The Southside Festival exists since 1999 and has been established as the southern counterpart of the Hurricane Festival in Scheeßel. Over the last years, the festival hosted internationally successful artists, well-known German acts and a big number of promising newcomers alike. Every year more than 130,000 visitors from all over Europe meet at Hurricane and Southside. A success based on the constant innovation of both festivals – for example through new forms of comfortable lodging or the innovation of the supply and food concept. Visitors of both festivals even have their own radio station at their disposal: Beck’s Camp FM broadcasts live from the daily festival madness and is also available online throughout the year.

Colours of Ostrava Festival to announce first 2019 headliners: The Cure and Florence + The Machine
Colours of Ostrava Festival, held from July 17–20, 2019 in the Czech Republic announces the first headliners: The Cure and Florence + The Machine. The festival will be held in the astounding industrial area of the former mining site of Dolní Vítkovice in Ostrava. Spread over two dozen unique outdoor and indoor stages, Colours of Ostrava 2019 will offer an unrivalled selection of contemporary and classic performers, from electro to world music, jazz, indie rock, and reggae. Festival-goers can look forward to over 350 events ranging from bands, DJs, films, open discussions, workshops, theatre, poetry, art installations and programmes for kids.
The diversity of the programme is one among many festival’s assets: the event is held on the site of the city’s former mines and ironworks, a European Cultural Heritage Site – a place unlike any other. Despite its industrial feel, the festival site boasts plenty of green space plus a range of quieter and shaded spaces ideal for lounging and recharging batteries. In terms of accommodation, easy options range from camping in the picturesque surroundings of the Ostrava Silesian Castle to higher-end accommodation options at Ostrava city centre hotels and flats. Transport is an easy matter too, Ostrava being easily accessible by train and car from airports in Prague and Krakow, the festival site then reachable by tram within the city centre.
Colours of Ostrava was founded in 2002 and ranked as one of the Top 10 music festivals in Europe in 2016 by The Guardian. In 2017, the festival was shortlisted for the European Festival Award in the category Best Major Festival. Colours of Ostrava also organises the free Festival v ulicích (Street Festival) in the centre of Ostrava, the Czech Music Crossroads, a music showcase conference. In 2015, Colours of Ostrava have launched the international Meltingpot discussion forum: a large-scale event spreading the ideas of outstanding international speakers, held as part of the festival.
Four-day tickets for 2019 are available on the festival website’s e-shop www.colours.cz and various ticket networks for 102 Euros, children and the disabled are offered major reductions. Last but not least, a ticket to Colours of Ostrava entitles festival-goers to a wide range of reductions for tourist attractions in the region.
And if you have time to spare, why not take a few extra days to discover the charm of the city itself? Formerly known as the Steel Heart of the Czech Republic, Ostrava is the third largest Czech city and has a unique atmosphere. Nestled between the Slovak and Polish borders with breath-taking views of the Beskydy Mountain range, Ostrava has it all: a rich and diverse history, a bustling cultural and social life, plus beautiful landscapes.
