Acclaimed Los Angeles festival Secret Project makes a much-anticipated return to Europe this summer by taking over Portugal’s gorgeous Praia da Rocha (Portimaõ Beach) from June 17th to 19th 2022.
The Portugal debut will be filled with house, techno, drum & bass and disco and is set to be bigger and better than ever before. A brand new drum & bass stage is added on top of the house and techno stages which will feature the likes of Adam Beyer, Alan Fitzpatrick, Charlotte de Witte, Chase & Status, DJ Tennis, Eric Prydz, Friction, Hybrid Minds & Tempza, Ida Engberg, Jamie Jones, Luciano, Maceo Plex, Marco Carola, Paul Kalkbrenner, Richie Hawtin, Shy FX, The Martinez Brothers and many more.
Secret Project Festival is an oasis of art, music, murals and live graffiti that welcomes only the most cutting-edge artists, from pioneering legends to the hottest new talents. A whole spectrum of underground electronic sound is always represented and, last year, the festival debuted to great acclaim in Europe with a sold out crowd of nearly 20,000 attendees during ADE. The festival now switches it up and heads south to Portugal for a more sun-kissed affair on sweeping sandy beaches with a backdrop of dramatic limestone rock formations and stunning views of the ocean.
Taking advantage of Portugal’s long hot days and balmy nights, music will play across all three stages, on all three days, all night long. The sub-tropical setting will add an extra dimension to Secret Project, on top of its already famous production quality and mesmeric audio-visuals. As well as the unmatched soundtrack, festival-goers can look forward to exploring a rich array of local cultures and cuisines, beach sports, water activities, restaurants, and bars during their stay in this spectacular setting.
Musically, all bases are covered by a who’s who of international talent. For techno lovers, there will be an astonishing three-way back-to-back between Dubfire, Nicole Moudaber, and Paco Osuna. Adam Beyer presents his Drumcode label with fellow techno titans Alan Fitzpatrick, Ida Engberg, ANNA, and Joel Mull, and pioneering minimal man Richie Hawtin also joins the line-up.
Drum & bass legends Chase & Status head up the new stage this year, and will be joined by the likes of Shy FX, Sub Focus, Andy C, Crucast, Wilkinson and more. Elsewhere new school talent Amelie Lens will shake things up, Ellum Audio boss Maceo Plex brings his astral sounds with label mate Raxon, while Swiss-Chilean maestro Luciano, Desolat label head Loco Dice and Ukrainian melodic innovators ARTBAT, Italian stylist Enrico Sanguiliano and globally acclaimed Eric Prydz cover all shades of techno.
There’s also plenty of house to look forward to. From cultured Italian and Life And Death boss DJ Tennis, Ibiza favourites Jamie Jones and Ilario Alicante, and a special back-to-back between Richy Ahmed and Archie Hamilton, to party-starting duo The Martinez Brothers, UK sensation Michael Bibi, Grammy-nominated pair Camelphat, and spaced-age selector Chris Stussy, as well as more from Pleasurekraft, Cirez D, and plenty of others.
With its high quality cross-section of forward-thinking electronic sounds and a stunning location, Secret Project Festival Portugal is a perfect reason to get away and party in paradise this summer.
The pre-sale starts Friday January 28th at 1AM PT / 9AM GMT / 10AM CET, and the regular ticket sale starts Friday January 28th at 3AM PT / 11AM GMT / Noon CET. Pre-registration is open until January 27th via portugal.secretproject.com.
