Portugal’s Festival Forte is back for its 6th installment this August 22nd to August 25th, 2019. Merging past perspectives with futuristic innovation, the festival is an unbridled celebration of both electronic music and the visual arts. To top it all off, Generative Art and the University of Coimbra are collaborating to develop the festival’s communication processes through creative coding and education practices. Hailed by many as “more than a festival,” Forte is a complete sensory experience that leaves no sense untouched. It is held in the Castle of Montemor-o-Velho, which actually predates the founding of Portugal’s nationality.
Artists adding their sonic contributions this year include Murcof + Malo Lacroix (Live A/V), Anthony Linell aka Abdulla Rashim, Boston 168, Christinne, Dave Clarke, Forest Drive West, Freddy K, Kr!Z, Neon Chambers (Sigha & Kangding Ray), Oscar Mulero, Phase Fatale, Polar Inertia, Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly), TR-101 (Sleeparchive &Dj Pete).
With many more artist announcements on the way, Festival Forte 2019 will be a spectacle for the books. The excitement will be kept in check by diligent consideration and commitment to environmental protection and tourism in the Center of Portugal.
