NEOPOP FESTIVAL CELEBRATES 15TH ANNIVERSARY
In the midst of mountains and sea, astounding beaches and impressive landscapes, Portugal’s biggest electronic music festival NEOPOP will return in two weeks – from the 10th to 14th of August, 2022. The festival’s 15th anniversary will be extraordinarily celebrated in the coastal town of Viana do Castelo, near Porto. It is said that within the area’s historical riches, sumptuous cuisine and dramatic scenery many stories have been unfolded and memories made.
After two years of silence not being able to dance at festivals we’re finally ready, and all set again to follow our love for electronic music – Numéro Netherlands is thrilled to join this year’s long-awaited edition of the NEOPOP Festival!
NEOPOP’s diverse and inclusive lineup this year will merge together the sounds of the electronic music’s forefront and underground. We are beyond excited to dance to the industry’s biggest names and most up and coming underground talents on the festival’s two stages – the Neo Stage and Anti Stage.
The high quality lineup includes some of our favorite artists in electronic music, such as Korean-born and Berlin-based creative Peggy Gou, a true icon also in fashion and culture. The worldwide celebrated all-round talent is contributing to the modern electronic music scene and alternative culture like no other.
Chicago- and New York house pioneer Honey Dijon will bless us with an electrifying set as well. The exceptional artist known for masterfully blending the diverse genres of electronic music has excelled in the most prestigious clubs and underground spaces while also being exceedingly active and influential in fashion and contemporary culture.
We cannot wait to also experience the highly anticipated performances from Richie Hawtin, considered a pioneer and leader in the electronic music scene, Amelie Lens, who is at the absolute forefront of the current techno scene, and one of minimal techno’s biggest names – Riccardo Villalobos. Other big artists who will provide us an unforgettable time are techno titan Nina Kraviz, emotions-triggering Solomun, Dax J with raw and uncompromised techno as well as funk-, soul-, and hip hop-influenced Loco Dice. Among our favorites fulfilling this year’s lineup also are Courtesy, DJ Nobu and Jeff Mills.
From the (semi-)underground there will be the most rising and talented artists present as well. The erratic and innovative Hèctor Oaks, overwhelmingly energetic Anastasia Kristensen, FJAAK, Daria Kolosova, Adiel, Dr. Rubinstein, and Carlota Marques will bring the heat and fresh breath to this year’s edition.
You can purchase passes for the full experience for 90 euros here, while those tickets acquired in 2020 or 2021 will be valid without further action.
Join us on this 4-day long musical celebration of NEOPOP Festival 2022 – a truly memorable event you do not want to miss!
