From the south of Portugal to the world, World Music is featured in the MED Festival that takes place in the historic area of the city of Loulé.

Along with Music, Cinema, Poetry, Theater, Street Animation, Plastic Arts, Thematic Conference and Gastronomy are once again part of this year’s program. The commitment to environmental sustainability, the promotion of gender equality and the union of peoples continue to deserve special attention from the organization.

Since 2004, the MED Festival has made an important contribution to the tourist projection of the Algarve region, cultural appreciation and dynamization of the local economy.

The MED has already had 50 nominations for different awards and has already been distinguished as Best Medium Sized Festival of the Iberian Peninsula, in 2017 and 2018; Best Tourism Promotion (Portugal), in 2018 and 2020; Contribution to Sustainability in the Iberian Peninsula in 2019; Best Lusophone and Hispanic Festival of the Iberian Peninsula, in 2020.

Throughout these 18 editions, more than 600 bands have passed through the Festival, representing more than 50 countries.

The MED Festival thus continues its path directed to the dissemination of the music and culture of the countries of the Mediterranean Basin, enhancing the promotion of the Municipality and the diversity of the tourist offer.
