AMFest 2020

Dear friends,

AMFest 2020 is still looking for a suitable venue for the festival this year. Since the end of last year’s edition the team is working hard to find a venue, warned by Fabra i Coats (where we held the festival at in 2018 and 2019) that the building of flats a few feet away from the venue might change things forever.  This is also a terrible news for Barcelona, a city already suffering an awful shortage of places for musical culture.

Make no mistake: there will be an AMFest 2020 and some great bands have already be secured. We can’t wait to show you the lineup, but first we need a few more weeks to finalize details and confirm the venue we’ll celebrate the festival at.

Our team would indeed love to stay at Fàbrica de Creació Fabra i Coats, a venue with the perfect size and unbeatable beauty for a festival like ours. At the moment, local institutions are working on a temporary solution to keep festivals safe at Fabra i Coats in 2020. Our petitions are pretty simple: we want to offer artists and audience the exact same experience in terms of sound, timings, logistics and production as in the past.

We really appreciate the patience and support you are showing us. And we want to send all our strength and empathy to other festivals in the same situation as ours, such as Say It Loud, Mira, BIS just to mention a few, which we are in daily contact with to try solve this problem affecting all of us.

We’ll be in touch soon!

Back a few months ago, The Notwist hadn’t stepped off-stage yet and we were already wanting more. The 2018 edition will go down in history as the big change, the total and absolute self-management, a brave booking and a great result, with more than 3.500 over the weekend and, last but not least: we are still alive!

AMFest is back with a ghost we thought dead, bringing back 12Twelve, one of the most important instrumental bands of our country, after a 10-year hiatus. They will perform entirely “Speritismo”, the legendary album recorded with Steve Albini back in 2003 in Chicago. AMFest was born from their ashes and we wouldn’t exist as a festival if it weren’t for them. 

In 2019 we’ll also bring Thursday back, with a warm-up show by the amazing Daughters (USA), whose music could easily be the soundtrack of the end of the world. If our venue Fabra i Coats doesn’t get blown away by them, from 11th to 13th of October we’ll also be able to enjoy the art-rock of Bo Ningen (Japan) and the great live show of The Album Leaf (USA), performing their legendary album “In a safe place”.

In a few weeks we’ll announce another bunch of bands for what will be, without any doubt, our best lineup ever.


We are the festival of people who care about music. We do it our way, with our prices and a unique audience who make AMFest an unforgettable festival.  We more awake than ever, opening our horizons in terms of styles, proposals and risk. An, of course, our incredible venue, the  Fàbrica de Creació Fabra i Coats, a location we dress up as we always wanted to, with our personality and tastes. Stay tuned, more news to come soon!
