Events to look forward to in Lisbon this September 2015

There is something melancholy about the knowledge that autumn is coming, that we say goodbye to summer and welcome the season that we assimilate with rain and cold, but Portugal begs to differ.

September here is still sunny and warm and eventful. Here are, therefore, some events to look forward to in Lisbon this September 2015.

Music is at home in Lisbon this September, between the 5th and 6th at the LISB-ON Festival. Nicolas Jaar, Nina Kraviz, Fandango, Michael Mayer and many other guests will come to perform at this two-day music festival in the beautiful Parque Eduardo VII. A ticket costs 25 EUR/ day or 40 EUR/ entire event.

Did you think the colorful Holi Festival of Colors is only celebrated in India? Well, it does originate there, but it is also scheduled to take place in Lisbon on September 13th. Happy Holi, held at Estadio Universitario de Lisboa, declares itself the most happy and full of colors music festival worldwide. After the concerts, a color blast will be released on the crowd – mainly dressed in white, now turned… all the colors of the rainbow! To be avoided if you have no sense of humor or if you want to keep your clothes intact!

Are you fond of opera music? Then Lisbon is your place this September. On September 20th 2015, the Orchestra of the Gulbenkian Foundation will give a unique outdoor concert including Ravel’s “Bolero” and Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Scheherazade”.

And if you have a charitable nature, you can join the GECITS Portugal initiative to raise funds for a canteen for the poor. Jantares responsaveis is an idea we salute – and so can you!

September is an excellent time to visit the capital city of Lisbon. You can even get a Lisbon tour for a very low price if you book online in advance.
