The PSD Madeira summer party has been adjourned to September in the wake of the recent fires. The party, traditionally held in the Chão da Lagoa, but now held in the PSD Foundation estate, was due to take place on the 22nd of July. The party ususally attracts forty thousand visitors, but this year the organizers were having difficulty selling tickets, despite these being sold for the lowest price ever - one Euro.
The star guest for this year, was the folk singer Quim Barreiros, not as popular as the previous years' attractions which have included Brasilian pop stars and the heartthrob, Tony Carreira. The singers usually perform just after Jardim makes his customary rabid speech.
