Not many festivals can boast their location as inside the ruins of 15th century castle, but Festival Forte is once such that can. 2019 marks the 6th year anniversary for the Portuguese techno festival and after announcing their first-round lineup in January, which included the likes of Boston 168, Dave Clarke, Phase Fatale and many others, the festival has now revealed their second-round lineup:

Amulador, Apart, Caroline Lethô, Hedonic 2, Jonas Kopp presents “Pleiadan Key Tones”, Lotus Eater (Lucy & RRose), Luke Slater, Luxor (Antigone & Shlømo), Nørbak, Reeko b2b Psyk, The Empire Line and Voiski.

Jonas Kopp presents his new live show that will be a complete immersive experience. It begins with a flair for ambient and progresses towards techno, where the paradigm of viewer-listener will be challenged. On the other hand, Reeko and Psyk will be combining their talents for their first ever B2B performance together. Dream teams are cropping up all over the festival as Lucy and Rrose will appear as the magical Lotus Eater and French superstars Antigone and Shlømo team up to perform live as Luxor, their exciting new project. Voiski will play his intensive live set, Luke Slater, a true legend, will play one of the closing sets of Festival Forte 2019 and last but not least, The Empire Line, which is one of the most explosive industrial techno live sets that can be experienced today rounds out the announcement.
