Portugal is primarily known for its port wine, Pastel de nata, Piri Piri Chicken, Football & Golf. But, for the past few years, a small set of hard rock & hard metal enthusiasts have been making a mark in the music industry for its Vagos Metal Fest 2021.
Although Fado (a form of singing) deserves the much-coveted tag of UNESCO’s World Intangible Cultural Heritage, the Metal Fest is also climbing the ranks of being a popular festival for the past few years. The 2021 edition of Vagos fest will be held from 29th July to 31st July.
So, what’s going to happen in the VMF 2021? & Read on to find out!
Origins of Vagos Metal Fest 2021
The Vagos Metal Festival that you see today has had very humble beginnings. It originated in 2009 in the Aveiro region where a small event used to take place called Rock in Ria.
