Lovers & Lollypops was created in 2005, with the desire to document and amplify all the music that, at the time, excited its founding members. Fifteen 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.

Ghost Hunt @ CCOP and Lovers & Lollypops present

Ghost Hunt are not chasing ghosts, nor do they want to scare anyone, but the music they make could be the soundtrack of a rave in a haunted house. They grew up in the same city, Coimbra, went to the same school and were practically of the same class, but they never belonged to the same "tribe". Pedro Chau, from The Parkinsons, has always been more connected to punk; and Pedro Oliveira, a former member of Monomoy, has always been closer to the indie universe. Today, older, they form the electronic duo Ghost Hunt, from where they’ve created the second full length to be released in may.

CLUBE LOVERS & LOLLYPOPS

Associação com fins disruptivos 

Truth be said, Lovers & Lollypops has always been a group of friends. It started being it within the perimeter of a certain territory and neighborhood, Porto, and gathering around itself a very particular creative movement, composed by bands, musicians, creators and curious minds and the network that they have been creating around mutual collaboration. From this idea, a label was created, which from the north Portugal opened up to other parts of Portugal and from there to the world, adding more and more voices around a common idea: discovery. As is normal to curiosity, it came a time when it would no longer fit in just the possibilities of an LP, it was necessary to give it space to boil. From there it evolved to a stage, first at Milhões de Festa, the festival that over a decade was a space for a union around all that was new, secondly in the various external productions, concerts and curatorships that, since 2005, Lovers & Lollypops has been promoting all over the country.

It is funny that it's in the challenge or the difficulty that we are often impelled to recreate ourselves and, with this, make the inevitable process of connecting with what has always been our vision. At a time when we can't be together physically, we want to be even closer to online, compiling a set of exclusive content that keeps alive the way we perceive life. In this club we will always start from the key potential that we have to show you, the artists. Those with whom we have been working, those that we continue to discover, those that have marked us and that we always like to return to. Here, and in a constant exchange chain, we will provide editions, authorial programs, concerts, mixtapes and curiosities. We will bring you new things, filtered by our commitment to the new trends and artistic movements that continue to explode across the globe, from Portugal to Japan. We will do it through a set of unsaturated platforms and with a very clear monthly program, but still open to the inclusion of some surprises and news.

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. 

Tremor

(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.
