Festival Forte is moving on to its 6th edition running from August 22 to August 25, 2019 in the Castle of Montemor-o-Velho, Portugal.
Following the principles by which it was founded, once again, the visionaries from the past will meet the innovators of the present to shape the paths for the future in electronic music and visual arts.
The first confirmations for this year are:
Opening Performance: Murcof + Malo Lacroix - Live A/V
Anthony Linell aka Abdulla Rashim, Boston 168, Christinne, Dave Clarke, Forest Drive West, Freddy K, Kr!Z, Neon Chambers (Sigha & Kangding Ray), Oscar Mulero, Phase Fatale, Polar Inertia, Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly), TR-101 (Sleeparchive & Dj Pete)
Generative Art continues central in the development of the communication of the Festival, simultaneously working with the University of Coimbra on the adventure of education and discoveries in creative coding. All will culminate in a creative and abundant dialogue inside the Castle walls. Also, the affirmation of the Center of Portugal as being a main tourist destination of the country and the promotion of ecological measures will continue to be very important concerns of the Festival. Festival Forte 2019 is here, made from the hearts of those who believe and support it, raising the bar every year to materialize visions that are nurtured only in the realm of dreams.
