What happens when one of the greatest names in the industry decides to put art and music together in the same place (and we have to say what an amazing space)? The result is a place full of good energies, amazing art and great music. That place was the Iminente Festival curated by Alexandre Farto aka Vhils, and Underdogs (Public Art gallery editions).
The festival took place on the last weekend of September (23rd to 25th) and on the street art scene it had participants such as Vhils, Akacorleone, Okuda, Gonçalo Mar, Bordalo II, Wasted Rita, Addfuel, André da Loba, Clemens Behr, David Oliveira, Mais Menos, Maria Imaginário, Mario Belém, Pedrita and Pedro Matos.
The venue was a garden in the city of Oeiras (Jardim Municipal de Oeiras), 20 minutes from Lisbon and next to sea, where there was plenty space for big artwork, a dancefloor/mini concert stage, a big stage and an area for food trucks. Tickets flew immediately and the three days of festival were sold out in a couple of days.
Here are some photos of the event:

Hopefully we will have another one next year….. Will we have it, Vhils????
You may consider a modest donation — however much you can afford, when it comes from the heart, it’s the kind of gesture that makes us warm with appreciation.
