On June 19th, it’s time to celebrate the second edition of the Algarve Boat Festival in Lagos, Portugal. SeaBookings, a Portuguese Start-Up dedicated to maritime tourism, with the support of the Municipality of Lagos, is getting ready to host this innovative concept of partying for the second time. “The Festival consists of various separate parties, united in one single event! And out at sea, of course!”
Last year, the festival was sold out within only a few days. Portuguese and foreigners from all different age groups came together at sea, surrounding one main boat – the stage-boat. Each group with their own unique dancefloor: a boat! Groups can join with their own boats, or rent one through the SeaBookings platform. One stage, multiple dance floors. At sea, social distancing and fresh air are guaranteed! This way people can enjoy a safe and innovative event, according to the guidelines of the DGS (Directorate-General of Health).
For this second edition of the Algarve Boat Festival, the famous DJ Diego Miranda is the headliner, a true national treasure when it comes to electronic music with international success. To warm up, we’ll have DJ Toby One pairing up with Carlos Glória Sax, both Lagos locals, to get the party boats ready for this incredible start of summer party! The artists will play at the main boat, which won’t have any guests beside the organization team on board.
Festival guests can join with their boats, whether it’s their own or a rented one, sailing or motor boat. There will also be limited shared spots available on bigger boats, for those who don’t have their own boats and don’t want to rent one for themselves.
Just like last year, the Algarve Boat Festival is supported by the Municipality of Lagos and the Marina of Lagos. The Marina offers a night’s stay after the festival for boats from other Marinas. And the Port of Lagos, as well as the maritime police, will be present to enforce the Contingency Plan in order to comply with the “Safe Event” requirements by DGS.
The start of the event will be at 15h30, in front of the most amazing landscape: the well-known Praia Dona Ana. The party will go on for 3 hours. Tickets can be bought online, on the website of the festival, via email or through official partners of the event. For those who can’t party at the site, the festival will be streamed live on the Facebook pages of SeaBookings and the Município de Lagos.
Dozens of vessels are expected to participate in this event, but please be aware that the capacity is very limited. Book a spot for your boat now or grab one of the exclusive seats on the shared party boats.
