Rock for People Europe will be taking over Pilsen

Rock for People Pilsen from 3 July to 5 July 2015

Music legends and progressive names of the European contemporary scene, combined with the inimitable atmosphere of an industrial environment, will be on offer at Rock for People Europe in only few weeks time. Throw in the comfort of a city festival, and you’ve got the idea.

Headlining the Pilsen edition, which will be held from 3 July to 5 July, are the legendary British band, Motörhead. The rock pioneers, led by founding member Ian "Lemmy" Kilmistrem, have played almost four thousand concerts around the world during the last four decades, and on the 4th of July the industrial areas of the former transport depot will resound to their sounds. We also expect that visitors will be treated, for the first time, to some songs from their new album which is due for release in the autumn. Rock for People Europe will be held as part of the celebrations for Pilsen – European City of Culture 2015.

In the Czech Republic, they are not considered new, or just another representative of the British music scene. Modestep are a very popular bunch here, skillfully combining rock with dubstep and drum'n'bass. From neighbouring Austria come the main pioneers of electroswing, Parov Stelar, who a few days ago released a new album called The Demon Diaries. Among other attractions confirmed at the festival are the ageless Guano Apes from Germany, guitarist and songwriter Fink, hitmakers The Ting Tings and enfant terrible from the UK, musician and singer Peter Doherty.

At the heart of Rock for People Europe be Creative Zone DEPO2015. The renovated areas of the former transport depot are a design space with an inimitable genius location. Visitors will be able to choose from a varied menu of European music containing nearly 70 choices, which will be served to them on one giant outdoor stage and another two indoor stages. There will be a rich support program including outdoor activities, numerous exhibitions, workshops and even a coffee shop cinema. Visitors to the festival also gain free access to other Pilsen 2015 events and exhibitions currently being held at DEPO2015.

Rock for People regularly tries to imagine what the home crowd expects, and brings artists whose careers are now more or less on an upward spiral. "We have adapted the dramaturgy to the European style, but still we keep our proven model. We don’t only want to invite well known bands, but to widen the visual field of the public and get some fresh names from various genres" explains Michal Thomes, the festival's co-founder. Indie rock lovers will be delighted with, for example, the winners of the European Border Breakers Awards for best new European music act of 2013, the Finnish group, French Films. Also of interest is the Dutch discovery, De Staat, the four Spanish maniacs, GoMad! & Monster who combine acoustic rock and electronic elements with demonic energy and a vibrant live show, or a fresh discovery, JoyCut, from Italy.
