the "Lisboa na Rua" (Lisboa on the Streets) Festivities calendar.
