X. AMPHI FESTIVAL 2014 – OPEN AIR: New bands confirmed FRONT 242 + LACRIMOSA + TORUL
For more than three decades now the name FRONT 242 marked the essence of EBM itself. Barely any other band managed to put their stampmark as sustainably on the electronic music, than the exceptional group, formed 1981 in Brussels. Armed with forceful, multi-layered sounds, the Belgians constantly refined their secret recipe that inspired a countless number of artists. Considering this, it does not come by surprise, FRONT 242 also took a special place in the ten years of Amphi-history. So they return to the Tanzbrunnen as headliners in 2014 by the motto „FRONT 242 celebrates 10 years of Amphi“, along with a heavy load of „MORE THAN EVER“-power up their sleeves.
To carry on directly with the next headliner, we welcome LACRIMOSA. Led by singer and musical mastermind Tilo Wolff, the symphonic rockers also belong to those undisputed masters of their craft, whose name alone represents originality and a scene-inspiring oeuvre that spans more than two decades. Profound romanticism meets elaborately orchestrated melancholy, while epic-orchestral bombast and tight heavy-riffs unfurl in lavish compositions. Look forward to a touching experience and musical wide screen entertainment at its best, with LACRIMOSA´s long awaited first Amphi Festival appearance.
Amphi first-timers as well, the Slovenian electropop formation TORUL will surely stir up some dust on their own. After the release of their third longplayer „Tonight we dream fiercely“ and a tour with Mesh, early last year, TORUL entered the fast lane at full speed. Their reckless, continuously surprising sound earned them a solid reputation as one of most renowned ascendants the e-pop scene offers today.
Although we gradually approach the finish straight now in terms of the line-up, you can still look forward to a number of high-profile acts, soon to be announced. All is Amphi – so be prepared for more to come!
