Afro Nation festival to return to Portimão in 2023

Festival attracts thousands from all over the world

Organisers have confirmed that Afro Nation, described as the “world’s biggest Afrobeats festival”, is returning to Portimão between June 28 and 30, 2023.

The festival will once again take place at the town’s famous Praia da Rocha beach, promising to attract thousands of visitors to the Algarve.

The event was first held in Praia da Rocha in 2019, having attracted around 25,000 people. It was not held in 2020 and 2021 due to the pandemic, having made its return in 2022.

This year’s edition featured performances by several world-famous artists, such as rapper Chris Brown, Burna Boy, Davido, Wizkid and Megan Thee Stallion.

The line-up for next year’s edition is due to be announced soon.

The two cheapest tickets granting three-day access to the venue (costing €169 and €189) have already sold out, with the cheapest at the moment costing €199 per person.

There are also the premium VIP (€225) and Golden (€349) tickets which provide exclusive benefits, such as access to VIP areas and other special services.
