Eclectic mix on industrial grounds: Colours of Ostrava 2021
One collects stamps, the other Pokémon cards. But the organization of Colours of Ostrava takes it to the next level and collects public prizes. The festival is famous for its impressive location: the rusty industrial area of Dolní Vitkovice.
At Colours of Ostrava it is like walking through a fairy tale. The festival site is located on a deserted industrial estate, where the stages are literally hidden between coal mines and giant melting furnaces. It doesn’t get more photogenic than that! The line-up consists of a usual set of headliners and other popular international acts, but also jazz artists and classical music – something you rarely see at other festivals. The festival weekend is also filled with street theatre, inspirational speakers who really have something to say, pop-up cinemas and intimate performances in the cellars of the gigantic sheds. And all this for a typical Eastern European price.
