Portugal’s Neopop Festival Offers Free Entry on the Opening Day with St. Germain, Ivan Smagghe and Many More!

In 2009, Neopop was developed after changing it’s name from Anti-pop. It is now in it’s 14th edition at the Viana Do Castelo in Portugal and takes place from August 8th to 11th. Said to be Portugal’s most respected festival, Neopop features the best in techno in the world. The festival features two stages in the coastal town with astonishing views for the Lima River.

The opening night will have free entry on Wednesday, August 8th and feature St. Germain live, Ivan Smagghe, and many others. On Thursday techno legends such as Ben Klock and Solomun will take to The Neo Stage along with Adriatique, Appolonia, Agents of Time, and many others. Saturday will see the likes of Jeff Mills, Joseph Capriati, Len Faki, and Ricardo Villalobos and Sunday we will witness Josh Wink, KiNK live, Marco Carola, Nina Kraviz, and Paul Ritch headline.

The festival might be a little known secret around the world but to the Portugese, this is one of the best festivals on the continent. Unfortunately the states just don’t have backdrops or architecture quite like Europe or the rest of the world does. For tickets and more info visit: neopopfestival.com
