Important update: EDC Europe 2021 has been posponed until 2022 due to the pandemic.
Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) recently announced the location for EDC Europe. Organizers are promising three unforgettable days & nights (‘’dusk till dawn’’) in the idyllic town of Portimao in the Portuguese Algarve, with dates set for 18-20 June next summer.
First off, if you’ve never been to the Algarve in Portugal before it should definitely be on your bucket list. Known for its stunning beaches along the Atlantic Ocean, the Algarve is one of the most sought after holiday destinations in Europe and is quickly becoming the place to experience the world’s biggest music festivals.
With this event celebrating 25 years of EDC, it’s going to be held on Praia De Rocha Beach.
In addition to 5 amazing stages and full-size carnival rides, electronic music fans can expect over 140 artists to be announced between now and next June.

Praia da Rocha is Portimão’s main beach – a relatively undiscovered sandy paradise overlooking the Atlantic Ocean…
You’ll need to fly to Faro International Airport, before making the short journey to Portimão. Taxis from the airport cost around €55 and there are also bus and coach options.
