X. AMPHI FESTIVAL 2014 – OPEN AIR
Dear Amphi Fans,
in August we already announced the first wave of artists for the 10th Amphi Festival anniversary on 26. & 27.07.2014 in Cologne. Now there is another selection of exceptional artists waiting to be unveiled. Actually our latest programme comes with 4 additional entries!
NEW ARTISTS ADDED TO THE LINE-UP
BLUTENGEL & THE MONUMENT ENSEMBLE
PROJECT PITCHFORK | JANUS | DIE KAMMER
In early 2013 we followed the release of „Monument“, the most sophisticated BLUTENGEL-album to-date, which peaked at an impressive 4th position of the German Media Control album-charts and received overwhelming praise from the fan-base and beyond. By the name BLUTENGEL & THE MONUMENT ENSEMBLE the band of mastermind Chris Pohl also embarks on a special tour this autumn to create a symbiosis between gothic and classic. Needless to say, we are very delighted to bring this mesmerizing experience exclusively to you, with BLUTENGEL´s only classic show on a festival in 2014.
PROJECT PITCHFORK are back in „BLACK“ – more powerful and charismatic than before the electro-pioneers from Hamburg adorned their latest work with hymnic melody phrases and gripping sounds between club-compatible industrial influences and picturesque soundscapes. No matter whether in a club or on the big festival stage – PROJECT PITCHFORK always aim dead center, to pick you up from the get-go! Not to forget their impressive drum-performance with two, sometimes even three drummers at the same time.
For the first time since their famous “Winterreise” in 2005 the German cult-band JANUS will also return to stage again at the X. Amphi-Festival in Cologne. The upcoming re-release of their groundbreaking concept album “Schlafende Hunde” marks the occasion for two exclusive acoustic shows at the Theater am Tanzbrunnen, played over both festival days. Other appearances in 2014 by this uncompromising band around frontman RIG and sound wizard Toby are not planned. Actually it is an equally unexpected and rare opportunity for later-born and nostalgians to experience JANUS live. Those who witnessed the legendary “Winterreise” concerts in their full chamber music outfit know that goosebumps will be guaranteed!
Also confirmed for the Theater am Tanzbrunnen we present you DIE KAMMER at the Amphi Festival 2014. With DIE KAMMER the two long-term companions Matthias Ambré and Marcus Testory joined back together to wander on the musical path of the singer-/songwriter´s art. Melancholic, morbid, sometimes with a hint of sarcasm, sometimes with a charming twinkle in the eye, DIE KAMMER take their audience on a magic journey full of genuine emotions.
