(before the fair opened)
For the forth time in a
row (and the fifth year of existance of this fair), Elvis 100% was present
during Vintage Festival, at the International Lisbon's Fair (FIL),
between 03 and 07 October 2018, with its own stand and activities
promoted by us, with the presence and sponsorship of Motoclasse.
RTP marked this fifth
edition with its Memory channel, with shows broadcasted directly from
FIL, with the presence of many figures that still mark today the "box that
changed the world", such as Júlio Isidro,
Nuno Markl, Fernando Alvim, Álvaro Costa and Inês Gonçalves.
The new aspect this year was the participation of Radio M80, as the
official and sponsor radio channel of the Vintage Festival.
It was with determination, passion and work that we marked our presence at
Vintage Festival in Pavillion 4. Just like in previous years, we have given
invitations and free tickets to members and friends of the fan club
who wanted to visit us. We have exhibited Elvis Presley material, an
Honda C110 motorcycle model (red version, exactly like the one Elvis rode in
Viva Las Vegas) and had live performances by
the Vinyl Gang, in our stand, who have covered hits of the King's (and
career. We have met friends, made new ones and new contacts (it happens all
the time!) and we also had fun. We were just sorry that not all the
ones who wanted to be present could not do so and that we haven't managed
(it's lots of things!) to photograph all the friends and fans that came by
our stand. We leave you, however, with some photos on what happened over
there, not forgetting to advise a visit to the photo album that we have
published in our Facebook page (see the link below) where many, many other
photos are posted with better quality.
Our appreciation to
FIL for the invitation and the organization.
As in 2018 the 50th Annivesary of Elvis'
Comeback Special is celebrated, we have paid a small tribute to that
moment in our stand, with allusive items.
