The KOVA M FESTIVAL 2016 is stated is a vehicle of communication and cultural dissemination. For 4 years, 20 days, 180 artists. 13 000 people have met around a stage that reflects memories of rural exodus and Lusophone experiences.

Kova M Festival is a Cultural Festival born in 2012 in the Bairro Alto da Cova da Moura, which is the largest and most diverse migrant population in the outskirts of Lisbon, as an initiative of the Moinho da Juventude NGO, in collaboration with neighborhood residents and local and national authorities. For four consecutive years, the Kova M Festival has promoted cultural integration and dissemination of local and African cultures through entertainment  and educational events directed at all ages, allowing residents to affirm their culture and their identities. The best art of these neighborhoods will be here.

In this fifth edition, the KOVA M FESTIVAL 2016 festival is emerging as a vehicle of communication and cultural dissemination, one of the largest or even the largest urban African festival of Lisbon. This year again, the festival will disseminate African Lusophone literature, sports, gastronomy, music and dance, also offering fun  and entrepreneurship activities, as well as debates and a cine-club.
