23 jun – 09 jul / Free entry
Over the course of three weekends, the Gulbenkian Garden will be the stage for more than 30 concerts and DJ sets featuring the rhythms and melodies of Kuduro and Afro House, Afrobeat and Hip Hop, Fado, Traditional Music from Cape Verde and Guinea, R&B, Rap, Pop, Soul, Jazz and MPB (Popular Brazilian Music).
Above all, the Gulbenkian Summer Garden 2023 will be a place to meet, share and enjoy the surprising and eclectic programme curated by Lisboa Criola and Dino D’Santiago, whose dream of a Mundu Nôbu [New World] keeps taking shape.
In addition to the concerts and DJ sets, there will also be art-making workshops for the youngest and a talk with the Brazilian political philosopher and activist Djamila Ribeiro.
The feeling of belonging is not common to all people. But if there was ever a place where all bodies felt at home, at least for 9 days, that place was the 2022 Gulbenkian Summer Garden.
The music that comes from the outskirts of Lisbon was the great ambassador of this movement, pulsating beyond the invisible walls that still separate us. Thousands of smiles were shared, along with the contagious dancing and the hugs choreographed by the power of emotion. It was the glimpse of a once utopian Mundu Nôbu [New World], Lisboa Criola [Creole Lisbon] walking barefoot on the grass, drenched in sweat to the sound of the endless mantra carried by our beat.
This year, we are back to that garden of heavy accents, where no one will feel like a foreigner. I truly believe that the Summer Garden is the meeting point where our prejudices are kept at the door, making room for a new Lisbon. Nu Bai!
All Summer Garden events have free admission, subject to venue capacity.
This programme is subject to last-minute changes.
