When The BPM Festival announced its plans to expand to Portugal it wasn’t clear just how large the European edition would be.
Now, with 2018’s full lineup and showcases announced, there is no doubt that the festival’s organizers have built it into a festival rivaling its Mexican predecessor in size and scope.
Concluding the already huge impressive lineup will be: Craig Richards, Octave One (Live), Joseph Capriati, Kenny Dope, Magda, Frank Storm, Patrick Topping, Marco Faraone, Detlef, Latmun, Richy Ahmed and more, joining the already announced lineup that includes Chris Liebing, Jamie Jones, Loco Dice, Marco Carola, Nic Fanciulli, Nicole Moudaber, Peggy Gou, Richie Hawtin, Seth Troxler, and The Martinez Brothers, amongst others.
Another slew of showcases including Carl Craig’s Detroit Love, Dutch house collective SlapFunk Records, and Mark Knight’s Toolroom Records also join the lineup announcement. Boasting beachside parties and nighttime events across several venues in Portimão and Lagoa, festival-goers can explore one of Europe’s top destinations while experiencing a world-class festival.
Portugal’s coastal Algarve region, with its impeccable views, glittering sand beaches, hidden caves and massive limestone cliffs, will once again host the underground’s finest over four days and nights this September. Taking over the picturesque towns of Portimão and Lagoa, previously announced showcases include All Day I Dream, Cuttin’ Headz, Desolat Serán Bendecidos, fabric, FORM Music, Kaluki Musik, Mindshake Records, MoodZONE, Paradise, Stereo Productions, Vatos Locos and more.
