Portals Festival 2024 will take place at EartH (Hackney), London.

After four successful festivals in Tufnell Park, featuring artists such as Delta Sleep, Totorro, Mclusky, and Bossk, we took a big step up when we moved to EartH in 2023, more than doubling the festival’s capacity. 

This stunning venue includes the large Hall space for the biggest artists with state-of-the-art sound and lighting, a breathtaking converted Theatre for expansive and visually striking artists, and the intimate Bar stage for exciting up-and-coming artists.
