RPMM has just launched its debut edition– a surrealist underground experience in the city of Porto– on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th July 2018. One of the oldest European cities and voted the No. 1 city to visit this year by Forbes Magazine, Porto has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1996.

Festival-goers can look forward to partying on the Duoro River, which snakes its way all through the city!

The festival’s long-term aim is to provide a platform not just to international stars, but also the local artists of the area. These artists will then be nurtured throughout the year with a series of pre and post-festival events and will eventually play on the road around Europe with the RPMM brand. Alfandega, a stunningly beautiful and historic listed build, will be the main venue for the festival. The multi-functional space is located in the historic city center of Porto, right by the Duoro river. In the 12th century, the building was a bustling center of shipping trade. It will be brought back to life by the vision of Johnny TV, who has previously worked with artists the likes of the Chemical Brothers and will make sure the 2000 people who are fortunate enough to attend RPMM will be awarded a sensory experience unlike any other.
