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!
