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.

Gaspar Cohen + Francisco Babo

Francisco Babo, an undercover artistic agent, enjoys using different non-industrial creative expressions - the stagnant, the insipid, the coarse, the leisurely, the counterproductive - to create moments of collective distraction and divergent thoughts. Believing in libertarian improvisation, he has recently been participating in activities with the Amateur label, the PELE association, and other scattered scenographies.


Gaspar Cohen is an artist and researcher. As a teacher and performer, he questions the capitalist-colonial system that incorporates digital technologies. His work materializes from concepts and spatial logics, addressing the illusory movements of reality, the limits of expansion, and the politics of noise and error.

Violeta Azevedo + Ariyouok

Violeta Azevedo is a sound artist who oscillates between composition and improvisation. Starting with the flute as her point of departure, her music transports us into a dense and detailed universe where sound is transformed into singular organisms through her orchestra of electronics and alchemical processes. Employing both distorted harmonies and delicate melodies, Violeta Azevedo invites us to immerse ourselves in her world, simultaneously inhabited by shimmering beings and shadowy energies in constant symbiotic harmony.


Born in Portugal and raised in Cabo Verde, Ari began expressing himself musically at a young age, experimenting with beatboxing and playing percussion. Since 2012, he has been exploring the Fruity Loops Studio software, discovering a new way to blend the different sounds he absorbs. From ancestral cultural roots to the new cybernetic world, his practice is a fusion of influences materialized in live performances, with his loop station and the rhythms of darbuka djambe percussion.

Over the years, he has collaborated on various projects, such as the musical production of Tristany's album "Meia Riba Calxa."

Barcelinhos (Frente ribeirinha)
A LOVERS FAZ 18!!! @ Barcelinhos (Frente ribeirinha)

Everything in its place and nothing in order, that's how the life of Lovers & Lollypops is marked, as it celebrates its eighteenth anniversary and enters adulthood with the same energy but with a different savoir faire, characteristic of those who have almost two decades of existence under both legs.

It's been 18 years celebrating the unconventional, with over a hundred releases, countless concerts in basements, gardens, and venues, iconic festivals on the mainland and islands, and a sea of people who, with us, exalt a life dedicated to celebrating music as a state of mind, as a way of being and living, as a space for the communion of different languages and artistic practices.

The future is that place that does not yet exist but is shaped in a collective mental space in the present, and it is with this object of prospective reflection that we embrace the celebration of this milestone. Knowing that the world contains more possibilities than what reality, under which we thrive, allows us to glimpse, L&L, more than wanting to reflect nostalgically on what was, continues to germinate tomorrow through continuous actions of integration, experimentation, and hybridization, where differences are celebrated and borders are melted.

Against the tide, 18 years ago, we set sail to create a community of collaborative practices, built on multiple sounds and, above all, on a foundation of empathic resonance between artists and audience, stage and spectators, live music and studio recordings so that, arriving at this moment, we can give ourselves the privilege of bringing together a series of artists who help us feel the pulse of these times of global strangeness and local empowerment.

On July 23rd, from 11:00 AM to 10:00 PM, Lovers & Lollypops will come of age in an event that brings the family together. Let's celebrate by returning to Barcelinhos and to a city where we were all happy.


Tickets cost 20 euros in pre-sale, with a pair of socks included.

Milhões de Festa

Since 2010, Milhões de Festa has been taking place in Barcelos (Portugal), the point from which, in more than ten years of history, it build a reputation of being one of the most country's most referential musical event, a space for discovery and encounter with new musical movements and a scenery for dozens of national premieres and memorable concerts. 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.
