Practical Information


The festival is postponed to 2021 



Dear friends and fans of the festival Ostrava v plamenech,

in recent weeks and days we have witnessed an extremely difficult period unparalleled in history. Until recently, few of us would have thought that we would get into the current situation.

It's not easy to say that, but what most of us expected is just happening. The 7th year of Ostrava v plamenech will not take place.

Unfortunately, the measures associated with the coronavirus crisis will not allow us to organize the festival.

We are very dissapointed about that and you can probably imagine the feeling of futility after almost a year of intensive work which we dedicated to the festival.

The good news is that we are not giving up and working intensively on the next year's edition of the festival which will take place in the middle of next summer, as we are used to.

We are just negotiating about Saturday dates July 31 or August 7, 2021. Which of the above 2 dates it gonna be, will be known in the coming weeks. We will inform you immediately.

At the moment, all indications are that we will be able to maintain the entire line-up and move it to the next year.

Of course, this is not an easy task, because most bands already had other plans for next year but everything is coming to a successful end.

Please keep your tickets for this year and keep them in a safe place. They remain valid for the next year.

Many of you are asking how you could support us for which we thank you very much and we appreciate your support.

You can best support us by continuing to buy tickets for OVP 2021.

We can promise you that if there are more of you than we expect, we will invest all the extra income in the development of the festival, so that you enjoy it even more with us and feel even better with us.

Stay with us and be healthy.

All the best!

Petr Šiška and Patrik Kohut, the festival promoters
