Neopop: 18 amazing photos from Portugal's techno haven

Featuring Chris Liebing, Helena Hauff, DJ Stingray...

Neopop returned for a 12th edition in 2017, celebrating all things techno in Viana Do Castelo near the city of Porto in northern Portugal. 

Nestled between the walls of an old fort and the harbour (only a wire fence separates the toilets from a drop into the water below!), the event's two stages and capacity of between 5000-8000 people, depending on day, means it's an intimate a gathering as is possible in the current climate of massive mega-fests.

Neopop doesn't skimp on the acts however, with this year welcoming the best in big names and underground stalwarts alike, such as Chris Liebing, Helena Hauff, Maceo Plex, Loco Dice, DJ Stingray, Dr. Rubinstein and Dax J, to play throughout the night into the beautiful sunny mornings.

Check out these amazing photos of Neopop below and look out for our full review in the UK mag in October.
