O RFM SOMNII vai transpirar música, cultura e artes em 2019

O RFM SOMNII – O Maior Sunset de Sempre! regressa, em 2019, com a ambição de ser o maior festival de Portugal e transforma-se na Cidade Festival nos dias 5,6 e 7 de Julho.

O RFM SOMNII vai transformar-se na cidade festival – uma grande festa feita para abraçar a cidade da Figueira da Foz.

O evento e o espírito do RFM SOMNII será expandido por vários locais do centro urbano, tornando-se na maior manifestação cultural em Portugal! Ao longo dos três dias de evento, o centro da cidade será invadido por artistas, espetáculos surpresa, zonas de tertúlia e lazer, experiências e festas especiais.

O público pediu e a organização oferece novos géneros musicais em cartaz. Além da música de dança, este ano a oferta será alargada às maiores tendências musicais a nível mundial:

  • Pop e o Hip-Hop. Diariamente, no palco principal atuará, como cabeça de cartaz, um grande nome de referência mundial.
  • Os maiores DJs do mundo com atuações inéditas. O conceito eletrónico do RFM SOMNII vai continuar como nos anos anteriores. Pela primeira repetem-se artistas que marcaram o público com as suas fantásticas atuações em edições anteriores.
  • O RFM SOMNII afirma-se de ano para ano como sendo mais do que um festival: é um conceito alargado de celebração de verão obrigatória na agenda nacional e internacional. O evento ambiciona ser o maior festival nacional em bilhetes vendidos, área coberta e em consumos por parte do público visitante.

Após 6 magníficas edições na Figueira da Foz, que elevaram o festival a estatuto de reconhecimento mundial e ao mais que merecido título “O Maior Festival de praia da Europa”, é hora de alargar, ainda mais, o espectro musical e artístico do festival, com a inclusão do que é umas das maiores tendências da música mundial da actualidade, o Hip Hop! Anunciando assim a primeira confirmação de peso neste género… nada mais que o fenómeno norte-americano Tyga.

A consciência ecológica é outro dos valores do RFM SOMNII. A responsabilidade individual de cada um é importante para a organização e para os visitantes. Este ano será fomentada uma campanha inédita em conjunto com as entidades oficiais. O mote desta campanha tem como base dois dos valores festival:

“O Nosso #Sonho é uma #Praia limpa”. Todas as bebidas serão servidas em copos recicláveis.

Campismo RFM SOMNII – Um dos locais que esgota, rapidamente, todos os anos é o campismo, um local que será alvo de atenção especial e festas exclusivas. A festa de receção ao campista será o momento alto deste espaço.

After-parties – O encerramento do evento no recinto principal iniciará uma nova dinâmica noite dentro, no centro da cidade da Figueira da Foz. O Casino da Figueira entre outros locais, vão receber after-parties únicas, contando com a presença de artistas nacionais e internacionais.

A pulseira digital de acesso ao recinto será uma das inovações e marca, desde já, esta edição a nível tecnológico: quer a nível de acesso e bilhética, quer a nível de consumo antes e durante o evento.

A cidade da Figueira da Foz vai ser contagiada por 72 horas de animação em diversos pontos de interesse. Uma programação cultural extremamente bem definida e ao alcance de todos os que escolhem esta região como destino nestes 3 dias de festa.

The Biggest Sunset Ever nominated for the 2018 European Festival Awards

In 2018 the RFM SOMNII – The Biggest Sunset Ever is running in the European Festival Awards, in the “Best Major Festival “category. Prizes will be awarded on Jan 16 2019, in Groningen, Holland.

The Iberian Festival Awards aims to distinguish the best music festivals of the Iberian Peninsula in partnership with Festival Awards, that distinguishes yearly the best European events.

The RFM SOMNII – The Biggest Sunset Ever gives opportunity to young talents

The Opening Act of the RFM SOMNII 2018 edition – The Biggest Sunset Ever counted on three DJs and producers (yet) unknown to the general public. The festival gave an opportunity to young talents to open every day of the events and the results were amazing.

To achieve it, they just had to send a sample of the original song, together with a picture, to the RFM SOMNII – The Biggest Sunset Ever email. The application had to have a short biography, and the rest was up to its success.
Rich & Mendes, the RFM DJs duo, were the juries. They listened to the proposals, evaluated and selected the best ten. The songs chosen were made available to the listeners on the RFM site, and the most voted for were the winners in May.

The RFM SOMNII – The Biggest Sunset Ever is not just a dream, it’s the Greatest Dream Ever!

The RFM SOMNII takes you to dives in six editions

The Biggest Sunset Ever is now part of the collective imagination of thousands of dreamers, Portuguese or foreigners. In 2018 more than 100 thousand gathered in the already most renown beach in the country.

Praia do Relógio, in Figueira da Foz, became reference in the electronic music scenario and the central area of the country became viral with three days of memorable emotions and experiences to the sound of the best DJs in the world.

The RFM SOMNII is a unique event, on land and sea, where fans and visitors can enjoy the beach and amazing music shows as well as water activities. The magnitude of the facilities allows you to go for a safe swim during the event.
