Festival Artes Vertentes




“In addition to the program, the festival has been working throughout the year with children from the region, making the event itself just the most visible point of a broad project. Therefore, due to the solid conceptual proposal, much more than a mere pretext or suggestion, and to the high-quality realization, Artes Vertentes nowadays is one of the most important events of the Brazilian music calendar.”

João Luiz Sampaio (Estado de São Paulo)


Created in 2012, in the charming Baroque city of TIRADENTES (Minas Gerais, Brazil), Artes Vertentes is a multi-arts festival, intended to offer to the public standout performances in all the artistic languages; it also acts as a platform for communication not only between the artistic aspects, always integrated on a curatorial note, but also among musicians, writers, actors and visual artists of different nationalities.

The festival is held annually, during 11 days in September, presenting a program that seeks excellence. In order to act as a promoter of new opportunities and broaden its legacy, Artes Vertentes develops an educational program in the municipality, performing art workshops throughout the year for hundreds of children, in partnership with public and associative entities.

Exceptionally, in 2020, the Festival took place between November 26th and December 6th.
