Disclosure and Jessie Ware are among the latest additions to the line-up of the inaugural MEO KALORAMA Festival in Portugal. The event, which will run from September 1-3, will take place in Bela Vista Park in Lisbon.
The festival said in a statement: “There is a new era coming. One that knows how to enjoy every moment as it truly is – unique and unrepeatable. September 1, 2 and 3, 2022 at Parque da Bela vista in Lisbon. An age that comes with a thirst to touch, to look, to feel. The one who wants hugs instead of likes, smiles instead of comments. Lisbon will travel back in time and experience the true meaning of live music.”
The Chemical Brothers and Arctic Monkeys will headline the first two nights of MEO KALORAMA (September 1 and 2 respectively), with the likes of Kraftwerk, James Blake, Bonobo, Róisín Murphy, Years & Years and Blossoms also on the bill.
MEO KALORAMA have added more names to their line-up this week, with Disclosure set to top the bill on the festival’s final night (September 3).
Jessie Ware, The Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, Crawlers and the Brazilian artist Marina Sena have also joined the line-up, which further includes Golden Slumbers, Xinobi Live, Club Makumba, Fred, D’Alva and Bruno Pernadas. You can find tickets and more information about MEO KALORAMA Festival at the event’s official website.
Jessie Ware will also perform at Glastonbury, The Mighty Hoopla, Parklife, The Isle Of Wight Festival and Primavera this summer. Meanwhile, Disclosure are set to make headline appearances at Boardmasters and All Point East Festival in August.
MEO KALORAMA headliners Arctic Monkeys are expected to release new music later this year, with their drummer Matt Helders revealing earlier this week that the band’s next album will be in a similar vein to 2018’s Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino.
“I mean, it’s never gonna be like [2012 ‘AM’ single] “R U Mine?” and all that stuff again, you know, the heavy riffs and stuff,” he said. “But there are riffs in there and [it’s] a bit more up-tempo, even though it’s not loud… It’s hard to explain!”
