Thanks to Jaime for letting me know that the Aleste music festival returns to Barreirinha at 16.30 today after being cancelled last year.

The Diario reports ( see below) that € 12,000 has been forthcoming from the municipal authorities in Funchal to support the event, which was reportedly sold out within 3 hours of being advertised.

All entrants to be sat at 46 socially distanced tables of 5 (230 persons total ), and all entrants to have a negative antigen covid test – free tests are being done today at the Barreirinha Bar Cafe above for ticket holders.

Under curfew rules itthe Aleste music festival will finish at midnight. A video of the event in 2019 is below.
