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.

Every July, 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 weeklong festival is presented in multiple venues across New York such as Central Park SummerStage, Celebrate Brooklyn, South Street Seaport and many more.

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:
