The summer sensation returns
Set on the beautiful Praia da Rocha, just two miles south of Portimão in Portugal, among the abandoned ruins of a 17th century fort, Afro Nation Festival brings top quality Afrobeats, hip hop, dancehall, bashment and R&B to the thousands of music lovers who've made the journey to the Algarve.
Known as the biggest urban music beach festival in Europe, Afro Nation Portugal boasted the likes of Davido, Wizkid, Burna Boy, Femi Kuti, D'banj and Busy Signal at its debut edition, with other events in Ghana and Puerto Rico across the year hosting similarly star-studded lineups.
Alongside the main festival programme is the chance to attend boat parties and private beach parties, with an array of DJs spread across the weekend providing the perfect summer soundtrack. And with tickets for the debut edition selling out in less than 24 hours, the festival is already established on many music fan's bucket lists.
The 2020 lineup will be announced closer to the festival.
Afro Nation Fest will take place on Portimao’s main beach, Praia da Rocha.
