The European debut of BPM is enough to tantalise the tastebuds of any house and techno lover as they announce their foray into the European festival circuit alongside an equally impressive phase one line-up.
The chosen location, Portimão & Lagoa, Portugal, seems like a masterstroke choice due to its easy accessibility from mainland Europe, providing a stunning backdrop with sandy beaches, glorious sunshine and stunning views of the Mediterranean for BPM's inaugural year.
The former shipbuilding and fishing town has developed a strong tourist interest due to its southern locality, so you can expect plenty of warmth and sunshine during their planned 4 day programme. Maintaining their focus on celebrating world-class underground talent, confirmed names for The BPM Festival Portugal include Richie Hawtin, Seth Troxler, Carl Craig, Dubfire, Loco Dice with more artists to be announced in the forthcoming months.
Widely respected as a leading authority on dance music, the BPM Festival’s latest venture brings together a selection of genre pioneers and ones to watch which are all joined together by a series of event partners that are still yet to be announced.
With certified selectors such as Nicole Moudaber, Loco Dice and Jamie Jones amongst those confirmed to perform, the initial wave also sees the BPM Festival welcome familiar faces to their Portugal edition in, Steve Lawler, Stacey Pullen and Lauren Lane. UK talents Patrick Topping and Yousef are backed by hotly tipped duo Solardo, while B2B regulars Matthias Tanzmann and Davide Squillace are also present.
The BPM Festival has continued to attract a diverse and international crowd throughout its 10-year reign and has acted as a hub for DJs and music fans alike.
As the move to Portugal signifies the next chapter for BPM’s tight-knit community were pretty sure that this four-day festival is on course to become a hugely popular addition to the European event calendar.
