The shores of the river Rhine in Cologne are once again calling for us this summer. End of July is Amphi time! Since 2005 the two-day festival has been luring dark music lovers from all around with a high-class, diverse, international line-up ranging from Synth Pop to Industrial and Post Punk to Dark Rock. Traditional and iconic artistes share the stage with modern and rising acts promising a multi-coloured black celebration at the “dancing fountain”, the Tanzbrunnen, in Cologne.
VNV NATION and EISBRECHER will once more be headliners of the festival. THE BIRTHDAY MASSACRE were absent from German stages for quite a while, so it is a big pleasure to welcome them on Amphi Festival, with a new album in their luggage. DIARY OF DREAMS are steady guests at the festival and will play one of their rare German shows 2020 at Amphi since the band is currently working on their new album, promised for autumn this year. ZEROMANCER from Norway also are working on their new album to be out in autumn and before, they will be also guests at Amphi. The mix of Gothic, Wave, Synth Pop, Electronic music and Post Punk surely offers something for anyone.

Amphi stands for musical extravaganza for all Electro and Dark Rock lovers taking place around the open-air Main Stage, the indoor venue Theatre and aboard the MS RheinEnergie. You may also relax and take a break at the popular beach club “KM 689” or have a drink at the mead lounge at the fountain. Another hot spot you also don’t want to miss is the gothic-market for a stroll and some shopping. And of course there will be some signing sessions to meet and greet your favourite artists.
The special opening event “Call The Ship To Port” is taking place for the seventh time this year. On July 24 Europe’s biggest domestic event ship, the MS RheinEnergie, will take 1,333 guests on a boat trip across the Rhine together with three exclusive live-acts to kick of the Amphi-weekend: FORCED TO MODE, WELLE:ERDBALL, and S.P.O.C.K will make this cruise memorable, that is for sure.
