Portugal is certainly doing everything it can to attract tourists back to its shores. The latest initiatives bring 1000’s of the world’s Afro-Beat and Hip-Hop lovers to Portimao for two key festivals.
Afro Nation is an annual three-day music festival based on boat and beach parties with renowned DJs performing at each alongside the performances that take place on their three festival stages.
Afro Nation took place for the first time in Praia da Rocha (about 20 minutes car ride from Casa Jovic) in 2019, welcoming more than 25,000 people (over 18’s-only). In 2020 and 2021 the festival didn’t take place due to Covid but resumed on the 1st July for the 2022 event. It’s also booked to repeat in 2023.
On our flight out from the UK this week at least half of the flight consisted of people aiming to attend the event, including a few performers that would be well known among revelers. Their spirits were high and even flight delays didn’t dull their enthusiasm. And the fun doesn't end there!
