This year the festival, which is taking place between 12 and 15 September, has a new format with the parties taking place on the beach throughout the day and night and organisers hope that by having all of the venues within walking distance of each other will make the festival the best since it first came to Portugal from Mexico in 2017.

The main events for the festival will be taking place at both NoSoloÁgua and at Blanco Beach Club and 170 producers and DJs are scheduled for the long weekend.

One of the acts taking to the stage over the weekend will be Neverdogs, two DJs originally from Italy but who have performed in the UK, Ibiza and regularly at the BPM Festival.

The Neverdogs told The Portugal News: “We love the sun, the summer and the fresh smell of the sea. Looking back at the great experience of the last edition of BPM Portugal, we can say that the beaches of the Algarve are certainly inspirational”.

The pair have been performing at the BPM Festival in Portimão since the first edition and have come to learn more about the local areas as well as them both being fans of Lisbon and Porto. They have also watched as the festival has grown and developed in Portugal.

“We believe the festival has maintained its unique essence throughout the years. It was born as a meeting point for all the professionals of the industry. During the years it has been growing until the point it became a reunion of DJs, producers and fans, still with incredible music, beautiful venues and surroundings, amazing vibes and addictive energy.

“Great success is the result of the union of various factors such as the magical location, the professionalism of the staff involved, the right publicity on social media, the artists invited, the great vibes. Surely BPM possesses all these components, making this festival an event that you can’t miss.”

Other acts confirmed for the weekend include Alan Nieves, Andrew Meller, Carl Craig, Eli Brown, Jansons, Kyle Hall, Melé, Serginho, Nitin and Francesca Lombardo.
