Chemicals in the Algarve

MANCHESTER duo, the Chemical Brothers, are set to headline a 24-hour non-stop dance music festival on July 17 at a beach in the Algarve, although the exact location has yet to be confirmed.

The last time the duo, Tom Rowlans and Ed Simons, performed in the Algarve was at the Sudoeste Festival two years ago. The company organising the event, Show 4U, has revealed that it is expecting an audience of around 25,000 people to party through the night as more than a dozen international DJs perform hour-long sets. Graffiti art, radical sports and street entertainment will also feature at the 24-hour party.
