MEO KALORAMA Adds Wave of Electronic Artists

MEO KALORAMA, located in the picturesque Parque da Bela Vista in Lisbon, has just announced another wave of artists for the 2024 event. The new additions will be part of the Panorama stage, celebrating electronic music from around the world. New additions ready to take over include DJ Python, Kiddy Smile, Kampire, DJ Lambo, CHERIII, Fabiana Palladino, Yizhao, Kiddy Smile, Ketiov, CC: DISCO!, Cormac, Merve, NOIA, Zsongo Club Showcase, Monobloc and Catana.

MEO KALORAMA has firmly established itself as a major event for music, art, and sustainability, with unmatched community engagement. As Lisbon’s only major annual summer festival, the third edition will continue to build between the city, its residents, and the community that has been part of this event since its inception.

In honour of the city, the festival will also introduce the new LISBOA Stage, which will showcase a diverse lineup including Loyle Carner, English Teacher, Glockenwise, Yves Tumor, Jalen Ngonda, Nation of Language, and more. Other talents include local Chelas artist Landzs, Mercury Award winners Ezra Collective, and Yves Tumor and Filipe Catto.

For the third consecutive year, MEO KALORAMA is enhancing its community engagement for the Chelas é o Sítio initiative, a project spearheaded by musician Sam the Kid. This year, the festival will showcase artists from the Chelas neighbourhood, celebrating a diverse range of musical styles. The lineup includes Muleca XIII, originally from Rio de Janeiro and now a long-time resident of Portugal, known for her rapid-fire, often improvised rap. Rap artists Vilson and Landzs will also perform, adding to the dynamic hip-hop presence. Additionally, pop artist Brisa will bring her unique sound to the stage, rounding out a programme that highlights the vibrant talent emerging from the Chelas community.

In 2023, MEO KALORAMA achieved outstanding success in waste management, reducing plastic use by 40% and diesel consumption by 7% compared to its debut edition. As the festival enters its third year, Last Tour, the festival’s promoter is reinforcing the event’s three core pillars: Music, Art, and Sustainability. This commitment is further underscored by the prestigious B CORP certification, reflecting the festival’s dedication to people  and the planet, in line with the UN’s Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals.

A major highlight of the 2024 edition is the introduction of the BALORE area, a space designed to embody sustainability, safety, social engagement, and purpose. Visitors to this area can learn about the festival’s values and its commitments to environmental and social causes.

Key features of the BALORE area will  include:
