We are looking for a new home!

It’s true! Festival Andanças is looking for a new home where it can continue to be relevant to all Andantes who have been with us for over 20 years and the ones that are yet to come. We can only thank the community of Castelo de Vide, whom we owe a lot and whom from the first moment were openly and actively involved. May the seed planted bear fruit for the future of other events in this region.

We hope to have news very soon. So you can have news firsthand sign our newsletter here.

Announcement: Andanças cancels 2019 edition, but will not end.

PédeXumbo Association, organizer of the Andanças Festival, reports with great sadness that the 24th edition of the Andanças Festival will be canceled.

 

The 2019 edition, scheduled for 4 to 10 of August, marked the return of the event to the banks of the dam of Póvoa e Meadas, in Castelo de Vide. This return was to ensure that all the participants would enjoy a seven-day Andanças full of entertainment, in a safe and comfortable environment. However, despite all the efforts made, it’s at this moment impossible to guarantee the necessary conditions for the realization of what we have designed for this edition.

 

As there are no alternatives to the space where this edition was planned, it is impracticable to proceed with the production process, with no alternative other than the cancellation of the Festival Andanças’2019.

 

In this gap we will design a Andanças adapted to emerging challenges, designed to provide conditions that respond to the present climate changes, based on sustainability and preservation of the surrounding environment, ensuring a full experience to our participants, artists, volunteers and partners.

 

We offer all our sincere apologies for the inconveniences that underlie the non-performance of this edition, and we inform you that all participants who have already purchased your ticket are being contacted in order to articulate the immediate reimbursement of the amount spent on them.

 

PédeXumbo Association deeply regrets the cancellation of the 2019 edition of Andanças, this unique Festival that has more than 20 years.

 

Andanças will continue to be a space where everyone dances, where music is made, where you can learn and have new experiences, where there is sharing and crossing of ideas for a better world.

This year there is more space to dance at Andanças!

Keeping the idea of diversity in the program and the same number of activities, this year there will be more space to dance in the Póvoa e Meadas Dam. This year’s the capacity will be limited to 3,500 people, who will have more space to dance and for greater freedom of movement. We are planning for six stages, plus all the program areas dedicated to children, local activities, and others,  same number of toilets, showers, canteen area and an extensive camping area, so that we all spend less time queuing and have plenty of time for all the activities we wish to explore throughout the day. Reserve your place for these seven days of music and dance in the beautiful Póvoa e Meadas Dam! Buy your online ticket here.
