In 2016, we celebrate ten years of Amplificasom, with more than 400 concerts and many other initiatives; rather than just having made those happen, we have inscribed them permanently in our DNA.

These memories are part of who we are today and give us motivation to create even more memories, to realize more dreams by being able to work with artists who we truly and genuinely admire and respect.

But 2016 will also be the year of the sixth Amplifest; the end of a cycle for an event that is not hostage of any date, lineup or place; Amplifest is not a festival, not a formula and not predictable. Amplifest is an experience that lives on the strength, importance and relevance of the artists involved and their ability to bring our and your enthusiasm to the surface in every moment they are on stage; Amplifest is an experience for the curious mind, where the only barrier is the dogma, something that we try to take down with every new effort.

We do not know what will Amplifest be within two years, but we know, for sure, that the sixth edition will be the best to date and a moment of overcoming, from which we will only draw our minds, bodies and souls from after the last Neurosis’ riff.

For now, the first tremors are happening and ideas are boiling – the lineup, as always, will be handpicked, with eclecticism and without regard to any borders; an event designed to avoid overlapping shows and other inconveniences; an eruption that will shape geographies and genealogies as it sprawls. Remember, from the ashes of what we left behind, new and stronger editions have always reborn.

The new eruption happens at the weekend of 20 and August 21 in Porto, with the magma burning at Hard Club - but the experience extends from August 19 to 22. We are counting on you, as always*

One of the best musical weekends of the year.

Porto

What to do when we are preparing everything

European Best Destination 2014 — Porto

Recently elected Best European Destination of 2014, Porto is a very beautiful city, especially the downtown area known as Baixa. For those who do not know it, we advise a stroll and a beer or a glass of Port Wine at Ribeira near the Douro River, crossing D. Luiz Iron Bridge, and once in Gaia, most definitively, experience the enchantment of Porto’s sightseeing.

Near Hard Club, which is also an historic building (Mercado Ferreira Borges, a fine example of Portuguese iron architecture from the XIX century), you can visit the gothic architecture of Igreja de S. Francisco, filled with the richness of golden baroque carving, the neoclassic Palácio da Bolsa and wander around beautiful narrow alleys and picturesque streets...

A 5 Minutes’ walk will take you to Nicolau Nasoni’s baroque architecture of Torre dos Clérigos (if you can, don’t miss the chance of going up

there), visit the Portuguese Photography Center at the neoclassic Cadeia da Relação do Porto, Livraria Lello and its amazing staircase, admire Rua dos Clérigos modernist architecture, the elegant Avenida dos Aliados and the stunning tile panels of Estação de São Bento… Go a little more upwards to visit Sé Catedral do Porto and Teatro Nacional de São João, play a game of cards with the locals at Praça da Batalha and plunge in Rua de Santa Catarina’s movement...

Take the subway to visit Casa-Rem-Koolhaas-da-Música and wander a bit more to Museu-Siza-Vieira-de-Serralves and its beautiful gardens. Don’t forget to visit the romantic garden of Palácio de Cristal and the famous art galleries of Miguel Bombarda Street.

Porto is an unique city and the only one where Amplifest could ever take place!

What the press said

Accreditation until July 29th.

Hard Club

Praça do Infante D. Henrique
41º8'31"N 8º36'54"W

See location on map

An historic building that dates back to the 18thcentury, it stands in one of the most beautiful parts of Porto, with a view to the Douro river and only minutes away from the city center. Originally intended to function as a market, it has been renovated as a music venue. Hard Club holds two rooms, Sala 1 and Sala 2, with a capacity for 1000 and 400 people respectively. Between these two rooms, a large corridor – the mainfloor – will welcome the Amplitalks, merchandise stands and the record stalls and also serve as a communal area to hang out between shows.

 

Where to park: It's weekend, park safely and for free wherever you find a spot. There's an underground parking right in front of Hard Club (check the prices before enter).

 

Airport: There are many low-cost companies flying to Porto, to name few: Easyjet, Ryanair, Transavia, Vueling.

After landing in Porto, take the Metro, line E, and change to line D at Trindade Station. Leave at São Bento Station (two stations after) and walk 5min downhill through Mouzinho da Silveira street.

 

Rede Expresso (Bus): Leave the Batalha station turning right, cross the square, continue to 31 de Janeiro Street, turn left towards São Bento station and once you reach Mouzinho da Silveira street it's just a 5 min walk to Hard club.

Passos Manuel

Rua de Passos Manuel
41°08'48.5"N 8°36'19.8"W

See location on map

Dating back to 1971 and running as a music venue, a movie theater, a bar and a nightclub, Passos Manuel is one of the oldest cultural spots in Porto. Its concert hall, which offers around 200 seats, is one of the most intimate settings in the city, with its unparalleled atmosphere and perfect acoustics. Here, likely exhausted but with a smile in our faces, and enthralled by Steve Von Till’s music, we’ll gather our final memories of Amplifest 2016.

Cave 45

Rua das Oliveiras
41°08'58.1"N 8°36'53.6"W

See location on map

There isn’t a place more adequate to celebrate underground culture than the actual underground. Open since 2014, CAVE 45 set itself to fill a void that persisted in the ever growing nightlife of Porto: the non existence of a space dedicated to rock music in its many forms. Situated right in the centre of the city and with a concert room that holds up to 200 people, CAVE45 quickly became one of the most requested venues in Porto’s music scene and the ideal setting to jumpstart Amplifest 2016.
