Iberian Festival Awards applications - last day. Talkfest'19 also has Black Friday.

The TALKFEST - International Music Festivals Forum, with its 8th edition scheduled for March between the cities of Lisbon and Vigo, already has more than 20 confirmed speakers and makes available today until Sunday 50 tickets at a special Black Friday price, with a 15€ discount. It suffices for each user to enter the code on the ticket purchase Weegoto platform (74125044). Next week we will announce another 10 speakers presents at the event and a new international keynote speaker.

It is today the end of the applications for the 4th edition of the Iberian Festival Awards, included in Talkfest and there is already a record of the number of applications with a higher quality and accuracy of the same by those in charge if we compare with the level of previous editions.

The Teatro Afundación (Vigo) will receive a gala composed by 22 categories + 1 excellence award interspersed by six live acts. As the event is more than the recognition of Iberian winners, national, finalist and loser there will be an afterparty with open bar for all present and from there continue to come out the best synergies for the festivals.
