Ritual Rock Nights 2012 is a summer festival that takes place in Porto, in the gardens of the Crystal Palace.
In 2012 they celebrate 20 years of the fest.
Began in 1992 at a time when the musical landscape of Porto was confined to rare one-off initiatives, requiring therefore the birth of regular proposals, able to develop a structured way the city's cultural life.
They made an option that could not be the easiest but which seemed able to leave more lasting seeds: the emphasis on Portuguese music, creating a festival of unique character in the whole country. Thus was born the Noites Ritual, which still closes the circuit of summer national events in the Portuguese territory.
