Budweiser Budvar’s invitation to the Budvar Fest
A various choice of rock music will be provided for České Budějovice’s inhabitants and visitors by the Budvar Fest musical festival. Its second year takes place on Saturday 17th May on the “Sokolský ostrov“ in České Budějovice from 12.30 pm. Last year’s Budvar Fest was visited by approximately 1500 onlookers.
“Organising an individual musical festival outside the brewery’s premises proved to be successful last year. People are accommodated with the opportunity to liven up their weekend programme directly in the centre of the town. Additionally, it will be a good rehearsal for the traditional Budvar Day, which this year takes place on 13th September and will offer the onlookers an even more voluminous programme on two musical platforms, including the performance of Wanastowi Vjecy, No Name and others,” says Budweiser Budvar’s promotional events manager Petr Klein.
During the Budvar Fest, rock music performances by Czech bands can be heard. The programme will be opened by the South Bohemian group Sistrum (from 12.30 pm), followed by Rozkrock (from 2 pm) and Noise Boutique (from 3.30 pm). The evening part will see Medvěd 009 (from 5 pm), AC/DC Revival (from 7 pm) and Kiss Revival (from 9 pm). The programme will be supplemented by prize competitions for spectators. In case of poor weather as well as to make visitors more comfortable, a beer tent with 500 sitting places will be made available. The visitors will be provided with the sale of both drawn and bottled beer (including drawn alcohol-free beer), along with soft drinks and other refreshments. The entrance is free of charge.
