Guadiana International Music Festival

Guadiana International Music Festival - October 19th to 21st 

Most sailors who have visited the Algarve will know about the tranquility of a trip 'up river' to Alcoutim and Sanlucar de Guadiana. For the last 5 years that tranquility disappears for a few days whilst the amazing music festival is staged. This year will be no exception! Why not pay a visit!

The 6th Guadiana International Music Festival is happening on October 19th to 21st on both sides of the River Guadiana between Alcoutim and Sanlúcar de Guadiana.

Bigger and better than ever, enjoy an eclectic mix of music genres including Blues, Folk, Jazz, Fado, Flamenco and much more. Truly international with venues on both sides of the river. Take your pick: Sanlúcar, Spain in the afternoon, Alcoutim, Portugal in the evening. Can’t decide, no problem, flit between the two within minutes, using the the ferry.

The Guadiana International Music Festival is a not for profit event that takes place each year in mid-October. This is the 6th year of the festival, which was originally devised as a way for the large ex-pat community to give something back to our wonderful hosts in Alcoutim, Portugal and Sanlúcar, Spain, on either side of the Rio Guadiana. It is a truly international and multi-cultural event, organised through the collaboration of ex-pats with local Spanish and Portuguese organisations and businesses. Volunteers work free of charge to organise, manage, promote and perform at the festival and, alongside a fantastic weekend of eclectic music, the festival aims to promote the many attractions in the regions surrounding the two villages.
