This harsh, industrial environment, where you can still almost feel the heat of the blast furnaces and rough labour, is the perfect backdrop for the festival whose very name already sets it apart from the rusty old production plants: the Colours of Ostrava. This yearly event, which regularly draws tens of thousands of people, takes place in Dolní oblast Vítkovice
The audience is amazing and the shows are star-studded, featuring artists like Alanis Morrissette, Bobby McFerrin, Iggy Pop, and many other international big-name bands. The Colours of Ostrava International Music Festival has become legendary. It is thanks to this amazing event that countless visitors from around the country and abroad are discovering, for the first time, that Ostrava is a great city
and definitely worth a visit.
Each year, the historical heart of Dolní oblast Vítkovice resounds with the music of icons from European and worldwide music scenes. The multi-genre event boasts a full programme and record-breaking attendance every year. The days-long summer festival is also accompanied by workshops, theatre performances, discussion sessions and film screenings. Anyone can, no doubt, find their niche at this colourful event.
