The Festival

The 4th edition of the Festival Caixa Alfama celebrates once again the Fado in the heart of Alfama, in Lisbon. In 2013, Caixa Geral de Depósitos and the promoter Música no Coração united to embrace the challenge of creating the first Fado Festival. The Festival Caixa Alfama was born. The 4th edition of Caixa Alfama, will take place during the 23rd and 24th September, in 10 separate venues, with more than 40 artists of different generations who best represent, interpret, and disseminate Fado, as a genuine element of the Portuguese culture. The 23rd and 24th September will last, in memory of those who attend concerts, and reinforce the reason why in 2011, Fado was considered Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. The single ticket for the two days, costs 38€ and must be exchanged for a wristband by the ticket owner in the ticket office in Fado Museum, from the 22th September. This bracelet will allow access to all areas of the Festival up to a limit of capacity of each venue. Clients of Caixa Geral de Depósitos have a 10% discount on tickets purchased with any credit or debit card, at the ticket office of the Fado Museum.
