Este ano seremos uma família de mais de 29 países! Para facilitar, a info segue em inglês. Obrigado por compreenderem.

Concerts, films, Amplitalks, exhibition, craft beer bar and moments of sharing between artists and audience. We’ll do in a sole weekend what we’ve been doing all our lives: work for the sake of art with ambitious proposals.

We think that our Amplifest page has everything you need to know: line-up, performance times, directions, tickets, suggestions to visit in Porto, press contact, etc… Take a look (portuguese and english): AMPLIFEST 2019

We decided to help you to get ready anyway:

Our city is beautiful, isn’t it? Thank you for the picture, Jorge Silva.

Hard Club, with its blood-red painted iron structure, is the very heart of Amplifest. An historic building that dates back to the 18th century, 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 (Bürostage) and Sala 2 (Oitava Colina Stage), with a capacity for 1000 and 400 people respectively. Between these two rooms, a large corridor – the mainfloor (600 people) – will welcome the Dehn Sora exhibition, Craft Beer Bar by Oitava Colina, merchandise stands, record stalls and also serve as a communal area to hang out between shows.

– We’ve been doing some miracles since 2006, but here’s something we can’t do anything about: if you really want to see something at Oitava Colina Stage, make sure you’ll be there a little bit early;
– If you’re not interested in the show, PLEASE don’t ruin it by talking to your friends inside the room. Use the Mainfloor to hang out;
– Smoking inside the rooms is forbidden. Please also avoid doing it in the mainfloor – go outside the venue and enjoy the Douro river sights. We really appreciate your respect on this;

Food/ Drinks

At the upper floor you’ll find a restaurant that will serve you some sandwiches if you don’t want to miss a riff or a warm meal if you want a more relaxed dinner. There are some bars (see map above) where you can get your drink. Please note that neither the restaurant or bars are our responsibility although we do suggest you to enjoy some Oitava Colina beers.
There’s two cash machines nearby Hard Club (2 minutes walking): Rua Mouzinho da Silveira and Praça do Infante.
