AMPLIFEST, OCTOBER 4th & 5th – PORTO, PORTUGAL

MUSIC, FILMS, TALKS, EXHIBITION, RECORDS… NOT A FESTIVAL, AN EXPERIENCE

Today I am spreading the good word about Amplifest, which shall take place again this year in Porto this October. For all press enquiries, please contact the organisers direct (andre@amplificasom.com).

Meanwhile, would you like to know what makes Amplifest special? Read below the inviting description by Andre and the team…

“Amplifest has been a fantastic ride since its inception in 2011. In the three past editions, we’ve had the pleasure of sharing many unforgettable moments with all of you who joined us: Godflesh in one of the first shows since their reunion; the long awaited return to our country 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, we’re 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 4 and 5 of October, 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. Thank you for joining us.”

The highlight of the Portuguese cultural programming, not only because the exemplary manner of Amplificasom’s work ethic (the promoter of this finest music festival) but also for the undeniably love that is shown for the art in every concert they have been organizing since 2006.
