Popular festival Colours of Ostrava returns
The annual international music festival Colours of Ostrava, one of the biggest events of its kind in Central Europe, kicks off in the North Moravian city on Wednesday night. Among the biggest highlights of this year’s edition is the US rock band Imagine Dragons or the nine Grammy awards winner Norah Jones.
“At the Colours of Ostrava, there is no band that would just fill in space. All of them are really unique and special. So whatever you choose, you cannot really go wrong. Whatever music scene you choose, you will get quality music and you may discover your new favourites.”
The biggest headliner on Thursday will be the US singer and songwriter Norah Jones, in what will be the first appearance of the nine-time Grammy Award winner in the Czech Republic. On Friday, the legendary Australian band Midnight Oil will take over the main stage.
Last year, Colours of Ostrava launched a new discussion forum called Melting Pot, offering a series of lectures and panel discussions. Antonín Parma is in charge of its programme:
Colours of Ostrava will culminate on Saturday night with a performance by the British band Jamiroquai.
