Lusito Land will be on fire with the contagious rhythm of Latin music and the energy of Portuguese folk dancers and singers. The rocking sounds are stepped up with the additional line-up of top and up-and-coming local bands and singers.
The line-up of musicians include Locnville, Mi Casa, The Bats and Kurt Darren, to name a few.
And if that’s not enough to leave you breathless, watch out for the world champion Latin dancers, belly dancers, modern dancers and an exciting air show.
All this excitement can leave festival goers hungry, and luckily there’ll be mobile vendors, exhibitors, stalls, bars and restaurants offering tantalizing Portuguese food and wine to still the need.
