We participated in 3 editions of the beautiful Amphi Festival in Cologne, Germany. It is with great pleasure that I am introducing this festival to you and I hope that my photos and Viva Music’s reviews will convince you to visit Amphi soon. Here are the reviews by year: Amphi 2010 (day 1) review, Amphi 2010 (day 2) review, Amphi 2011 review, Amphi 2012 review and, as you already know by now, here are all my concert photos (for Viva Music) on Google+(Picasa).

Let the 2010 story begin with a shot of the sexy lead singer of Ashbury Heights:

Living for music

In 2009, I saw Depeche Mode live in Israel, Italy, Hungary, Spain (two shows). I also had tickets for Romania, Bulgaria and Portugal, but the shows were cancelled due to Dave Gahan’s illness. Still, the trip to Porto was good fun!

I also went to two major Gothic festivals in Germany:

VIVA MUSIC – Bucharest, Romania

by Viviana on April 20, 2010

in Music

Most of the music I personally like falls into one of the following categories: new wave/EBM/dark/electro/synthpop/futurepop/industrial/aggrotech/gothic or others, more or less known or more or less related. I have been a Depeche Mode fan for 23 years, and I am still devoted to the best band in the universe.

In 2008 I decided to share my passion for music with friends and fans of the music I like. My company, VIVA MUSIC (music promoter based in Bucharest, Romania) is my second business after WORDLAND (language and business training, started in 2001).

One of our goals is to stay true to the dark/electro/gothic scene, and never compromise. VIVA MUSIC team enjoy organizing every concert and always go the extra mile for the bands and their fans. VIVA MUSIC is not committed to making anyone rich, but to sharing the richness and beauty of an exclusive scene with friends, true fans, and  true music lovers. VIVA MUSIC is committed to representing the bands, collaborators and sponsors fairly and honestly. VIVA MUSIC is an honest and reliable tax payer, and we commit to supporting the economy of ROMANIA, the country we proudly represent.

I am very happy and I feel professionally accomplished looking back at 3 extremely successful music events VIVA MUSIC has organized so far: MELOTRON, the FIRST ROMANIAN DARKFEST, COVENANT.  We are planning on bringing only electro/dark/gothic acts to Romania.

Here are a few links to the music we promote:

In strict confidence: silver bullets; zauberschloss; manchmal; wintermoon; my despair

Covenant: bullet; final man; like tears in rain; call the ships to port

Melotron: liebe is notwehr; das hertz

Diary of dreams: the wedding; the curse; butterfly: dance!; menschfiend; son of a thief

And one: military fashion show; enjoy the unknown

Aesthetic perfection: the great depression; the siren; the ones; spit it out

Agonoize: for the sick and disturbed

VNV nation: Illusion

Right after getting off the Germanwings plane (2 hour flight) we jumped into a bus that took us to the Berlin Mitte (center). From there, the adventure of getting to the hotel was no adventure at all, as Germany’s transport is very well organized and logical and you simply cannot get lost. Still, for me even the clearest directions seem complicated! The fact that I managed pretty well with the transport in Berlin, was a first in my life!!! I managed to read maps and figure out quickly how to get to Warschauerstrasse, Alexander Platz or Friedrichstrasse… Well, for all of you reading this it may seem nothing, but for me it was another reason to feel proud!
