Salvador Summer Festival announces attractions for 2023 edition

After three years of absence due to the pandemic, the Salvador Summer Festival is back. Suspended since the 2020 edition, the event returns to the Exhibition Center (where it debuted in 1999 and remained for 17 years) on January 28 and 29, with a series of novelties that were announced at an event for guests this Wednesday ( 28). Ticket sales will start on October 5, through the Sympla platform.

For this edition, the PV has as its motto the slogan “We are the World”, which encourages the concepts of freedom, inclusion, acceptance and diversity. Based on this proposal, Bahia Eventos, the entertainment company of Rede Bahia and director of the festival, innovated on different fronts, including the artistic area, which will be directed by Zé Ricardo, one of the most renowned curators in Brazil.

The result is a new structural format with 16 shows, divided into two main stages, headed by a line-up that bears the mark of the curator responsible for the musical programming of major events in the country.

“We will have a completely revamped Summer Festival, based on what we hear from the public in many surveys throughout the planning process. We invested in a social project that is super aligned with our value of love for music and its power to heal and transform people’s lives. We also announced a festival with two sustainability seals, which reinforces our concern to offset all the impact we have on the environment. In the musical field, we hired an artistic director of national prominence. It was precisely this role, among other attributes, that the festival needed to recover. Together, we are building an unforgettable edition”, says the head of Bahia Eventos, Gabriela Gaspari.

unusual encounters
One of the main marks of #FV23 will be the originality of the presentations. Zé Ricardo’s signature is synthesized in the articulation of creative encounters between artists of different lineages, styles and generations, from the Bahian and national scene.

“We want the public to feel represented and be proud to be part of the event. I was careful to choose the attractions and tailor the meetings in order to deliver a plural, multigenerational and accessible festival for people of all ages,” she says.

On stage, musical crosses are of multiple natures, such as Criolo with Ney Matogrosso, Ludmilla with Glória Groove, Saulo with Marina Sena and Jão with Pitty. Salvador’s percussive beat will have its space demarcated in the encounters between BaianaSystem and Olodum and between Carlinhos Brown and Duda Beat and the band Àttooxxá.

Bahianity and female power will be represented in the show in which Ivete Sangalo invites Luedji Luna and in the gathering of black women in the show that will feature Margareth Menezes, Majur and Larissa Luz. And the local music tradition also gains the spotlight with the meeting of great exponents of Brazilian music, such as Gilberto Gil with Caetano Veloso, and Bell Marques.

National rap lovers will be graced with shows by Orochi with Djonga, Felipe Ret with Caio Lucas, and Xamã, whose company on stage is yet to be announced. The festival’s program also includes pop by Luísa Sonza and the different styles of pagode by Leo Santana and Ferrugem, who invites Xande de Pilares.

The look at the social
In addition to all the musicality and diversity proposed for #FV23, the event will embrace social and environmental causes that reinforce the commitment of this new phase of the festival to the local community and the environment. Conceived by the multi-instrumentalist, composer, producer and performer Marivaldo dos Santos, the Quabales project, from Nordeste de Amaralina, will count, over a year, with a program of investment of resources by the Summer Festival.

On the environmental preservation agenda, #FV 23 will have – for the first time – the zero waste and neutral event seals. The first guarantees non-generation, source separation, recycling and composting of discarded materials, and the second is granted to events that neutralize the inevitable emissions of greenhouse gases during production with compensatory environmental actions.

The Salvador Summer Festival is organized by Bahia Eventos, an entertainment company of Rede Bahia, and is co-organized by Salvador Produções and Luan Produções.
