RPMM Festival comes to the Portuguese city of Porto on 28th and 29th July, and has now confirmed its final line-up, which includes Âme, Jackmaster, Margaret Dygas, Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons, Jasper James, Max Champman, Matthias Tanzmann and Alexis Raphael.
Add the likes of Francesca Lombardo, Matthew Dear, Mella Dee, D'Julz, Matt Tolfrey, and Patrice Scott, and you've got a tempting offer, with the main location for the action equally impressive; Alfadenga, a 12th Century UNESCO Heritage Site. As with Albania's Kala festival, organisers are keen to promote discovery of the wider surrounds, even going so far as to recommend record shops (Vinyl Disc, Harborage, Porto Calling, Musak), and clubs (Baxia Bar, Plano B, Gare Porto, Rum, Hot Five Jazz Spot) to check while in town.
We're expecting a similarly enthusiastic crowd to the one we got involved with at Neopop, just outside Porto, last year, and the city itself is renowned for the stunning natural setting at the mouth of the river Douro, its man-made beauty, not to mention good wine and excellent port, meaning it should make an excellent backdrop for a weekend of solidness. Take a look below if you're not already sold.
