Don’t even know where to start. Having been at this magic festival since the very 1st edition and this being the last one, in the stunning Adriatic surroundings, it is quite emotional to get my mind back there and put into words something that is quite indescribable.

I knew it was going to be special, but it was it was epic instead, in every single way. 1 week sharing the best quality Music on the planet, with so many friends, who in fact I call Family, beautiful smiles all around, is something I am truly grateful for. Instead of being sad about this being the last one, we were all committed to having the happiest time. And damn, we had it! And this time we were a crew of 12 Portuguese House warriors.

Hard to choose the highlights, there were so many. From the Body & Soul night in Barbarellas to the Chicago Chosen Few DJs Boat Party, many best ever moments occurred. At the stunning Beach Stage taken by the UK’s finest DJs Neil Pierce, The Journey Men. The Djoon crew Sunday all day. The Olive Grove with DJ Spen and Dawn Tallman live. The mighty Chicago’s Chosen Few night with special guest Kenny Dope. The Cabeau Afro Cruise, with Manoo. Osunlade who took us on a music journey ever ascending into Afro-house heaven. Dancing in the moonlight… Sarah Main glamour in Barbarellas, Quentin Harris US sounds. Young Pulse disco heaven in Olive Grove, that closed with Rich Medina and a brilliant live appearance from Children of Zeus. The Beach Stage on Tuesday with our Portuguese Djane M.Dusa and closing with Jovonn and the legendary Tony Humpries…

The usual massive festival line up matches the best dancefloor crowd, creating the perfect connection. The music quality alongside that atmosphere, the energy and passion for the Music is just breathtaking. Plus, the official SUNcéBeat dancers, always moving around each stage, taking that dancefloors vibe to another level.

Nothing but Love and a huge Thanks to Alex Lowes, Nick Connoly and the whole team, for joining our fantastic Music Family once again and please our ears the way no one else can do. Now back home from my annual summer escapism, fully recharged and with my heart and soul filled with joy and gratitude for the amazing time and lifetime memories collected.

Whatever comes next, the Magic will surely happen again. In the meantime, the mighty Southport Weekender will take place in March and will bring us all together again under one House. Can’t wait.
