With your support, this festival will go beyond utopia and create a space-time of how the world can look like!

Thumbs up!

The HitchFest is a gathering around travel, ecology, activism, art and self-discovery.

From July 31st to August 4th, we drop our backpacks by the Sousa River, in Lousada. We go beyond utopia and create a space-time of how the world can be like. We share experiences and knowledge collected on the road. We learn to discover ourselves, to trust life and to act to transform the world.

It is a place where we all have the freedom to participate. With our time, our knowledge, our energy, our money.

We overflow with enthusiasm and talent to co-create, for the second time, a magical event. What is missing: a little financial push! If everyone gives a little bit of what they have, we will make it happen.

By participating in this crowdfunding you are also already ensuring your entrance in the festival! Waiting for you at the HitchFest you'll have a deep thank you, a welcome hug - and a reward :)

If you want to support us but you can not come to the festival, all good, you will receive our our big thanks and your reward at home!

At the HitchFest there are no tickets. The entrance is by an open and conscious donation. This allows everyone to participate, regardless the size of their wallet, and holds us all responsible for the beautiful event we co-created. It’s a small ride on the road for a more just, conscious and supportive world.

About the author

The HitchFest was born from a dream of four young passionate travelers, who did not even know each other.

With a network of enthousiastic people, we have voluntarily created an original and unique festival in Portugal and in the world.

The first edition was in August of 2017 in Marco de Canaveses. During those days, a thousand people passed by, coming from 45 different countries, and magical connections were made. This summer, with everyone’s help, the dream will again become reality!

Jam entre viajantes e grupo de música tradicional local

    Malta, só para referir que a partir dos 50% de campanha financiada, a plataforma PPL começa a divulgar nas suas redes sociais e contactos, sendo que ficaremos com mais chances de atingirmos os objectivos! Estamos a ficar perto desse objectivo. Ajudem-nos a chegar a esse 1º patamar nos próximos dias partilhando com o vosso círculo, família e amig@s ;) Obrigad@s pela vossa ajuda!

    Hey dear HF supporters, just to mention that once the campaign is 50% funded, PPL starts spreading the word in their social networks and contacts, and we will be more likely to achieve the goal of the 4500€! We are getting closer and close to that goal. Please help us reach this first level in the next few days sharing this campaign and talking with your family and friends ;) Thanks for your help!
