The festival will be held in the astonishing industrial area of the former mining site of Dolní Vítkovice in Ostrava. Spread over two dozen unique outdoor and indoor stages, Colours of Ostrava 2020 will offer a unique selection of contemporary and classic performers, from electro to world music, jazz, indie rock, and reggae. Festival-goers can look forward to over 350 events ranging from bands, DJs, films, open discussions, workshops, theatre, poetry, art installations and programmes for kids.
The diversity of the programme is one among many festival’s assets: the event is held on the site of the city’s former mines and steelworks, a European Cultural Heritage Site – a place unlike any other. Despite its industrial feel, the festival site boasts plenty of green space plus a range of quieter and shaded spaces ideal for lounging and recharging batteries. In terms of accommodation, easy options range from camping in the picturesque surroundings of the Ostrava Silesian Castle to higher-end accommodation options at Ostrava city centre hotels and flats. Transport is an easy matter too, Ostrava being easily accessible by train and car from airports in Prague and Krakow, the festival site then reachable by bike or tram within the city centre.
