Returning for a second year to the idyllic shores of the Algarve coast is The BPM Festival: Portugal. The festival will welcome a host of both established and newly found artists this September 20-23, 2018. Having revealed over fifty names during its’ phase one announcement, this year’s edition is set to be the most diverse yet and we are very much looking forward to touching down in Portimao and Lagoa. With such a large lineup we thought we’d select five of our favourite names on the lineup.
The All Day I Dream head-honcho will be making his return to The BPM Festival: Portugal, bringing his dreamy-state, party aura and melodious tones to the Algarve setting. Having hosted his parties around the globe in incredible cities like New York, London and Berlin you can rest assured for a transcendental-induced day and night of music.
Off the back of his recent ‘Love Letters’ album, Loco Dice, the founder of Desolat Music Group is also another highly-lauded artist to be making their return to Portugal. A man with swagger in his style and productions, his hip-hop instilled house and techno is something to behold; the energy and powerful exhibited by the Dusseldorf man is not to be missed.
The Martinez Brothers
One of the most exciting duo’s in the electronic scene today, The Martinez Brothers have had a firm grip on the international touring circuit for several years. The Bronx brothers are also making bold leaps into the fashion industry with regular outings to Paris and Milan to complete performances for many renowned fashion brands. Their brand of jackin’ and bumping house, coupled with their deep ties to fashion makes these some must see artists to catch in September.
The Parisian artist who made her name as resident at the legendary Rex Club will be bringing her brand of au courant and intricate techno. Already with a strong following in around Europe, Molly has gone on to gain an even stronger audience internationally with releases on Rekids and Karlovak.
Our final artist, but by no means least is the young and rapidly rising Caleb Calloway. The Puerto-Rican has garnered a reputation for playing deep and vigorous tech-oriented house. Following an opening set for Loco Dice, Calloway sparked a deserved interest in his diversity of sounds; not to mention it complementing some of the very best in the industry like Marco Carola.
