The 18th edition of a multi-genre festival “Colour Meeting”, which takes part in a unique location amongst medieval bulwarks and a pond.

The stars of this year are significant female figures of European world music and the Czech alternative scene. Portuguese singer Lina Rodrigues and Catalan electro producer Raül Refree (Lee Ranaldo, Rosalía etc.), transported traditional Portuguese fado into the 21st century in their project and album _Lina_Raül Refree_, also the Israeli electro-pop diva Liraz and Brìghde Chaimbeul, a player of traditional Hebridean smallpipes, who will be accompanied by the Scottish violinist Aidan O’Rourke. Iva Bittová will present her alternative-rock position together with the group Danube. Monika Načeva will also perform with the current project Wild Horses, in which she set to music poems by artists persecuted by the previous regime.

Exotic mix of genres and dance-hypnotic concerts, that is Cacao Mental, a psychedelic electro-cumbia trio from Italy and Peru. Decolonize Your Mind Society is a masked six – member group from Budapest, that gets its inspiration from traditional non-European and psychedelic music, their unique sound is also made by their unconventional tuning. Two friends with different musical roots and one musical instrument, Estonian zither, which they play in unison – Duo Ruut takes inspiration from Estonian folklore, that they process in different contexts.

From Czech and Slovak scene you can look forward to the fusion of folklore Horňácká Muzika Petra Mičky and nu-jazz of Lesní Zvěř in the project Hrubá Hudba. Alternative rock from Ústí is the Nauzea Orchestra. Fvck_Kvlt, an acclaimed Slovak rapper will appear with a special guest Arleta, a current reigning queen of experimental rap. Arleta also collaborates with musician and producer Lotus Wash aka David Herzig (Bert and friends, Never Sol), who will perform his first album Field Theory. Květy will return to Colour Meeting after fifteen years with their current album Květy Květy. Dirty house with an eighties feel, fluorescent techno or dark bubbling beats, HRTL always manages to surprise us with something new. Songs for tramps, freak country and autonomous art folk, that is city country by the Prague Dingo, Polish-Chinese composer, musician and producer Ai Fen will perform experimental pop with elements of scream, ambient and techno. Alen will introduce author’s piano compositions with a hint of folk and chanson and an excellent album Až se řeky vylijí z břehů.

Visitors can look forward to seeing theater performances by Divadlo Víti Marčíka, Holektiv, Studio Damúza, Sleď pod kožichem and My kluci, co spolu chodíme.
