Road to Neopop 2024

8-10 August // Viana Do Castelo, Portugal

Amelie Lens, Jeff Mills, Oscar Mulero, Richie Hawtin, Chris Liebing b2b Luke Slater, Enrico Sangiuliano, FJAAK Live A/V, Klangkuenstler, and Reinier Zonneveld Live are some of the names rounding off the lineup for NEOPOP Festival 2024. After an intense unveiling of the initial artists for the next edition of NEOPOP Festival, which is set to take place at Forte de Santiago da Barra in Viana do Castelo, Portugal, on 8-10 August, we’re ready to go full-throttle and present the complete lineup.

Thursday 8th August

On the inaugural day, the prelude to one of the biggest celebrations of dance music in Portugal will be led by artists like Joseph Capriati. The Italian combines a relentless work ethic with a keen ear for the perfect groove and unparalleled charisma, and has become much more than a global spokesperson for the Neapolitan techno and house scene.
The Italian star won’t be alone, however, nor is he poorly accompanied. The lineup for the day includes Enrico Sangiuliano, who, although a compatriot of Capriati, offers new sonic narratives with which to tell the story of techno.
Jennifer Cardini brings house music to the table, sometimes leaning towards the gothic but always seductive and canonised in remixes such as “Surrender” and “Sentiment Acide,” anthems that will forever echo on dance floors from Berlin to Ibiza.
On faster tempos we’ll feature a b2b performance between BIIA and Victoria, a pair known for their seductive crossroads. They will present us with the intensity for which they’ve become so well-known within the techno community.
In live act format, we welcome Reinier Zonneveld, an artist whose care for contemporary techno has stood out over the past few years, with a series of electrifying performances.
Finally, to wind down, the first day of NEOPOP Festival will also include names such as Ivan Smaghe, and Ogazón b2b Ryan Elliot, artists known for their pursuit of groove and pure pleasure on the dance floor.
These are some of the names who will join those previously announced, including Indira Paganotto, KETTAMA, Nico Moreno, DJ Lynce b2b Violet, and Frank Maurel.

Friday 9th August

The second day of the Festival features one of the most eagerly anticipated moments on the bill. Chris Liebing and Luke Slater, two pioneers of the techno scene who have consistently innovated throughout the years, join forces for one of their rare b2b performances. Expectations couldn’t be any higher.
Klangkuenstler makes his absolute debut at NEOPOP Festival. The Berlin-based producer revives the early 2000s and gives it a modern twist whilst combining it with industrial techno and a hellish atmosphere. An intense live presentation we all crave to experience.
Freddy K has remained tirelessly active, playing musical marathons which often exceed 8 hours, where his deviant selections are complemented by a 360º overview of techno music. A long-awaited return to NEOPOP. One of the biggest highlights in our agenda, KiNK is also making a return to NEOPOP Festival with his acclaimed live act. He’ll be renewing his commitment to a stage where he demonstrated the raw power of funk within house and techno.
These are some of the most anticipated acts of the second day of the Festival, and will be joining other artists we’ve announced beforehand such as Dax J, Héctor Oaks, Jeff Mills, MOCHAKK, Rui Vargas, X CLUB., amongst others.

Saturday 10th August

We’ve reserved the performance of German duo FJAAK for the final day of NEOPOP, an anticipated performance ahead of the release of their new LIVE A/V show based on the album “FJAAK THE SYSTEM” next May. From UK breakbeat to techno, from 2-step to D’n’B, this is an album where genre boundaries dissipate and only groove remains, and its adaptation to the electronic stage one of the most eagerly-awaited of this year’s edition.
A further highlight is the performance by the Iberian duo Lewis Fautzi and Oscar Mulero, an explosive b2b combination that will traverse the sinuous roads of techno.
Saturday will also mark the debut of Dutch artists Mary Lake and KI/KI and both will be performing in a rare Live Act format. Expect a journey of exploration through the various facets of dance music.
IMOGEN, Interstellar Funk b2b Priori, and James Ruskin are other highlights of the day and will be joining acts such as Amelie Lens, Richie Hawtin, and Sama’ Abdulhadi.
