Grace Jones among headliners as Colours of Ostrava concludes

The 17th edition of the Colours of Ostrava music festival came to a close on Saturday with performances by 1980s star Grace Jones, her Jamaican compatriot Ziggy Marley and US artist Seasick Steve, among others.

The organisers refuse to release attendance figures but it is believed that the event – which takes place in a former ironworks in Ostrava’s Vítkovice district – draws around 50,000 people every year.
