Exciting New Festival in Portugal

Reverence Festival

Reverence Festival

Discount for tickets to the inaugural Reverence Festival in Valada, Ribatejo, Portugal, ends this coming Monday.  “56 awesome bands in 42 hours … for the bargain price of €55”.  I would be prepared to pay that just to see Psychic TV and Hawkwind – seriously.  Look at the line-up – Portuguese rockers and fans of modern psychedelia and getting really excited about the first appearance in Portugal of some of these names, especially Hawkwind, who in 45 years have amazingly never played here:

HAWKWIND // ELECTRIC WIZARD // GRAVEYARD // THE BLACK ANGELS // MÃO MORTA // RED FANG // PSYCHIC TV // A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS // CRIPPLED BLACK PHOENIX // RINGO DEATHSTARR // CHRISTIAN BLAND & THE REVELATORS // MOON DUO // SWERVEDRIVER // SYSTEM 7 // THE WYTCHES // WOODS // SLEEPY SUN // CAVE // BARDO POND // WOODEN WAND // WHITE HILLS // MUGSTAR // SPINDRIFT // BLACK BOMBAIM // ASIMOV // THE COSMIC DEAD // NAAM // THE ASTEROID # 4 // JIBÓIA // BORN A LION // WHITE MANNA // THE TELESCOPES // EXIT CALM // KILLIMANJARO // PROCESS OF GUILT // THE OSCILLATION // BOMBUS // THE FEELING OF LOVE // BRUTO & THE CANNIBALS // MISS LAVA // DREAMWEAPON // FRANÇOIS SKY & GUESTS // 10000 RUSSOS // MURDERING TRIPPING BLUES // THE RISING SUN EXPERIENCE // KEEP RAZORS SHARP // AIR FORMATION // THE QUARTET OF WOAH! // SUNFLARE // HOLY WAVE // CELESTIAL BUMS // BLACK LEATHER // SONIC JESUS // DAUGHTERS OF THE SUN // THE JABBERWOCKY BAND // ONE OF THESE DAYS & THEE HEAVY RANDOM TONE COLOUR LAB // NUNO CALADO // TIAGO CASTRO

Reverence will take place over the weekend of 12th/13th September.  Coming hot on the heels of the biannual Boom Festival in August, which has been my festival stomping ground since 2004, this summer is hotting up to be a great one for Portuguese music fans.
