Red Bull City Gang 2013:
The Red Bull City Gang returns this year to Barcelos earning its place inside the Milhões Festival. In the two previous editions of the festival, the Red Bull City Gang was on the loose around town, engaging a number of young local bands to play their music in charismatic places, non-likely locations such as the hardware store at the center, a regular landing of veteran locals of this Minho city region among other places little or nothing to do with rock and roll.
This time, the Red Bull City Gang will not anticipate the festival, but will dive in to its programming: ensuring the curation of the most emblematic stage, the swimming pool stage, which receives concerts during the afternoon.
Each of the three-day festival will feature a local band as host. On July the 25th, Dear Telephone will welcome Bispo, Ramboiage, Riding Panico and Celeste Mariposa. With La La La Resonance and Peixe: Avião members, this group will welcome the other musicians. On July the 26th, it will be the stoners Solar Corona, who like to take a few laps around the cosmos, receive the Memória de Peixe, Awesome Tapes From Africa label and The Jack shits. Finally, the last day of the Milhões de festa festival, will bring us Nuno Rodrigues (of The Glockenwise) new project – Duquesa that will welcome Mdou Moctar, Zacarocha and Thug Unicorn.
Singular festival, Milhões counts on the Red Bull City Gang’s agitation, always ready to shed light on the most challenging and new Portuguese music.
