BPM Festival.

Tips for your trips. Tourist information. Official websites.

The BPM Festival is an annual electronic music festival, held in Portimão (map), Portugal.

The BPM Festival, which stands for “Bartenders, Promoters, Musicians” was created in 2008 and held in Playa del Carmen, Mexico until 2017 as a post-New Year’s gathering of industry professionals. During that time it had grown to a ten-day festival with a 70,000+ global gathering of DJs, producers, revelers and industry professionals.

After ten years, The BPM Festival announced its first expansion event with The BPM Festival: Portugal, and will host its third edition this September 12-15, 2019 in Portimão, Portugal.

Praia da Rocha (map), about 3 kilometres from the centre, is perhaps the best known beach in the Algarve, with the picture postcard scene of its huge swathe of sand being widespread internationally. It’s been a busy seaside resort since the beginning of the 20th century, and it has a casino and offers an endless number of leisure activities. It also had great strategic importance in the 15th century.

It was here that the Fortress of Santa Catarina de Ribamar (map) was built to defend the harbour and the population from attacks by pirates, providing crossfire with the São João do Arade Fort, right in front in Ferragudo, alongside another extensive sandy beach aptly called Praia Grande.
