Bands 2018

Mono (Jap)

Writing about legendary bands is never an easy task. Since 1999, Mono has been leaving their footprint in music, achieving a personal and unique style, from experimental ambient, to classical music to shoegaze, taking forever a privileged spot in instrumental music all over the world. Their live show will blow you away. They will welcome you ... + Info

The Notwist (Ger)

Sometimes we dream of booking for our festival those bands we play on the radio when we are on tour with our bands or just traveling with our families. Most of the times, it doesn’t work out. But sometimes, it does. The Notwist is just perfect for this year’s AMFest. On Sunday afternoon, closing the festival, representing our approach to ... + Info

65daysofstatic (UK)

65DaysOfStatic is one of the bands that re-invented the idea of post-rock for us. Think and play out of the box, break the rules, add to their music sounds that were almost forbidden in post-rock. They evolved into a more complex band, got to create a videogame soundtrack in 2016 – ‘Music for an Infinite Universe’ and they are now ... + Info

Amenra (Bel)

In a world where urgency always wins and we leave behind moments that should be forever, it's fascinating to observe the career of bands like Amenra, showing the power of work done with care, no rush and growing step by step. They have been releasing chapters of "Mass" since 2003. In 2017, its 6th volume turned them into a world top act ... + Info

Toundra (Mad)

Toundra certainly is one of the most important instrumental rock bands in Europe. Having already played ArcTanGent and Dunk!Festival and toured Europe over and over again, it’s no secret that their show is a unique experience. Fans of different genres gather to enjoy their music and we are happy to have them back at AMFest after their ... + Info

Owen (USA)

If you love music-driven emotions, you might have (or soon will) connected at some point with the music and lyrics of  Owen, the solo project of  Mike Kinsella, known as the leader of American Football - who has also played in bands like Cap'n Jazz or Joan Of Arc. All essential moments of American indie-rock. The presentation of his ... + Info

My Sleeping Karma (Ger)

This is another one we owed you. In 2016 we had to cancel their show just a few hours before they went on stage due to health issues. Since then, we have worked hard to bring them back to our festival. My Sleeping Karma will bring us instrumental rock full of stoner and psychedelic riffs for those who love fuzz and mind travel. They will ... + Info

Caligula’s Horse (AUS)

Even though prog rock in Spain is trademark of our friends of Madness Live and the main European festival is BeProg! My Friend, we now and then like to open your mind to bands (like we did in 2016 with Leprous) that belong to that complex, and still partially unknown to us, world. From Australia, Caligula's Horse will be touring Europe, ... + Info

Emma Ruth Rundle (USA)

Both song-writer and visual artist, Emma Ruth Rundle has stolen a piece of our heart with everything she has done, from Red Sparrowes to Marriages or with her latest solo project, which began with the awesome "Some heavy ocean". Amazing tracks, imaginary worlds apparently about to fall apart, music for souls coming from a person whose ... + Info

A Storm of Light (USA)

Good news for fans of post-metal and industrial! A Storm of Light, formed in New York in 2008, and leaded by Josh Graham (Red Sparrowes and head of visuals of Neurosis), will come back in 2018 with an European tour that will bring them to AMFest. Their last time in Barcelona was at primavera Sound in 2012 and that was loud! We are very much ... + Info
