XIV. AMPHI FESTIVAL 2018
28. & 29.07.2018 – COLOGNE | TANZBRUNNEN


SECOND WAVE OF BANDS WITH FOCUS ON CULT ACTS AND DIVERSITY!

Dear Amphi Fans,

the second wave of bands for the Amphi Festival 2018 is crashing in and impresses with its strong focus on variety. Cult formations go along with newcomers, as modern dark-rock meets neo-classical perfomance and cutting edge postpunk passes on the handle to an injection of fresh electropop. Please welcome:

AESTHETIC PERFECTION
GIRLS UNDER GLASS + UNZUCHT
LEBANON HANOVER + SOVIET SOVIET + PERSEPHONE
A PROJECTION + INTENT:OUTTAKE + LA SCALTRA

In-between massive beats and exciting industrialpop hymns AESTHETIC PERFECTION have found their musical home. After the Californians' highly acclaimed show at Amphi 2016, which went totally through the roof, Daniel Graves & Co. are to return next year, ready to instigate an extra load of mainstage mayhem!

Though having become comparably seldom, every concert of Hamburg-based scene-pioneers GIRLS UNDER GLASS turns even more into a special occasion with distinct cult status. Active since 1986, not by chance the darkwave legend around Thomas Lücke, Hauke Harms, Volker Zacharias and Axel Ermes counts to the most influential scene-formations of the 80s, who inspired many acts successful today, that maybe never existed without them!

Ever since their latest album "Neuntöter" the darkrockers UNZUCHT joined life on the fast lane. Amidst an undertow of honest statements and shattering riffs the Lower-Saxonians hit the nerve of the modern generation goth, carrying their audience with unrelenting grip.

LEBANON HANOVER are a phenomenon! Subversively elegant and surrounded by their own distinct magic, Larissa Iceglass und William Maybelline create a powerful spark from a chilling postpunk attitude, honed with minimalistic darkwave and hypnotic rhythms of undeniable immersion.

Almost completely opposite SOVIET SOVIET keep no holds barred when it comes to firing off a temperamental postpunk barrage. Like Jake LaMotta in his best days the Italians literally push forward like a raging bull - relentless - tireless - full speed ahead! While their albums "Fate" and "Endless" being instant classics, the trio rightfully received strong international acclaim and recognition. 2018 they are to guest at Amphi Festival 2018 for the first time!

It has been a long time coming with the German-Austrian neo-classical ensemble PERSEPHONE. Now Sonja Kraushofer (L' Âme Immortelle), Martin Höfert and their fellow musicians finally return to present "Perle", the highly anticipated follow up to their 2007 released album "Letters to a Stranger". Exceptional vocals meet instrumental finesse. Join in, listen and let yourself be taken to another world!

The creative work of Swedish rockers A PROJECTION again is set in the realm of smart postpunk, spiced with a notable indiepop injected. Emerging from the influences of bands like The Cure, Editors and Joy Division, the five-piece around singer Isak Eriksson cultivated their unique style. With the release of their early 2017 second album "Framework" the Scandinavians ranked themselves among the most promising genre newcomers.

Andreas Engleitner and Bastian Polak, also known as INTENT:OUTTAKE, fully dedicated themselves to the world of dark-electro. Ever since the release of their debut album "Wake-Up Call" the boys from Leipzig conquered the clubfloors by storm. Even in your festival-wishlists the duo received tremendous consideration and so we are happy to welcome Intent:Outtake for next year as one of the most requested newcomers at Amphi Festival.

"Is this witchpop?", you might ask yourself in search for a fitting drawer, when LA SCALTRA sound the haunting melody of their current smasher "Cantate". Catchy, bittersweet and mysterious in themselves, Aeleth Kaven, Dae Widow and Jay Sharp radiate a fascinatingly abysmal magic by which the newcomers will take our Orbit Stage instantly.

OMD, MIDGE URE AND THREE MORE ARTISTS CONFIRMED!


Dear Amphi Fans,

today we turn back the clock to the heyday of the 80s. An era in which we “audio cassette children” (instead of our smartphones) waited mesmerized in front of our radios, circling the record button with our forefinger until they finally played our favorite song! It was the great time of Synthpop, NewWave and that hint of avant-garde that turned pioneering spirit into a time of new heroes!

We are very proud to announce OMD and MIDGE URE for the Amphi Festival 2018 – two of those exceptional artists who wrote music history worldwide.
Furthermore with GRENDEL, GRAUSAME TÖCHTER and SYNTHATTACK we also have fresh new entrances from the Industrial-Electro scene for you.

ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK, short OMD, attracted impressive attention in 2017 with their album THE PUNISHMENT OF LUXURY on which Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys and Martin Cooper staged the characteristic OMD sound as a declaration of love for the pioneering spirit of the Düsseldorf School of electronic music. Unforgotten are of course the great OMD classics: "Enola Gay", "Souvenir", "Secret", "Sailing On The Seven Seas" and of course the number one hit "Maid Of Orleans" that became the best-selling single of the year 1982 in Germany! For us it is therefore a very special honor to welcome OMD at the Amphi Festival 2018.

The latter fully applies also to MIDGE URE. The likeable Scot landed an absolute coup in 2014 when he captivated the Amphi audience with his performance. Whether as co-founder of VISAGE ("Fade to Grey"), as voice of ULTRAVOX ("Hymn", "Vienna", "Dancing With Tears in My Eyes") or as solo artist ("Breathe", "If I was") - Midge Ure (OBE) is a true gentleman of pop who uses his popularity always for charity projects as well ("Live Aid", "Band Aid"). So the anticipation is rising on this great artist’s further performance at the Amphi Festival and the related pure goose bumps.

Granted, it’s not easy to find a fitting bridge from these giants of the 80s. Nevertheless, we insist on announcing two „new heros“ of the present as well, with the first of them being GRENDEL. The Dutch harsh-electro project around J.D. Tucker began to tread new ways with their recently released 2017 record "Age Of The Disposable Body". By changing the focus to an intriguing mix of industrial-pop elements, GRENDEL expanded their own universe with a refreshingly different vibe.


With their provocative blend of electropunk, industrial and performing arts, GRAUSAME TÖCHTER always draw some serious attention. Nevertheless you should not judge the book by its missing cover. Beneath the skin burns a rebellious fire, resurfacing the temper and anachism of the early punk scene. Relentlessly biting and cruel, Aranea Peel & co. mean business and thei are to give their first stand at Amphi Festival and we're pretty sure it won't last only for one night!

Closing today's announcement, we also welcome Hanover-based industrial formation SYNTHATTACK who will take Amphi Festival’s dance floor by storm with powerful beats and a thrilling show.
