Karin Park to replace Holy Fawn at Amplifest 2022
Bad news from the Amplifest camp: the North American blackgaze quartet Holy Fawn will no longer be able to join this year’s edition of the festival by music lovers for music lovers. The good news is that a replacement act has already been found and is none other than Swedish-Norwegian singer Karin Park. Owner of an unmistakable voice, as spectral as it is imposing, Karin Park intertwines genres such as synthpop, electroclash and industrial, with a gothic aesthetic serving as the string that connects it all. The Swedish-Norwegian singer will make her long-awaited debut in Portugal and Amplifest to present her latest record, Church of Imagination, the sixth in a wonderful discography that includes collaborations with Lustmord and Årabrot, among others.
Amplifest 2022 takes place in two weekends – October 7th-9th and October 13th-15th -, at the Hard Club, in Porto. Three-day tickets purchased for the 2021 edition are only valid for the first weekend. Three-day tickets for the second weekend are still available at a regular price of 115 euros. Limited daily tickets for both weekends will be made available during the month of August. More information is readily available at the festival’s website here.
