The Web3 experience of BlockDown Festival is back and continues across Europe to Algarve, Portugal on July 10–12, 2023, leading the way in merging the physical and virtual worlds.
BlockDown Festival: Portugal, hosted by Web3 creative marketing and communications agency EAK Digital, will be kicking off its second annual in-person Web3 and blockchain festival in Algarve, Portugal on July 10–12, 2023.
In keeping with the BlockDown Festival brand of hosting the festivals in unique and unforgettable locations, the Algarve Coast is located in the southernmost region of Portugal, meaning that this summer bash will offer exclusive VIP networking opportunities alongside beautiful sunsets, private beaches and boat tour excursions down the coast, including to the legendary Bengali Cave.
The festival will bring together key leaders in Web3 and the creator economy, with a focus on creative industries such as music, fashion, entertainment, sports, gaming and arts, among others. With a large influx of Web2 brands over the last 18 months, BlockDown Festival will also host speakers from major traditional brands discussing their entrance and experience into Web3. Speaking content will range from exclusive fireside chats, panels, debates and keynote speeches.
Blockown Festival: Portugal will be hosted at the Lick venue, Vilamoura, which is the largest outdoor entertainment area in the Algarve region. BlockDown Festival: Portugal will have six different realms for attendees to explore; each realm will feature different interactive experiences and activities to provide attendees with the best networking experiences imaginable.
BlockDown Festival attendees will once again bring back its nonfungible token (NFT) gamification competition to the event enabling attendees to unlock token-gated experiences and win physical merchandise, NFTs and tokens from BlockDown Festival and its sponsors.

We are excited to continue on our journey of bringing a unique festival-style concept to the industry that focuses on the enjoyment and satisfaction of our guests. Our unique mix of world-class content, arts, fashion, entertainment, music and unique networking opportunities will make this year’s event a show not to be missed for those looking for a new experience in Web3 events.”
