Prague turns into a city of music, theater, and food every summer. We have handpicked a few festivals you cannot miss out on in the next few months.
Prague Is Alive With Music is one of the biggest street festivals in Prague. This event shows that culture and music belong in the streets. Last year’s edition attracted a large number of visitors and this year, the organizers want to build on that and create even more busking spots.
Busking refers to any street performance, whether it is a musical, improvisational, or theatrical production. The Prague Is Alive With Music Festival is organized by Nerudný fest, which also organizes other events such as Mladí tuní jazz and Student Fest.
Anyone who wants to showcase their art on the streets can join the festival. Just fill in the questionnaire on the website: prahazijehudbou.cz. You can experience street art on the 23rd and 24th of June in many places in Prague. Stages are in Stalin, Můstek, and Namesti Republiky.
Respect Festival is not only a traditional music festival, but also a message of tolerance towards different cultures, peoples, and traditions. The event tries to achieve connection with people from all over the world.
One of the main stars of the festival is the African artist Adédèjì. The Dur-Dur Band from Somalia will perform and from India, Rngamatir Baul performs as do the Dutch trio, Meral Polat Trio. The festival also includes various programmes for children and art installations.
The performances will take place on Rohan Island on the 17th and 18th of June. Two-day admission will cost 750 crowns.
The Prague Rocks Festival continues on June 21st with more well-known artists from music mainstream. Gwen Stefani and Maroon 5 will be joined by Rag’n’Bone Man, who unfortunately canceled his appearance in Prague last year due to the ongoing COVID epidemic.
