Weekend break


HK’s underground music fest

Summer time? Time for music festivals. Our Hong Kong neighbours know it and are planning a feast for this weekend. But not that mainstream kind of fest — they are going underground. The Underground Summer Festival will take place on Saturday, July 16, at The Attic.

Macau in abstract

Another weekend is here and there are good reasons to get out of the house — rain and all. From Portuguese painter Natália Gromicho's amazing exhibition about Macau to experimental theatre and a children's play.

Arraial in S. Lazaro

Prepare for a weekend of fun, entertainment and delicacies from the Portuguese-speaking countries, in the Saint John arraial (popular party, in English) in S. Lazaro neighbourhood.

Get out of the box

In the year that marks the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the Cultural Revolution in China (1966-1976), all of us in Macau will have a great opportunity this weekend to reflect on it – through art.

Dance, cinema and concerts

This weekend is party time. Today, June 10, is the Day of Portugal and of the Portuguese communities and there are cultural and recreational initiatives suited for the Portuguese community residing in Macau, but also for the Chinese and other communities, curious about a different culture.

Philadelphia, Rock and Rosé

This will be one of those full-of-events type of weekend. I chose three, suitable for music lovers, as well as clubbing and lifestyle fans: the Philadelphia Orchestra; a Rock and Indie night at Kampek; and the Rosé Festival.

Friday’s counterculture

You probably already have plans for the weekend. Still, for those of you who fancy a little bit of improvising, here is our pick for tonight, Friday, May 20: the Counterculture Rooftop Party at Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16.

A weekend for the arts

Art lovers, rejoice. This is a weekend for you. Today, tomorrow and on Sunday, you'll have some of the most impressive shows under the Macao Arts Festival, as well as the screening of the French Film Festival, in Galaxy Macau.

Rock/Indie or Noise

Music lovers in Macau may have reasons to smile again this weekend. There will be live performances for noise fans and rock and indie tunes for those eager to put on their dancing shoes.

Hit the beach

It is not often you get musical performances by the beach in Macau. But this weekend, you will. So, head south to Hac Sa beach, in Coloane, and add a bonus track: mixing drum sticks with BBQ sticks.
