The RFM Somnii festival expects “the biggest tour ever” between Friday and Sunday, in Figueira da Foz, with more than nine hours a day of electronic music and, in debut, hip hop and reggaeton, the promoter said.
The eighth edition of Somnii, the seventh consecutive year in this coastal city in the district of Coimbra, presents this year, and also for the first time, two stages: the main one in the habitual place – the north top of the enclosure installed by the sea, between the beach do Relógio and the north shore of the Figueira da Foz port – and the secondary school, mainly dedicated to national hip hop projects, at the southern tip, next to that port infrastructure, facing the main stage.
On Friday, the first day of the festival, the headliners of Somnii are DJ and Dutch producer Afrojack, number 8 of the top 100 of DJ Mag and a ‘giant’ of 2.08 meters, and the Swedish Alesso, 27 years (turns 28 on Sunday), specializing in progressive house.
On Saturday, the highlights go to DJ Snake, the Frenchman who joins electronic dance music to hip hop (and who also returns to Figueira da Foz where he performed in 2016), and Ozuna, the Puerto Rican star performing reggaeton on stage with 12 dancers.
On a day when Magnificence, Jay Hardway and Netsky complete the poster, Dj Snake takes to the stage at 10.00 p.m., preceding Blaster Jaxx (23:20), Dutchmen who were the last minute confirmation from Somnii. Ozuna is scheduled to perform at 6:20 p.m., immediately after Redfoo (5:00 p.m.), the Californian singer, dancer, rapper and DJ, best known for being one of the LMFAO’s ‘halves’, a double-hit artist such as ‘Party Rock Anthem’ Sexy and I Know It ‘.
On Sunday, the last day of Somnii (popularly known as Sunset), the highlights go to the performances of the Dutchman Don Diablo, the 7th best DJ in the world at the top of DJ Mag. At just before, at 20:50, the American rapper Tyga will be on the main stage of the festival, in a closing poster that also includes Third Party, Jonas Blue, James Hype, Lost Kings and Lvndscape.
In turn, the secondary stage will have a different curatorship in each of the three days and shows scheduled throughout the afternoon: on Friday, between 3:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., alignment is in charge of the largest national hip hop platform, Rhymes and Beats, and features Geeks Are, Spliff, Ditch, and Dealema. On Saturday, the curator is DJ Cruzfader (Black Ear, Dynamic Duo, and Coldfinger) and the lineup, in addition to his own, includes DJ Neslley, DJ Fifty, Domi, Sippinpurpp, Stik Up, Waze and Phoenix RDC.
On the last day, event promoter Swag On takes to the secondary stage of Somnii Hype Myke, Rusty and Double Cheese, in addition to Piruka, the rapper considered the champion of the national youtube.
