Proof that some things are still right in this world, for the sixteenth year in a row Barreiro is set to be flooded by rock n roll during Barreiro Rocks. Set to take place between November 30 and December 4 amidst stages located in GD Os Ferroviários and Escola Conde De Ferreira, the festival this year includes two curated events.
On December 2, Groovie Records is responsible for most of the line-up, in an event spanning from the garage punk of Les Grys Grys to the psychedelic cumbia of Ronaldo Bruno Y Su Orquestra MIDI. The day after, Amsterdam based label Slovenly Records curates an interesting mix punk and dirty rock n roll.
The regular programme permeating all days of the festival features some of the most interesting rock made in Portugal, as exemplified by a returning name like The Sunflowers, who have recently released “The Intergalactic Guide To Find The Red Cowboy”. Along the ride for the promotion of the record have been 800 Gondomar, who promise to take the attendance into a wild fucking ride.
The remaining names on the bill can be seen below in the poster by 4 Cães À Babuje, as well as in the festival’s program which you can find here. The full pass costs 30€, daily tickets range from free entrance on the 1st of December to 5, 10 or 15€ on the other days.
