Here is the press release:
IX. AMPHI FESTIVAL – OPEN AIR 2013
Dear Amphi Fans,
the 8th Amphi Festival 2012 – „The Orkus Open Air“ is over and what a gorgeous festival it was! On 21. & 22. July Germany´s most iconic Gothic cathedral – the Cologne Cathedral – peered yearning glimpses to the other side of the Rhine, in painful desire to join the dance, when once again, over 16.000 attendants from all over the world began to celebrate their subculture under perfect festival conditions.
On behalf of the entire Amphi Team, we want to submit our sincerest thanks to all attendants for a gigantic AMPHI FESTIVAL 2012. You are AMPHI! Also we want to thank all bands, DJs, readers, traders, helpers, media partners and sponsors, our phenomenal crew, everybody from Tanzbrunnen Cologne, our club-partners, our street-team and everybody else involved in this exciting event.
After this incredible weekend awareness feels tough, that we have to wait for another year to finally meet each other again. Yet there´s one thing you can count on: the Amphi Festival returns in 2013 and it will be awesome!

FINAL RESULT OF BENEFICIAL AUCTIONS
Before the Amphi Festival 2012 we auctioned various site-fence banners for a good cause on Ebay. These auctions generated an amount of 637,90 €. After the Festival we added another special site-fence banner with signatures of various artists, which generated 174,10 €. Together with the donations made at the box office and the service point during the festival, we collected a total amount of 933,65 €, which we are pleased to round up to a sum of 1000,00 €!
Within the next couple of days we are going to hand over 500,00 € each (!) to the “society for the prevention of cruelty to children” in Garbsen ( http://www.kinderschutzbund-garbsen.de ) and to the “animal home Hanover” ( http://www.tierheim-hannover.de ). Thanks to everybody who contributed to this donation!
Your Amphi Festival Team
