The 10th edition of our favourite weekend of the year will coincide with Amplificasom’s 18th birthday: November 9 + 10.We can’t think of a better way to celebrate this life-changing trip than putting on another forward-thinking edition of Amplifest.
Our passion and constant search for novelty will continue, we will always be looking for what’s musically great and emotionally powerful. We will seek the transcendent, paying no heed to labels or genres. We will commit ourselves, as always, to art and cultural enrichment – exalting eclecticism, talent, and the avant-garde.Amplifest is, since 2011, thought out and carefully designed as an experience to be lived from the first to the last second. An intense experience that creates deeply-rooted memories that last a lifetime. Don’t expect less.
Tickets are already on sale and they will be available for this price until January 1st. If they don’t sell out, a new batch will be put for sale at a revised price. Costs are incredibly high and putting on a festival is becoming more expensive every year, especially when you are an independent entity with no sponsors or funding. Still, we want to make sure the festival remains accessible to as many people as possible, so if you really want to go to Amplifest 2024 please secure your tickets as soon as you can.
As we said last year, an event like Amplifest in a peripheral city such as Porto is in itself an act of resistance and resilience. We will channel all our energies into another declaration of love for the music that invigorates us and makes us passionate.
Thank you in advance for joining us and welcome to Amplifest 2024.
Hard Club, with its blood-red painted iron structure, is the very heart of Amplifest.
One last one, everyone. The 10th edition of our favourite weekend of the year will coincide with Amplificasom’s 18th birthday: November 9 + 10.We can’t think of a bette
What to do while we are preparing everything
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 Viera’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.
