10. 8., 8 p.m.
The Adicts (UK)
This group is incredible, mainly for the fact that from their formation in 1976 they have continued to play with their original line-up. They began life as Afterbirth & the Pinz, then were renamed inspired by the image from the Kubrick film Clockwork Orange and began to tour the world’s stages already as The Adicts. Catchy melodies, easily digestible lyrics and a perfect cabaret-like show creating a wonderful atmosphere in their unique concerts. Last year their performance got the festival Mighty Sounds dancing and now they are returning with a new album And it was so! to Czech stages.
The Fialky (CZ)
This Prague punk rock group, formed in 2000, was inspired by bands like The Ramones, The Buzzcocks, etc. The group has been on a constant carousel of concerts on the absolutely clear tracks of Punk 77. Despite all the obstacles they have honed their performances to perfection.
A Brno punk rock group that has been active since 2014. Full of energy, Czech lyrics and choruses that you will be signing for a long time. So far they have produced one full length album and an EP. The boys are playing better and better, so make sure you do not miss it!
11. 8., 6 p.m.
Špilberk Castle Terrace
As part of the Brno Music Marathon you can also sample concert by the cult hip-hop group Chaozz. Kato, Ba2s, Rusty and Fugaz are once again together on one stage and playing their unique hits full of vigour. Also appearing on the same evening will be the Brno rap scene legends Tafrob
11. 8., 8 p.m.
PHYSICAL GRAFFITI (NL)
The group PHYSICAL GRAFFITI has for more than twenty years been active as a tribute to one of the world’s most famous rock groups, Led Zeppelin. They are based in the Netherlands and in the last ten years they have built up a great reputation on the club scene. Their almost two-and-a-half-hour-long concert made up of the most famous pieces has been performed by Physical Graffiti in hundreds of concerts in European cities such as Berlin, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Amsterdam and many more. They have even been to Moscow with their “swansong”.
12. 8., 6 p.m.
Dog eat Dog (US)
Dog Eat Dog is without doubt one of the most successful crossover groups of all, founded in 1990 and one of the first to combine hard rock with hip hop. In 1993 they brought out the mini LP Warrant and then in 1994 their first major and highly successful album All Boro Kings, which exploded onto the world musical scene. Hard guitars in combination with hip-hop rhythms, rap and the sound of the saxophone has enchanted everyone. In 1996 they released Play Games, which was produced by stars such as the Butcher Brothers (Cypress Hill and The Fugees). This was followed by more successful recordings. In the past they have cooperated on many projects also with Czech groups, for example with Loco in recording the song Who’s the King. You can expect a cross-section of all their works up to the most recent and a large helping of the energy and wonderful atmosphere that make performances by Dog Eat Dog famous as among the best of all live acts.
Evergreen Terrace (US)
This five-member group from Florida got together in 1999, a year later bringing out their debut disc “Losing All Hope Is Freedom”, which is an interesting thought among other things. This was followed by the album “Burned Alive by Time” and after that an album of covers of hits, including pieces by groups like U2, Smashing Pumpkins and Tears For Fears. The bottom line is that there are six discs and five singles and compilations. The latest disc, called “Dead Horses”, came out in 2013
This punk band from Bystřice nad Perštejnem does not pull its punches and plays punk rock that their musical colleagues can only dream off. They got together in 2009, but began playing in their current form a few years later. First to be released was the album Booze and Fights and last year they brought out the disc Anarkids!
