Festival Forte is only a few days away and we cannot hide our excitement. Having visited the past two editions – 2015 and 2016 one, we know what is expecting us: an amazing line up, unique atmosphere comprised of stunning visuals, a cool and friendly crowd and art installations all in the dream setting of a medieval castle. This year there are theatre performances for the theatre fans visiting. It is like you can have the perfect holiday, combining the best music one could hope for with sea, sun, great food and cheap prices. You can fly either to Porto or to Lisbon and then take the train to there – find here the very detailed travel options. There are many accommodation possibilities nearby. But we would recommend staying at Figueira da Foz, the queen of Portugal beaches or at the free camping situated close to the castle.
The festival program at the castle stops in the morning to continue in the late evening, but there is more happening at the free camping for those who didn’t have enough. We must admit we used the day to lie on the beach, see Figueira da Foz and visit the nearby UNESCO World Heritage city Coimbra and just stuck to partying at the castle every night till the early morning.
You can get your tickets here. Or try your luck, as we are happy to be giving away 2×2 tickets! All you need to do is send us an email at win @ localsuicide . com with Festival Forte in the subject line and the act you are most looking forward to seeing in the email.
