Amplifest celebrates 4 years today!

O Amplifest celebra hoje 4 anos! Tudo começou a 29 de Outubro de 2011 e, sinceramente, parece que foi ontem que recebemos o Justin Broadrick com os seus Godflesh e Jesu. Seguiram-se mais 4 edições memoráveis, cheias de grandes concertos e momentos inesquecíveis. Já não é possível viver sem uma dose anual de Amplifest e, em dia de aniversário, fica a promessa: o Amplifest 2016 será o melhor de sempre!
