Festival Forte 2019

The final lineup of Festival Forte 2019 is ready

Adventurous Music and Visuals inside the Castle of Montemor-o-Velho

With the already announced line-up with great artists, Festival Forte is here with another list of performers whom they add to their roster.

Adam Mccrorie b2b Billy Iland, Alfonso Macedo, Courtesy, Justine Perry, Kids on Acid, Lamim, Marcus Henriksson aka Minilogue, Paula Temple, Ricardo, Vélez will join the already announced great line of artists.


Festival Forte 2019 will be the boldest edition ever with the presentation of artists that go over every limit to provide unique performances that have never been seen before.


Opening Performance: Murcof + Malo Lacroix – Live A/V

The Empire Line, one of the most explosive industrial techno live sets will bring an infusion of power electronics and the physicality and catharsis of punk rock.

Furthermore, Jonas Kopp presents his new live show called “Pleiadan Key Tones”. This will be a completely immersive experience.

Danish superstar Courtesy has become a true phenomena due to her intelligent and groovy dj sets, always with an acute attention to the dance floor, knowing exactly how to interact with the crowd, using her experience to select the right tracks for the right moments, mixing them in a way that is particular only to her.

Marcus Henriksson is one half of the celebrated Minilogue whose gift of transforming any travel into a hypnotic cluster, carries us into a very intimate and spacial experience. Inside the immersive walls, the experience will be unique, during a live set made of machinery that will deliver frequencies to induce a state of delirium. This is definitely a show to look forward to.

Paula Temple is on the pinnacle of her career and has included Festival Forte 2019 on her “Edge of Everything” album tour. The occasion could’t be better and the performance will undoubtedly be unforgettable as she will perform the closing set of the whole festival.

This year’s lineup of Festival Forte has been fully announced and is bringing the crème de la crème to Portugal once more.

The list is completed with Anthony Linell aka Abdulla Rashim, Boston 168, Christinne, Dave Clarke, Forest Drive West, Freddy K, Kr!Z, Lamim, Lotus Eater (Lucy & RRose), Luxor (Antigone & Shlømo), Neon Chambers (Sigha & Kangding Ray), Oscar Mulero, Phase Fatale, Polar Inertia, Reeko b2b Psyk, Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly), TR-101 (Sleeparchive & Dj Pete) and Voiski.

There is also space for a number of artists that are at the forefront of the Portuguese scene: Amulador, Apart, Caroline Lethô, Hedonic 2 and Nørbak.


Visuals will be in charge of who has been doing a sublime job during the past years in the Generative Garden, Malo Lacroix, who did the stage design and breathtaking visuals in the previous edition and the very special guest Raven Kwok, the famous artist from Shanghai, known for his work in generative art through computer algorithms and software processes. He will be doing an installation in the Raven Kwok.


Artists for the camping site are also announced: Adam Mccrorie b2b Billy Iland, Afonso Macedo, Justine Perry, Kids on Acid, Lamim, Ricardo and Vélez. They will perform a couple of hours after the castle doors close. During the afternoon we will promote rest with very low and chilled music in the camping site.

As you can see, the 6th edition of Festival Forte is bringing together yet again the crème de la crème of electronic music and arts to the magical Montemor-O-Velho Castle in Portugal from the 22nd – 25th of August.
