In order to promote the reconnection between audiences and performers, two of the largest Portuguese production companies join the city halls of Porto and Lisbon to present 40 simultaneous concerts: 20 at Super Bock Arena - Rosa Mota Pavilion and 20 at Campo Pequeno. The first one on October 31st (Xutos & Pontapés) and the last one on December 19th (Mariza).
Beginning on October 31st and ending on December 19th, "Santa Casa - Portugal ao Vivo" will present a total of 40 concerts by the most varied Portuguese artists between the cities of Porto and Lisbon: 20 at Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota and 20 in Campo Pequeno. The goal is to contribute to the resumption and encouragement of culture in Portugal.
"20 20 Cultura para todos" (20 20 Culture for all) is the name of the initiative that will be jointly produced by Everything is New and PEV Entertainment, in partnership with Santa Casa da Misericórdia de Lisboa, Lisbon City Hall, EGEAC and Porto City Hall, via the municipal company Ágora - Cultura e Desporto.
In addition to the coincidence between the year 2020, the name is also due to the fact that there are 20 concerts performed simultaneously in each of the two cities. In addition, there is a call to the inevitability of bringing culture back into the daily lives of the Portuguese.
In fact, this series of concerts is held, above all, due to the willingness to promote the reconnection between audiences and performers, at a time when the artistic world and all the activities that gravitate around this world are going through difficult moments, being this the main goal of the project.
In this context, the line-up will be 100 percent Portuguese, promising to bring the best of Portuguese music and comedy to the stages of Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota and Campo Pequeno.
Xutos & Pontapés, Mariza, Rui Veloso, Amor Electro, Aurea, Jorge Palma, Diogo Piçarra, Carminho, Dino Santiago, Mafalda Veiga, Paulo Gonzo, Camané and Mário Laginha, Plutonio, Richie Campbell, Fernando Rocha, Moonspell, Anjos and David Carreira are some of the confirmed performers.
So as to guarantee the safety of everyone, each concert was thought out based on strict compliance with the rules issued by the health authority, Directorate-General of Health (Direção Geral de Saúde-DGS). Wearing face masks is compulsory, in a venue designated for this purpose, where all seats will be marked, complying with the mandatory distancing between spectators who are not part of the same household. In order to avoid any kind of crowding, all entries and exits will have their own flow routes with the proper signage.
