Orbits Festival has revealed the final wave of artists and shared details about the solidarity program and its sustainability plan. The event will also now start on June 21 rather than 22, as previously announced.

Orbits is an "intimate" event with a focus on techno, experimental, and ambient fields of electronic music. The event's aesthetic philosophy is said to find the "perfect context" in the surroundings of the São Gião camping park, near Oliveira do Hospital, at the heart of the Portuguese countryside—two hours by car from Porto and about one hour more from Lisbon. Being itself a symbol of the resilience, following the dreadful fires of last October, these grounds are said to "act as the ideal launchpad for the journey that Orbits seeks to be, of healing, self-discovery, and connection."

A carefully selected roster of artists from the techno, experimental, and ambient fields will perform over four days of performances, including the following names from the final wave of artists, some of Portugal's "most interesting" electronic artists.
