Every year, THU creates a theme and manifesto for the Main Event, and then invites an artist to bring it to life, just like the incredible Carlos Grangel did. The manifesto reflects the true meaning and philosophy of the edition, telling a story of growth.

Welcome to Portugal!

THU takes place in Tróia, Portugal, surrounded by a +15km long beach bordering the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a creative paradise where the Tribe unites and inspiration comes alive!

This is also the place where THU was born, back in 2013.
