Andanças is shaped by everyone, artists, as well as volunteers and normal participants: everyone contributes in a unique way and makes those days of dancing, music, sharing and celebration possible. 

The edition of 2017 will keep the structure and identity of Andanças, but in a smaller format, nevertheless in a format that will be recognisable. We adjusted all areas of the festival to its new capacity of 1750 people and the new location in the town of Castelo de Vide. In 2017 we will keep the quality and diversity of the programme high, continuing the concept of Andanças as a laboratory of ideas, experiences, creation, as origin of dreams and moments of synergies.
By buying a ticket for Andanças you are contributing to:
— Developing a space for experimenting with and disseminating of good environmental and social practices;

— Support participation of artists who fill the programme of Andanças and offer a journey through cultures and parts of the world within the festival ground;
— Construction of stages, infrastructure, showers, toilets, canalisation, electrical supply at the new Andanças location; 
 — Supply the Andanças canteen with local products, stimulating local economy and traditional trade, with preference of small producers, even if this causes higher expenses for the organisation;
— Execution of all tasks related to the organisation of a large-scale festival, which is governed by principles of well-being and respect for the environment in all its stages. 
The edition of Andanças'17 - around the Village, has a  limited capacity to 1750 people. For this reason, and in order to not impede the acquisition of the 4-day passes, we didn't sell daily tickets online. The online sales phase for the acquisition of the 4-day pass has finished on July 30 and there are still tickets available. There have been numerous calls from the public asking us to facilitate the purchase of daily tickets in advance, so in order to avoid the possibility of traveling to Andanças and not being able to buy a ticket because they are sold out, the organization has decided to sell daily tickets online, as well as 4 day passes from  31st july to 4th August. The organization will inform on the site and social networks if the maximum capacity is reached on any of the days. If you want to secure your trip to Andanças'17, this is the opportunity to buy your daily ticket in advance.
