We’re loading the next adventure…

In the 6th edition of Westway LAB, musical notes came to life in Guimarães in the form of 29 concerts, 14 conferences, 2 keynotes, 2 workshops, 3 networking sessions, 20 European export offices, 2 Talks and 4 artist residencies.
The Vila Flor Cultural Center (CCVF) was the epicenter of an energy that spread to the city throughout the four days of this music event, affirming Westway LAB as an international territory of creation and export, knowledge, sharing, networking and enjoyment in the musical universe, which extends and widens its bridges, which this year have crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a more consolidated way, with Canada as a country in the spotlight.

Westway LAB is about to launch a new episode of this big and surprising adventure, bringing together once again the public, artists and professionals from the music industry, all in Guimarães, a city in continuous transformation motivated by creation and thought.

See you in Spring for the next adventure!
