It began in 2005, in São Pedro do Moel, Marinha Grande, and attracted audiences from all over the world. Under the leadership of Bernardo Bernardes and Wilson Neves, the festival moved to Esmoriz. Demand for the rave increased and, from Praia do Ancoradouro, where there were many residents, the venue moved to Estádio da Barrinha to accommodate more people and not disturb anyone’s sleep. This year, the 17th edition will take place this Saturday, July 6, with 20 hours of consecutive techno.

The event promises to welcome thousands of festival-goers from all over the world, from 5pm on Saturday (6) until 2pm on Sunday (7). The spotlight will be on French artist I Hate Models and Sara Landry, a renowned female presence in techno. Other names will also be joining the lineup include Sara Landry, Shlømo and Deborah de Luca.

The Barrinha Stadium will host Brazilian PK, who collaborates with artists such as Luísa Sonza and Ludmilla, and then DJ Lemøs. Later, producers Stëh and Madson Carpenter will take to the stage. Starting at 1am, it will be Sara Landry’s turn to entertain the crowd, and DJ Shlømo, known as the “Daddy of Hard Techno”, will continue from 3am onwards.

One of the new features this year is that the venue has been expanded — there is a main stage, two VIP areas and a stage area. Other features include a Food Zone, Fast Bar and cloakrooms. If you want to remember the experience for a longer period of time, you can buy a souvenir at the festival’s official merchandise store. In addition, the typical electrifying lights accompany all the shows.

Tickets are still available online, with prices between €60 and €120.
