Westway LAB is famous because audiences have to hurry back and forth between several venues in Guimarães – in search of the latest musical innovations. This year the itinerary will be a bit different, starting from the Santa Luzia ArtHotel, and including the Tribuna space of the São Mamede Arts and Entertainment Centre and the Bar Oub’lá, in the Praça de S. Tiago, in addition to the usual venues of the City Showcases – the Bar da Ramada and the café-concerto of the Convento Association. In these venues it will be possible to listen to indie-pop from Mickey, a Slovak duo based in Austria, American-influenced pop (from R&B to hip-hop) by Swedish Elin Namnieks, or the indie-rock of Izzy and the Black Trees , from Poland, three projects that are part of the selection of the INES network for 2019. Greek multi-instrumentist and composer, Theodore, will also perform. Portuguese music is well represented by Holy Nothing, one of the country’s most promising bands, which explores the frontier between electronic and post-rock, as well as guitarist Francisco Sales, singer Beatriz Nunes and the dirty-rock quartet, Smartini.
