COVID-19 forced the cancellation of Dream Weekend this year, but the promoters of the annual event already have their eyes on big things for 2021.

The event is heading to Portimão in Portugal from July 1 to 3 next year as part of major beach festival Afro Nation.

“Just when you thought #ANP2021 couldn’t get any bigger 💥! We are bringing you Jamaica’s No.1 party experience @dreamwknd as an additional stage,” Afro Nation said in a recent Instagram post that was reposted by the Dream Weekend organisers.

It is said that the Dream Weekend stage will feature the biggest names in dancehall, soca and reggae.

While acts like Popcaan, Mavado, Beenie Man, Koffee, Chronixx and Kranium are booked to appear at Afro Nation, it is not yet known if they will be on the Dream Weekend stage. Nonetheless, the event will also have performances from international acts like Chris Brown, Burna Boy, Rick Ross, Davido, French Montana, Wizkid, Patrice Roberts and Machel Montano.
