Neopop 2018: 5 Acts You Have to See

Neopop 2018: 5 Acts You Have to See

Neopop Electronic Music Festival 2021

Neopop Electronic Music Festival 2021

Viana do Castelo, Portugal

As far as electronic music festivals in Portugal go, few boast as many heavy hitters from the underground as Neopop.

Held each year in the historic port town of Viana do Castelo, the lineup consistently features a wealth of house and techno's finest. And 2018 is no different.

Ahead of this year's edition, taking place 8-11 August, we've picked out five must-see acts from the packed lineup


When the RA year-end polls were still a thing, it was basically an annual battle between KiNK and fellow countryman Recondite for top spot on the 'best live act' list. As it happens, you can see both at Neopop this year. But I'd say KiNK just about edges it in terms of performance.

Nina Kraviz

Still one of the modern flag-bearers for techno on a global scale, Nina Kraviz's sets consistently manage to negotiate wide-ranging styles and influences in a way that elevates her above so many others. 

Jeff Mills

This pick shouldn't really need any explanation. The man is an absolute legend.


St Germain 

Ludovic Navarre's blend of soulful house music and nu-jazz made him a genuine star around the turn of the millennium, under his St Germain alias. After a decade and a half away, he returned with a new album in 2015 and is now reminding everyone why they were so captivated all those years ago.

Paula Temple B2B Rebekah

Last year, Neopop celebrated the 'Art of Techno', with Paula Temple playing a key role. This time round she's got company, with fellow purveyor of the genre's most unrelenting sounds, Rebekah, alongside her behind the decks.
