3rd LXNIGHTS Meeting


3os Encontros


The third edition of Encontros LXNIGHTS is coming, focused on June’s Festas de Lisboa. The eating of Sardines in the street, the contest of the Marchas, the selling of Manjericos and the dancing in the Arraiais transforms the days and, mainly the nights, in Lisbon. But, who are their main characters? What’s the meaning of these celebrations for lisbonians and visitors? How this annual event contribute for the transformation of the city?



In these 3rd Encontros LXNIGHTS we’ll go in depth about this June’s urban phenomenon meeting with some of the actors involved in its production, presenting an open dialogue to offer a widen perspective of the very night when the entire city is party.
