There’s an energy that fuels Brazil impossible to put into words. So it overflows in music, color and spice. People try to describe it, but the only way is to experience it. Since its birth in 2011, Brasil Summerfest has offered a taste of that energy, becoming the largest and most important international Brazilian music festival in the world.

The festival founded by Petrit Pula and produced by People Time Entertainment showcases a fine selection of Brazilian artists. Ranging from traditional to contemporary styles, they are connected by their ability to stir that intense energy. The two week long festival also presents film, food, art and talks, making it a true cultural display of contemporary Brazil.

Brasil Summerfest’s mission is to keep pushing cultural boundaries, spreading Brazil’s contagious fever to the wide New York public and beyond! Check out each year’s complete lineup below:
