We could really feel a family atmosphere at LISB-ON: people talking and laughing like old friends, and organizers mixing with the scattering of artists. Michael Mayer told us how special Lisbon was to him as he has been coming here for more than 20 years. The guys who were running around organizing everything were old friends of his from the late ’90s and early ’00s, he told us. They were the guys booking him back then. This family feeling was starting to make sense.
