funded by 2022 investors
VIBES & BEATS has been a dynamic actor in Portugal's entertainment world. They are now one of the largest national concert producers and manage events in many of the country's main venues.
The funds raised through this campaign are intended to co-finance the preparation and production of the 5th edition of the North Festival on May 26, 27, and 28 at Alfândega do Porto, in Oporto.
This is the promoter's third campaign, after having raised 400,000 euros through Vibes&Beats I and II, to leverage costs before shows, which were later settled by the ticket sellers (usually 15 days after the events).
As headliners for the North Festival, we can find Robbie Williams, The Chemical Brothers and Ivete Sangalo, and renowned national artists such as Pedro Abrunhosa and The Black Mamba. The festival also features Ana Castela and Gustavo Mioto.
In the first three months of 2023, the promoter organized 7 shows: the return of Eros Ramazzotti with two dates at the Altice Arena (Lisbon); The Waterboys tour with three shows at the Coliseu of Lisbon, Coliseu of Porto and Estoril Casino; the first show in Portugal of the Barões da Pisadinha, with two dates at the Super Bock Arena and Sagres Campo Pequeno. At this moment Vibes&Beats has 11 shows for sale at the box office and has more shows to be announced by the end of this semester.
The North Festival is presented as more than a music festival. The promoter intends to create a national reference through differentiated and charismatic experiences. The festival's slogan is "The compass points North". They have an eclectic program, a privileged location by the Douro river, and offer attractive conditions to "festival-goers".
The North Festival also features:
With these activities, the North Festival strengthens its relationship with the public, also becoming a profitable environment for brand activation.
The promoter's goals are to create new concepts for events, concerts and festivals where music is not the only focus.
Promotion of cultural economic activity: strengthening trade in cultural goods and services provides stimulation for local and national markets, which in turn provides employment opportunities and promotes local production. This is especially important after the cultural sector suffered serious setbacks by the Covid-19 pandemic in the last two years, and starts now to recover. The financing of Vibes&Beats enables:
Promotion of cultural diversity and heritage: the realization of the events promotes and recognizes national artists, cultural production, and heritage, and by bringing international artists to tour it contributes to an appreciation of cultural diversity.
Improvement in environmental responsibilities of events: the event North Music Festival produced by Vibes&Beats has begun in their 4th edition in 2022 to value measures to decrease the event’s environmental footprint, such as the exclusive use of reusable cups. However, the organization recognizes a longer way to go, and commit to more environment-friendly initiatives for the 5th edition of the event in 2023. Once these specific measures are set, the promoter plans to update investors.
Vibes & Beats has a calender of already signed contracts with open ticketing for the period 2023/2024, the funding will be repaid with revenues from these shows.
