About the festival
The city centre will have a giant stage from which a mix of various genres will sound throughout the festival. The streets will hold our little rooms for street musicians and many other musical productions in places you might not expect. There will also be a chill out zone for taking breaks because the concentration of music, delight, and playfulness in the city will be tremendous!
There will be both Czech and foreign performers. From Great Britain, there will be Jon Hopkins with his sometimes dreamy electronic music and the dance-circus group Motionhouse, which together with NoFit State will perform BLOCK. From the local scene, don’t miss out on site-specific opera in a spa by Hausopera or the pure musical performance of Cirk La Putyka, one of the top new circus acts anywhere.
The Brno Music Marathon is a key musical event for Brno as part of its being named a UNESCO Creative City of Music. One of the reasons the city joined this prestigious network was its extraordinarily varied offer of music, a fact this festival consistently expands on. Another important link is the connection with South Moravia, which just like Brno is exceptionally musical, and so the festival includes folk music. This fourth Brno Music Marathon concentrates all the multi-genre music performances into the very centre of the city.
