Between 20 and 21 May, Festival Iminente is going to take over Mucem (Museum of Civilizations of Europe and the Mediterranean) in Marseille, with a special edition that includes concerts, performances, large-scale art installations and talks, bringing together a variety of Portuguese and French artists.
Two days and nights in which three open-air stages will be occupied by artists like 100 Blaze, Batida apresenta: #powertothedancefloor, DJ Firmeza, DJ MOESHA 13, Fado Bicha, Gisela João, Mbye Ebrima, Mohamed Lamouri, Mourad, Piny, Rita Vian, Scúru Fitchádu, Shaka Lion, Thabiti and Tristany, among many others. Additionally, and as is to be expected, visual artists ±MaisMenos±, Caroline Mesquita, JonOne, Pedrita Studio, Unidigrazz, Vhils and Wasted Rita will present installations created specifically for the museum space.
Developed as part of the 2022 France-Portugal Season, Festival Iminente Marseille is a celebration of urban culture and the ties shared between these two countries, while also exploring the artistic diversity and similarities that unite Lisbon and Marseille. Both are multicultural cities positioned towards the world – Lisbon through its relationship with the Tagus River and the Atlantic Ocean, and Marseille with the Mediterranean Sea – and represent meeting points between a variety of cultures, extending from South America to North Africa. It is this diversity that the artists will explore, resulting in a truly eclectic and enriching programme.
