October means the shops, cafes, and restaurants have finally returned from their férias, you aren’t melting (as much), and the kids are settled back at school. All together, that means more places to go and more time to enjoy all the cultural offerings of this here city of Lisbon. We’ve gathered some of the best art, music, and other events in the city in October so you can better plan your visit!
Until October 19, Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal is paying homage to this classic novel in celebration of its 300th birthday – Parabéns! According to the organizers, “this show presents the specifics of Portuguese translations and adaptations of Daniel Defoe’s realistic novel, as well as the various visual representations of the global hero throughout the times.”
Are you a Tourist?
Running throughout the whole of October, Are you a Tourist? examines tourists, their activities, as well as migrants and locals – with special emphasis on our daily or occasional encounters. Hosted in the tourism hotspot of Belem, you can slot this exhibit nicely into your already packed itinerary. Happy days.
Are you looking for a ‘70s throwback? Do you have exactly 28€ for a ticket (and another couple bucks for beer)? Well, my friend, you’re in luck, because the Psychedelic Furs are making their way to Lisbon this October. Buy a ticket in advance so you’re not stuck sitting on the curb in your bellbottoms.
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, and by that logic, a Chet Faker by any other name will sound as… sad? Nick Murphey (FKA Chet Faker) is gracing Lisbon’s Coliseu to present his new album Run Fast Sleep Naked – advice that we here at Atlas can totally get behind. Tickets can (and should) be bought in advance.
Get in touch with your inner hippy with this self-explanatory activity – Sunset Rooftop Donation Yoga. What is it? Yoga. Where is it? On a rooftop. When is it? Sunset. How much is it? A donation. Come on people. Details change, so make sure to find more info for the day you plan to go.
There are, of course, plenty of events that run every week or month in Lisbon, so check out the calendar for even more fantastic events!
