Parties

With over 500 participants every year, the Forró de Domingo Festival’s Parties have a wonderful atmosphere! 4 amazing parties, starting on Thursday with our traditional Barbecue. The venues are splendid and the choice of bands for Friday and Saturday is always one of our top concerns. This is also where teachers make their live presentations for the festival participants to see them at their best.

Last but not least

Forró de Domingo Festival

Over past 10 years the Forró de Domingo Festival brought the first wave of Forró teachers in Europe together. Now it’s time to bring this huge movement together one last time again. With more then 50 Forró festivals happening outside Brazil, We think our goal has been achieved �de09 Now is time to make space for the new.

2018 we’ll host the last edition of Forró de Domingo Festival celebrating 10 years of Europe’s greatest Forró Festival. We will use all our experience and power to make this last Festival an unforgettable Forró event.

We might have helped some people to have happier life through Forró. We would be so happy and very glad to see all of you here, celebrating the farewell party of the first Forró Festival outside Brazil.

Check Out the Chosen

Teachers

Europe’s Greatest Festival is not using its teachers choosing system one more time.

We did not reach this year the minimum number of 50 teachers enrollments to participate in the process of the choosing’ sytem. There were 35 “only”. And ’cause that, instead, we will do the following:

a) All teachers who registered for this year’s selection process (those who did not register can still do so), have the possibility to give private lessons in the last Festival Forró de Domingo. For this we are creating a system of booking private lessons, so people can do this online during the registration for the festival. And I will reserve at least 4 rooms for these classes.

b) Here we are doing a survey of the feedbacks of the last 10 years of festival. We will call to give the regular classes in the festival of 2018 the 10 best evaluated teachers in these ten years of event. Invitations will be made soon.
