US dance music festival Secret Project to move to Praia da Rocha in June

Secret Project, an American festival featuring some of the most renowned dance music artists in the world, will be moving to the Algarve and taking place at Portimão’s Praia da Rocha beach between June 17 and 19.

The festival “will take over the mantle from the proposed Portuguese debut of EDC which will no longer take place as planned”, organisers have announced.

The full line-up has been revealed and boasts “a vast array of heavy-hitters and globally renowned DJs from the dance music world, with techno titans like Adam Beyer, Charlotte de Witte, Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin and Maceo Plex populating the poster alongside a wealth of drum and bass superstars: Chase & Status, Andy C, Shy FX, Sub Focus, and Dillinja to name just a few.”

Organisers add that “all of these world-renowned acts and more will be performing on the sands of Praia da Rocha – also home to Afro Nation and Rolling Loud – across three stages, from 4pm until late every day.”
