Festança is made by and for the benefit of the community, and this brings immense challenges that make us want to cooperate and relate! That is why we need your support so that we can reward the pleasurable work of the entire team and artists, and to create the infrastructure that reflect Festança’s ecological philosophy.
We want to be a self-sufficient festival, and because of that, we do not want to depend on monetary support that does not follow the philosophy of the festival, nor that forces us to be dependent in any way. Thus, only by building a solid base, edition after edition, we will be able to manage our own self-financing sustainability to organise Festança.
The festival has a strong sense of supporting what is local and ecological, and for us that is the only way we will contribute to a dynamic that does not finance the corporate and monopolising entities that dominate the economy not only in Portugal, but throughout the world.
There are tthree ways to purchase the tickets:
1) Online, on this website, more precisely by clicking here. We remind you that if you do it online you pay less.
3) On the day of the festival, but there it will be at the normal price, and you will be dependent on existing availability

In addition, we will have a better idea of how many rooters (festival visitors) we will be waiting to offer a better festival. So if you know you’re coming, it’s best to buy the ticket in advance, to also avoid having to queue to enter the festival grounds.
Yes, inside Festança’s venue fit around 6000 “rooters” (this is the term for those who come to the festival, and which portrays someone who is enthusiastic and supportive, and who at the same time is connected to the earth to create roots!)
