The Impulso organization explains to us that “with this format we promote a regular cultural presence in the city of Caldas da Rainha. 2023 was an experience that became a success, with our audience responding ‘present’ on the nights that we believe were memorable for the city. We look forward on repeating this adventure and are very proud of our schedule for 2024.“

Regarding the programme, the Impulso team states that “in this first part of the Impulso Season we highlight the shows by the Japanese artist Hatis Noit, the Argentinian group Blanco Teta (debut in Portugal) and several artists nominated for albums of the year, with special emphasis on Conference Inferno, Prétu, André Henriques or Filipe Sambado. We will also promote the debuts of Proxy Fae, l_ava and Aggressive Girls, as well as new albums by Galgo, EVAYA, Emmy Curl and Sreya, among many other surprises and concerts. We will also present new artistic residencies this year, starting with l_ava (interdisciplinary project by musician Diogo Arranja and visual artist Tiago Maduro) along with three more residencies in the 2nd half of the year with an exclusive presentation at Impulso.”
