FORTE Festival is the Portuguese festival responsible for bringing some of the finest artists in modern dance music to Coimbra, a small city off the coast of Portugal complete with regal castle surroundings and only a small drive away from the nearest beach! Featuring Marcel Dettmann, Ellen Allien, Ben Klock, Front 242, Planetary Assault Systems, Paul Kalkbrenner, Gaiser, Extrawelt, Marc Houle, Donato Dozzy, Function and Vatican Shadow.
The festival aims to be a world reference in the panorama of electronic music, while staying focused on quality and innovation at all levels.
More acts are still to be announced!
The line-up already boasts an impressive selection of contemporary techno, prolific industrial outfits and music to lose yourself to. Now Robert Henke helps celebrate the festival’s growing significance with his Lumiere show, taking place next week at the University of Porto’s Faculty of Arts.
FORTE Festival runs the 27th, 28th and 29th of August in the beautiful setting of Coimbra. The beautiful Montemor-O-Velho Castle provides the most breathtaking backdrop for this festival. Finely curated electronics, great food and drink and enough sunshine to last a lifetime makes FORTE the festival of choice this summer.
