Amplifest has been a fantastic ride since its inception in 2011. In the three past editions, they’ve had the pleasure of sharing many unforgettable moments with all that joined them: Godflesh in one of the first shows since their reunion; the long awaited return to Portugal of Godspeed You! Black Emperor; the first time in Portugal of bands like Amenra, Bohren & Der Club of Gore, Ufomammut, Chelsea Wolfe, Jesu and many more, all of them giving all their energy to stun the audience; the art exhibitions at Hard Club; the engaging Amplitalks at O Meu Mercedes; the bonding between artists and audience in between shows.
These are just a few examples – if you have been here before, Amplifest are sure you have your own highlights and special memories. If you haven’t, well, this will be the year. Amplifest will be back in 2014 in the weekend of 4th – 5th October 2014, taking place in the city of Porto, which was recently elected as European’s Best Destination. This will be Amplifest‘s most ambitious edition to date: expect a challenging and eclectic lineup, expect an event from and to music lovers. This will be an edition with a lot of heart so let’s keep riding together – the path is upwards and they thank you for joining them!
