After a decade of throwing jazz-filled parties in and around Lisbon, and a debut festival in Cascais last year, OUT///FEST are returning once more this summer. Only this time round they've transformed their festival into an altogether more colourful and funky affair, inspired by a certain wading bird.
By adopting the striking flamingo as their new logo, mascot and inspiration, the festival are injecting 'a more joyful and colourful identity' into their party in the Parque Marechal Carmona.
This new identity is also reflected in the music on offer, which this summer extends beyond the jazz of previous years to also explore funk, soul, disco and house music. And as we all know, flamingos know how to bust a move...
So in honour of the majestic creature and the musical direction that it has inspired, we've put together a playlist featuring some of this year's performers that captures the vibe of what you can expect at OUT///FEST come September.
