BPM Festival is a must-visit event in the annual dance calendar. It now takes place in Portimão and Lagoa, Portugal and the second edition ran from September 20-23, 2018. The whole event was bathed in glorious sunshine, the food and drink is affordable, the parties and venues were magical and the sunsets each night to die for.
Acts, brands and labels like Cuttin Heads, fabric, Hector, Ryan Crosson, Neverdogs, Magda, Seth Troxler, Peggy Gou, Richie Hawtin and all played fantastic sets to a crowd of people that came from all over the world. The vibe was friendly and inclusive and people went home happy and already talking about 2019’s event.
