Amphi 2017
Amphi Festival
Starts: 22-07-2017
Ends: 23-07-2017
Tanzbrunnen
Köln
DE

As on 22. & 23. July 2017 more than 12.000 members of the goth-scene from all over the world flock again to Tanzbrunnen Cologne, the Amphi Festival opens its portals for the thirteenth time. Successing last summer´s highly acclaimed return to its long-term venue and being awarded a silver star for its first decade of collaboration with the Tanzbrunnen, Amphi Festival 2017 content-wise spans a bridge between tradition and modern zeitgeist.

Taken as a whole, a wealth of 42 bands wait to please the crowd with magnificent shows, including the two thrilling headliners VNV NATION and EISBRECHER, both behemoths of live-entertainment and yet so different. Electronic enthusiasts will equally be served as the fans of chunky riffs! Outright the same goes for the rest of the programme, which, among many more, hauls the deeply rooted British goth-rock instance FIELDS OF THE NEPHILIM to Cologne. Leading acts like APOPTYGMA BERZERK, COMBICHRIST, HOCICO, DIARY OF DREAMS, LORD OF THE LOST and EBM- / industrial rock pioneers DIE KRUPPS herald of what might be regarded as the strongest Amphi line-up yet.

Concurrently the promoters focus on expanding the festival’s future legacy. More than one third of the programme consists of bands and projects to make their first Amphi appearance in 2017. Among them Swedish synthpop shooting stars KITE, epic-electronic rockers LEGEND from Iceland, British postrockers ESBEN & THE WITCH and dreampop formation BOX & THE TWINS from Cologne, who take the honor of opening the stage at MS RheinEnergie on Saturday afternoon. Only introduced last year, the KD fleet’s flagship becomes Amphi Festival’s swimming venue again, ranking to the phalanx of Tanzbrunnen’s open-air stage and the Theater am Tanzbrunnen, ready to provide various concerts (indoor), a well-praised gastronomical offer and the enjoyable lavish sun deck as the picturesque chill-out area in front of the historic city panorama.

Of course a successful Amphi Festival won’t miss out on the fabulous beach club “km 689”, nor the mead lounge, located at the center fountain construction. Festival guests may also look foward to a wealth of assorted merchants, autograph sessions with the stars and after-show parties.
