*16.000 visitors celebrating at the Tanzbrunnen Cologne *On Sunday evening the VII. Amphi Festival 2011 ended with exciting shows by Nitzer Ebb, Covenant and Subway to Sally. Sold out for the third time since 2008 again 16.000 visitors from all over the world celebrated with more than 40 artists on three stages.
Already several thousand fans gathered in front of the main stage to settle one of the most impressive kick offs in Amphi history, dancing to the raving beats of [X]-RX . While Saturday´s weather presented itself from a shifty side, the talks, readings and acoustic concerts at the Theater am Tanzbrunnen as well as the new Amphi Festival Café turned out to be a perfect addition to the overall experience. Defying the falling rain, DEINE LAKAIEN filled the main stage with avantgardistic electro sounds, while HOCICO conquered the Staatenhaus with piercing synths and harsh electro beats.
On Sunday the wheathergod returned early from his weekend vacation and provided all Amphi Fans with a sunny second festival day, including spectacular show by Agonoize, Feindflug, Nitzer Ebb, Covenant and Subway To Sally, pushing the Amphi Festival 2011 to its emotional climax!
