The 10th edition of our favourite weekend of the year will coincide with Amplificasom’s 18th birthday: November 9th + 10th. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than putting on another forward-thinking edition.

Amplifest has been, since 2011, thought out and carefully designed as an intense experience. Inspired by our past and even celebrating it, as this anniversary edition demands, but always looking into the future at the same time. Therefore, you can expect a genre-defying, boundary-pushing lineup exalting eclecticism, talent, volume, physicality and the underground avant-garde.

The full lineup is now announced and the remaining tickets are already on sale. The world is not the same as it was just a few years ago, and a festival of this scope is a risky endeavour – costs are incredibly high and putting on a festival is becoming more and more expensive with every year that passes, especially when for an independent promoter operating mostly in a peripheral city such as Porto, within an equally peripheral economy such as the Portuguese. A small and independent festival like Amplifest can only carry out its crucial work thanks to the constant support, trust and passion of people like you, so if you really want to go to Amplifest 2024, please secure your ticket as soon as you can.

We live in a crazy world that is getting darker and darker. It is very difficult to forget the tragedy and suffering of others these days. We like to look at moments like the ones we all have together during the festival as a sort of collective catharsis, as something that can offer some comfort and light. We believe we can channel all our energies into one more unforgettable, invigorating weekend of music, so that all of us involved are able to come out of it better people, warmer, happier and more engaged, individually and collectively.

United by sound and, as always, from music lovers to music lovers.
Thank you for joining us and we hope you feel at home at Amplifest 2024.

Hard Club, with its blood-red painted iron structure, is the very heart of Amplifest.

Concerts, films, Amplitalks, exhibitions, craft beer bar and moments of sharing between artists and audience. As always, we work tirelessly for the sake of art. Our Amplifest 2024 page will be updated on a regular basis with all the info you need to

For those who don’t know the city, we recommend a walk and a beer/Port wine in the Ribeira zone, overlooking the Douro river, before crossing the Luiz I iron bridge and, once on the Vila Nova de Gaia side, letting yourself be enchanted by the views of Porto.

Close to the Hard Club (formerly known as the Ferreira Borges Market), a fine example of 19th century iron architecture, it is possible to visit the gothic Church of São Francisco, the Palácio da Bolsa (“Stock Exchange Palace”) and get lost in the narrow alleys… or head the Clérigos Tower (if you have time, go up the 240 steps!), but not without visiting the São Bento Train Station and its 20,000 hand-painted tiles; exploring the Portuguese Photography Center (in the neoclassical Cadeia da Relação do Porto, which served as a prison in the 18th century); admiring the breathtaking Avenida dos Aliados; going up to the Cathedral; seeing the São João National Theater; enjoying the busy pedestrian street of Santa Catarina; or simply playing a game of cards with the old men in the Batalha Square. If you feel like exploring other areas, you can take the metro and see the Rem Koolhaas’ Casa da Música venue, walk to Siza Vieira’s Serralves Museum and gardens, visit the Soares dos Reis Museum or the idyllic, romantic garden of Palácio de Cristal, or the art galleries in Miguel Bombarda Street, or enjoy the snacks, the drinks, the record stores… so much to explore, so much to live.

And, tours aside, you can enjoy the certainty that those who visit Invicta (“Undefeated”), as we call Porto, are always welcomed with open arms and a smile. Yes, Porto is a unique city and only here does AMPLIFEST make sense.

Amplifest is more than just a festival, more than a “heavy music” festival, and it’s definitely bigger than just an array of artists that we could have seen anywhere else. It’s something else, something transcendent.

The highlight of the Portuguese cultural programming.

Ghost Cult Magazine (USA)

Amplifest is one of the best festivals in Europe right now.

Slam Magazine (DE)

We Brazilians are so jealous of the line-up.

Vice Brazil (BR)

At the end of Amplifest, we were deeply impressed; it keeps surpassing our expectations, year after year. The organizers do a flawless job, their dedication to music and culture is greatly laudable, and the fact that they’re able to set up such an impactful event is extraordinary. (PT)

Since its first year, Amplifest has been refining the weight of its line-ups and affirming itself as one of the great events in Porto and Northern Portugal.

Mondo Sonoro (ES)

Amplifest presents the advantages of a cult, or niche, festival, with an informed public that attends it with the essential purpose of listening to music, but it’s not a tribal gathering in which any sign of unbelonging is met with hostility

Jornal de Notícias (PT)

Not a festival, an experience. Amplifest’s editions get better each year.

Cvlt Nation

The commitment Amplifest has with culture and art is unbreakable, and the lineup is curated accordingly: leaving aside the superfluous and exalting eclecticism, innovation and talent in a weekend where every act is a headliner.

New Noise Magazine

The respect for the music and the audience is palpable from the first second to the last.
