Lighting up a medieval fortress

Festival Forte is a techno festival in the unique and magical surroundings of a medieval Portuguese fortress. 

Filling its walls with the sounds of Helena Hauff, Antigone and Function, the festival will be putting a heavy emphasis on the audiovisual, inviting a selection of artists to project their visions onto the old bricks.

And between the festival, fans are encouraged to take a stroll around the ancient streets of Montemor-o-Velho, indulging in its cafés and local culture.
