The Algarve Boat Festival is a unique concept to party during the times of the pandemic and the event consists of “various separate parties out at sea!”. This festivity is also known as a local tradition that has become part of Lagos’ culture, for many years.

“The Portuguese Start-Up dedicated to maritime tourism, with the support of the municipality of Lagos started this innovative concept of partying with one stage and multiple dance floors, at sea, the stage-boat guarantees a safe event with social distancing and fresh air, thus catering to the pandemic, according to the guidelines of the DGS.”

“Lagos will host locals and tourists from all different age groups that will celebrate together at sea. Each group has their own unique dancefloor: a boat! Groups can join with their own boats, or rent one through the SeaBookings platform. There are also limited spots available on bigger shared party boats, for those who don’t have their own boats and don’t want to rent one for themselves.”

“For its third edition, Algarvian DJ Pete Tha Zouk will headline the festival, a true national treasure when it comes to electronic music with international success. To warm up, DJ Astrella will be pairing up with Carlos Glória Sax, Lagos local, to get the party boats ready for this incredible end of summer party! The artists will play on the main boat, which won’t have any guests beside the organization team on board.”
