FESTIVAL FORTE is here to stay. It is committed to the dissemination of cutting edge electronic music, in combination with new trends in contemporary culture, in conjunction with visual and performing arts. The Festival takes place in the Montemor-o-Velho Castle, national heritage of Portugal, and stands out for the relevance and quality of its content and the excellence of all the services available to the public. It promotes a meaningful synergy between the audience and the physical setting of the festival.  Relying on a careful selection of music and visual content, tailored specifically for each show, the concept of FESTIVAL FORTE reflects these convergences, creating a space that generates experimental dynamics between sound and image, enhancing the human ability to see and hear.

Innovation is present in all aspects of the festival, including the design, which is now based on generative art and involves the main players of this scientific area. All artwork, including the cover of this EP is based on generative algorithms.

Musically, this release translates into the message that is underlying the whole concept. It has been originally produced by Expander and is remixed by formidable artists such as Apart, Shcuro and Vil.

#HOWFORTEAREYOU was one of the official hashtags of the 2016 edition and is also the name of this special edition release.

FESTIVAL FORTE 2017 will take place between August 24 and 26. It will surely exceed itself as this is the goal of each edition, always raising the bar higher.
