Mindelo, Jan 17 (Inforpress) – City Hall of São Vicente announced Thursday August 14, 15 and 16 as the date for the 36th edition of the Baía das Gatas International Music Festival.
The event, according to information available on the City Hall official Facebook page, takes place at Baía das Gatas beach, eight kilometers from the Mindelo city centre.
According to the same source, disclosure of the date, seven months from the event, is due to the fact that emigrants and the general public can organize their holidays and appointments in advance at the time of the festival.
Baía das Gatas, known as the “magical place by nature”, hosts an annual music festival that moves São Vicente on an artistic, festive, human and economic level in August.
The festival was first held on August 18, 1984, and is held annually at Baía das Gatas beach, and since then only in 1995 has not been held due to a cholera epidemic that has plagued Cabo Verde.
