It's fair to say that Portuguese festival MEO Sudoeste has changed somewhat over the 20+ years since the very first edition, which saw Blur, Marilyn Manson and Suede on headlining duties. But for several years now the huge coastal party has been defined by its lineups that bring together top-tier talent from the worlds of dance music, hip hop, and pop – each represented on every level of the billing.
The forthcoming edition seems more rap-heavy than ever – perhaps a reflection of growing trends in tastes of music fans across Europe right now – but there's plenty there for all manner of festival-goers. So to capture the essence of the festival's musical offerings for the forthcoming edition in Zambujeira do Mar from 6-10 August, we've compiled a playlist from a selection of this year's performers – including headliners Post Malone, Steve Aoki, Russ, Rita Ora, Vini Vici, and more.
