Along the 6 hours of broadcast between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. the TVI presenters will show the most emblematic places of the council promoting the gastronomic and tourist heritage of Albufeira.

Around 11.15 p.m. Tiago Bettencourt takes the stage, author of several reference songs of the new Portuguese music. The former lead singer of Toranja and Mantha will start the New Year with us, bringing with him his latest work entitled “Do Princípio” (From the Beginning). Tiago Bettencourt will give a show, where songs such as “Morena”, the single from the new album, will not be missed and where the musician will sing some of the most striking songs of his career, such as “Carta” (Letter), the first single, “Laços” (Ties) “Canção Simples” (Simple Song) and “Só Mais Uma Volta” (Just One More Round).

Más de 6 horas de transmisión, entre las 14:00 y las 20:00 horas, los presentadores TVI darán a conocer los lugares más emblemáticos de la comarca, divulgando el patrimonio gastronómico y turístico de Albufeira.

The revelation band D.A.M.A. promises to excite the crowds of Albufeira with the songs that have launched them into the spotlight: “A Balada do Desajeitado” and“Luísa”. The group, whose abbreviation means “Let me lighten up the mind, friend”, is one of the most sought of the moment, due to the success that has been building throughout 2014, with the release of their first album of originals “Uma Questão de Princípio” (A Question of Principle).

At midnight all eyes will turn to the sky of Albufeira, which will be lit up by the usual firework display that once again has two launching sites: Fishermen’s Beach and Oura.
