Czech Republic’s finest pop culture melting pot
Colours Of Ostrava, the Czech Republic’s multi award-winning summer festival, is about to turn the heat up again in 2014 when it returns to post-industrial background of Dolní Vítkovice – a site peppered with former blast furnaces, mines and ironworks.
Bringing together the biggest names in jazz, world music, rock, pop as well as the alternative scene, this four-day fiesta is a true melting pot for pop culture.
But that’s not all, there will also be an accompanying programme of theatre, workshops, discussion and film, along with plenty of activities for children and a wide selection of decent beers.
Don't forget your ticket will get you money off several tourist spots around the city as well.

The festival takes place at Dolní Vítkovice, a nearby post-industrial area, and shows among the former blast furnaces, mines and ironworks give the event a whole new dimension.
