Lusito Association spokesperson, Noemia Contente, says each festival is planned with painstaking attention to detail.

“Preparation commences as soon as the previous festival ends months ahead of the kick-off date and there are countless minutiae to consider, from finding the hottest musicians and most tempting food-stalls, to enlisting the services of qualified security personnel and cleaners.”

With the next festival set to take place from 20 to 28 April 2019, arrangements are already well underway.

“We need to ensure that every new event offers visitors something special that sets it apart from previous events and ensure it is every bit as successful as the previous ones,”

adds Contente.

So how does the Lusito Land Festival remain so successful year after year? Well they have a special recipe that they follow.
