VII. AMPHI FESTIVAL 2011 – THE ORKUS OPEN AIR
ANOTHER SEVEN BANDS CONFIRMED!
we had a furious start and it´s getting even wilder. While, shortly ago, DEINE LAKAIEN joined the circle of the Amphi Festival 2011, the next arrivals are already in the pipeline. Again we even have another seven bands to announce, offering a wide range from dark industrial beats to a heavy load of mediaeval rock, enriching the diversity of the programme.
Today we start with a band that ranked very high on your wishlists: [X]-Rx ! The industrial-rave gods from Cologne are burning to unleash their electronic behemoth in front of their home crowd and we are extremely happy to present this special highlight on the Amphi Festival 2011.
Not a single bit quieter, there will be another encounter with EBM legend Claus Larsen as the musical one-man-army LEÆTHER STRIP. Vanished from the stages for many years, the hard-working Dane returned with a heroic live-comeback in 2009. Encouraged by these celebrated shows Claus Larsen takes the Amphi Festival in sight again for 2011.
While FROZEN PLASMA continue to work on the follow-uo to their successful 2009 album „Monumentum“, we most recently received their confirmation for the Amphi 2011. So Vasi Vallis and Felix Marc are going to enrich the programme with an extra share of high-class electro-pop.
With their equally sophisticated and experimental compositions and their unique stage presence KIRLIAN CAMERA are without question one of the most fascinating acts in the electronic music scene. After forming the band in 1980, mastermind Angelo Bergamini looks upon a moved history that spawned countless genre classics, like the unforgettable „Eclipse“.
With its musical creations the swedish duo ORDO ROSARIUS EQUILIBRIO explores the space between the poles of acoustic guitars, cyclic soundscapes, strings and percussions, creating a musical image of the impending apocalypse, combined with the orgies of the ancient Rome.
SUBWAY TO SALLY and SALTATIO MORTIS are two of a kind that need no further introduction. Their names are synonymous for folk- and mediaeval rock on the highest level. While SUBWAY TO SALLY have proven their reputation as a legendary live-band for almost twenty years now, SALTATIO MORTIS stormed the German album charts in 2009, peaking in the top ten with their latest studio album „Wer Wind Saet“. Let yourself be infected by the joy of playing and experience both bands while they are calling for a dance at the Tanzbrunnen.
THE THEATRE PROGRAMME – FIRST FACTS
For 2011 we are also preparing an interesting programme for the “Theater am Tanzbrunnen”. Currently we are working on different ideas that will be announced in the upcoming weeks and months and we even have two great acts already confirmed.
Following the tremendous success of last year´s performances, the forensic specialist DR. MARK BENECKE returns to the Amphi Festival in 2011 with another of his entertaining and informative talks. This time he is going to speak about „Vampires among us“.
In addition to that the Theater am Tanzbrunnen provides the perfect stage for PERSEPHONE. While performing, Sonja Kraushofer (L`Âme Immortelle), Martin Höfert and their band always create an incomparable atmosphere, by combining the intimacy of a chamber ensemble with the dynamics of a musical performance. Impressive and intense Persephone also know how to count the moment of surprise on their side!
With PERSEPHONE, performing at the “Theater-Stage”, the line up of the Amphi Festival 2011 will be enhanced by one additional band to a number of 35 musical acts, plus the upcoming artists, performing the supporting programme.
