A Portuguese coastal giant
MEO Sudoeste is a spectacular five-day festival that takes place each summer in Zambujeira do Mar, a coastal town in the south of Portugal.
Primarily focused on dance music, the lineup regularly features giants of EDM and big room house on its star-studded lineup. But the musical offerings also extend into hip hop, pop and reggae as favourites of each scene come together for the huge summer party.
Beyond the music, the festival's coastal location also offers music fans the chance to kick back on the beach or get amongst the waves between sets.
The festival takes place in the coastal town of Zambujeira do Mar, close to the region's beautiful Atlantic coast.
