Circuito is the Portuguese association for the valorisation, protection and development of grassroots music venues and clubs. At the present day, Circuito is composed by 27 live music venues and clubs from all over the country.

Circuito aims to represent the music venues and clubs before any public or private entity, national or international; foster the structuring of this sector and promote equality and accessibility for their players; acknowledge the role of these spaces in driving the growth of new talents, supporting music from the margins, fostering artistic creation, circulation and internationalisation and operating as cultural and social mediators within their own neighbourhoods; promote its members’ activities and develop training programmes and exchange networks of artistic programming.
