Colours of Ostrava

Finally made it to Colours of Ostrava festival! The best line up of the best artists I was eager to see close up for ages! From UNKLE, to Jamiroquai to Justice to Norah Jones to Imagine Dragons and Moderat! Goodness what a line up! Will never forget this festival.

Colours of Ostrava, or simply Colours, is a multi-genre festival, the biggest international music festival in the Czech Republic and one of the biggest music events in Central Europe, held every summer since 2002 in Ostrava, the third biggest city in the country. This year it was jam packed with over 65000 tickets sold. In addition there was a Bolt Tower, the highest geographical point in Ostrava and its 78 meters can be clearly seen from the distance. It was built on top of blast furnace 1 at the former mining complex of Lower Vítkovice. The signature on the wall is that of the person who blessed this unique structure. In 2015 Jamaican record holder, world champion and Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt, who has visited Ostrava several times for the local track meet Golden Spike, did the honors.
