MUSIC, FILMS, AMPLITALKS, EXHIBITION, RECORDS... NOT A FESTIVAL, AN EXPERIENCE
Amplifest reaches its fifth edition. What once started as a dream is now an established reality; one that leads hundreds of music lovers to Porto in order to experience it. It's not one more festival – Amplifest is the event that sums up the whole philosophy of Amplificasom in a weekend that is intended unique and unrepeatable. Anyone who has visited us before is aware of what we’re talking about: the intimate atmosphere between music lovers and musicians, the impromptu collaborations on stage, the discovery of a new favorite band, the friendly discussions at the Amplitalks and, especially, all the lasting memories that are created.
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. Amplifest returns to Hard Club, in Porto, in the weekend of September 19 and 20. There we’ll gather as family. The family we have become and to which all are welcome. We promise you another unforgettable edition. See you soon*

Hard Club, with its blood-red painted iron structure, is the very heart of Amplifest.
We do believe Amplifest is something to be lived in its entirety.

What to do when we are preparing everythingEuropean 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!

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).
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.
