Vodafone Flash Concerts come to Coimbra and Faro

Lisbon, 10 February 2009 – The Vodafone Flash Concerts are coming to Coimbra and Faro, with a different line-up planned for each city.

In the university city of Coimbra, The Vicious Five will perform on 19 February in the Ar D’ Rato club. After the concert, DJ Vibe will keep the rhythm going well into the night.

In Faro, the concert by Rita Redshoes is scheduled for 21 February at the Pavilhão do Farense. After the concert, the audience will rock to the music of DJ Vibe.

At the end of both concerts, Vodafone will give all those present a mobile phone ringtone featuring a song of their choice by the artists who appeared on stage.

Before coming to Coimbra and Faro, the Vodafone Flash Concerts brought music to Porto, with David Fonseca, and Évora, with the Buraka Som Sistema. Both concerts were completely sold out. After the concerts in those two cities, the music continued deep into the night with the Dezperados.

Vodafone’s music strategy is characterised by the design and production of original, innovative events, and plays a unique and decisive role in enabling the Portuguese public to participate in music events both in Portugal and abroad.

These Vodafone Flash Concerts follow the success of the 2007 Flash Concerts which were held in 6 cities in Portugal between April and August of that year.

Complete information about the Vodafone Flash Concerts, including photos and videoclips of the concerts held in January and biographies of the artists is available at
