Two magical islands; an oak grove with the best music, and 30 renowned chefs ready to cook for the audience; a city that will become the capital of action sports and urban culture in Europe; and three seaside towns where big bands take the stage in a unique atmosphere. The Rías Baixas Fest, a series of festivals supported by the Deputación de Pontevedra, are coming with the best ingredients: renowned artists, the best food, extreme sports and recreational activities. Moreover, they are held in privileged settings where nature combines with the spirit of this coastal land.

In PortAmérica, artists and renowned chefs meet at a multicultural event held in an idyllic oak grove. The Atlantic Fest combines music, nature and the spirit of the sea. The crowd rock to the rhythm of the bands at Vive Nigrán, the Picnic Pop Festival, celebrated next to the beach A Praia América. Sinsal SON Estrella Galicia, with a secret line-up, is held on a magical island where the Galician troubadours used to sing in the Middle Ages. At SonRías Baixas, committed and entertaining music bands play their music in a beautiful setting, in the region of O Morrazo. The city of Vigo is the meeting point for the best extreme riders. Finally, Revenidas closes the series of festivals with a big line-up, solidarity and roasted sardines!
The #RíasBaixasFest are also committed to achieving sustainability and equality, their hallmarks. In fact, the Deputación de Pontevedra is working hand in hand with the organizers to raise public awareness about environmental sustainability, equality, and against gender violence.
