AMFest, the Barcelona based festival with a focus on post-rock, math-rock, prog, post-metal and experimental music, have completed their line-up for 2022. Headlined by post-rock icons Godspeed You! Black Emperor, the 4 day festival takes place at La Farga de l’Hospitalet, on the outskirts of the stunning city of Barcelona, Spain from 6th - 9th October.

They are joined by some of the most exciting and important artists from these scenes including post-metal pioneers Cult of Luna, dark synth-wave leaders Carpenter Brut, multi-instrumentalist Lingua Ignota, experimental metal band Deafheaven, U.S doom outfit Pallbearer, avant-rockers TWDY, composer Anna von Hausswolf and psychedelic black metallers Oranssi Pazuzu.

Joining them are Caspian, Elder, Tricot, Meat Puppets, GGGOLDDD, A.A Williams, Svalbard, Aiming For Enrike, Za! Vs 13 Year Cicada, Midwife, Slow Crush, Irist, Birds In Row, Foxtails, Ikarie, Lili Refrain, Maud the Moth, Nara Is Neus and Arima.

AMFest began life as Aloud Music Festival back in 2013 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Barcelona-based label Aloud Music. Originally intended as a one-off event, the success led to the organisers doing it all over again in 2014. From 2015 the festival changed it’s name and continued as AMFest until the pandemic put things on ice. Now in 2022 the festival is finally able to return with its strongest line-up today. The organisers comment,

"We have been working at this edition for 3 years now. It was supposed to be the most ambitious edition of AMFest already in 2020 and the pandemic just increased our desire to make this AMFest the greatest edition ever and something we will never forget.

The lineup is pretty close to what we would define as “a dream come true”. If somebody told us we would have some of these names with us when we started in 2013 we would have laughed, or cried. It will be an honor to work with La Farga de l'Hospitalet for the first time and we are looking forward to see many fans from the UK and Ireland coming over and having a wonderful weekend in sunny Barcelona in October”
