MEO Sudoeste Festival
3 Aug 2021 - 7 Aug 2021
MEO Sudoeste is a spectacular five-day festival that takes place each summer in Zambujeira do Mar, a coastal town in the south of Portugal.
Primarily focused on dance music, the lineup regularly features giants of EDM and big room house on its star-studded lineup. But the musical offerings also extend into hip hop, pop and reggae as favourites of each scene come together for the huge summer party.
Beyond the music, the festival’s coastal location also offers music fans the chance to kick back on the beach or get amongst the waves between sets.
MEO Sudoeste 2020 was postponed to 3 – 7 August 2021, due to the coronavirus outbreak. All tickets remain valid for the 2021 edition. You can read the festival’s statement here
