The BPM Festival is now firmly cemented as one of the world's must visit festivals.
The country of Portugal seems to be an increasingly prominent hotbed right now, with BPM leading the way, with a second instalment in Portimão and Lagoa on the Algarve.
Running from September 20th - 23rd, the festival takes in multiple venues, including nightclubs and beach-side venues as well as hidden coves and grottos, towering cliffs and lush beaches.
Returning favourites for this year include Art Department, Apollonia, Carl Craig, Chus & Ceballos, Danny Tenaglia, Hector, Josh Wink, Nick Curly, Lee Burridge, Loco Dice, Nastia, Paco Osuna, Seth Troxler, Alan Fitzpatrick, Chris Liebing, Davide Squillace, Jamie Jones, Lil’ Louis, Luciano, Matthias Tanzmann, Nic Fanciulli, Peggy Gou, Richie Hawtin, Victor Calderone, while first timers will include the likes of Marco Carola, Mark Knight, Nicole Moudaber, The Martinez Brothers, and Wolf + Lamb.
In all more than 140 names have been announced, with showcases led by powerhouses All Day I Dream, Circoloco, Cuttin’ Headz, Kaluki, MoodZONE and Paradise.
Even more names are set to come but, for these four days, you can already expect BPM to be the epicentre of the dance music world. Get involved and say you were there at the beginning.
