Afro Nation is a Portuguese Afrobeats, hip-hop, dancehall, bashment and R&B festival held each summer on the beautiful Praia da Rocha beach, just south of Portimão.

After having to postpone 2020’s edition to July 2021, Afro Nation is raring to go again as it returns to the sunny shores of Portugal for another weekend in the company of some of urban music’s biggest artists.

Afro Nation’s esteemed 2021 lineup will feature sets from the likes of Burna Boy, Wizkid, Skepta, Davido, Beenie Man, French Montana, Tory Lanez and many more.

Alongside the main festival programme, festival-goers will have the opportunity to attend boat parties and private beach parties, with an array of DJs spread across the weekend providing the perfect summer soundtrack for a festival that is now firmly on many bucket lists.

Afro Nation Portugal 2020 was postponed to 2021, due to the coronavirus outbreak. All tickets remain valid for the 2021 edition. Festival-goers who are unable to attend, are able to resell their ticket via Festicket, which is Afro Nation’s official resale platform. You can read the festival’s statement here
