Lovers & Lollypops was created in 2005, with the desire to document and amplify all the music that, at the time, excited its founding members. Seventeen years and a hundred records later, this is still its greatest aspiration: to register what is being one of the most exciting moments of musical production in Portugal, combining record publishing with concert promotion and booking. A mission that nowadays is also open to artists and agents of other countries, who find in the editorial arm of L&L a vehicle to let their work reach new audiences and in our action as concert and event promoters an important ally to allow their music to be presented in other markets.


Seeking to deepen the work and vision of the structure, Lovers & Lollypops also extended its activity to two complementary areas: having professionalized as a partner in the conceptualization and programming of festivals and concerts, as well as in the production and management of cultural events.

Driven by its eclecticism, Milhões de Festa proposes, annually, a diverse line up composed by national and international artists, a stage that is also a swimming pool, a “taina” are that incorporates the DNA of the region where it operates crossing music and food, as well as a set of musical and cultural proposals that in the city's public spaces, in an attempt to promote a close connection between the festival and Barcelos.
It was also around Milhões de Festa that a movement of musical creation was born, described by some as the “Barcelos scene”. A movement guided by the appearance of a diverse group of new bands and an environment of collaborative musical creation that remains alive until today. 


(2014-Presente) Tremor is an festival-experience that aims to implement a creative platform in a constant dialogue with the territory and the local community of the Azores, with particular attention to the island of São Miguel, the place where it takes place annually. With music as its ignition point, Tremor integrates a set of concerts that, over five days, occupies theaters, commercial spaces and touristic locations. The hallmarks of the festival are Tremor na Estufa, surprise concerts that are often held in natural and outdoor spaces, and Tremor Todo-o-Terreno, hikes that are accompanied with original and site-specific soundtracks, created to provide a plastic and sonic experience for a specific trail and that culminate in a live presentation surrounded by nature.
Committed to its work with the Azorean community, Tremor has been intensifying, since 2014, its residency program, with a wide range of exclusive creations that relate music to the territory, that activate collaborative creation with artists from the Azores and that involve different communities in the production of unique shows. Examples of this are the regular collaboration with the Rabo de Peixe School of Music and the São Miguel Deaf Association, among others.
