BONS SONS

The largest and most diverse festival dedicated to Portuguese music, BONS SONS takes place every year in the village of Cem Soldos, Tomar. Organized by SCOCS, the local cultural association, BONS SONS acts as a platform to promote Portuguese music, where the audience can discover emerging projects as well as reconnect with renowned musicians.

In addition to being a Portuguese music festival, BONS SONS is, first and foremost, an unparalleled experience. The village of Cem Soldos is closed and its perimeter marks out the festival venue. Inside, 8 stages, each hosting a dedicated programme, blended seamlessly with the village’s streets, squares, the church and other facilities. In addition to this unique atmosphere, BONS SONS fosters a close engagement with its audience while involving the population in the making of the festival. It is the locals who welcome and serve festivalgoers, in a unique communion between hosts and visitors that affords an unparalleled experience of a music event.

A thoughtfully designed programme, the entire village of Cem Soldos as venue and the involvement of the locals in the Festival are unique traits that set BONS SONS apart in the Portuguese cultural scenario.

In addition to raising audience awareness, the primary goal of BONS SONS is to contribute to local development by boosting the economy and contributing to keep the younger population in the region.

BE A PART

BONS SONS is a community festival which lives off visitors who contribute to its great experience. Besides the Cem Soldos population, every year the village receives volunteers, catering services and a marketplace, enriching the festival’s environment during its four days.

VOLUNTEERS

Volunteering is in the DNA of BONS SONS. A festival like ours can only happen with the valuable contribution of its volunteers. The enthusiastic lending hand of all of them is decisive to make this festival unique.

It’s an opportunity to meet people from all over Portugal and other countries, with different world views, and also to experience a music festival from within its organization, while being part of a team of over a hundred people. Every volunteer has the chance to integrate the singular environment that only Cem Soldos can provide and, of course, to watch the musical performances.
