12 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Miss Pilsen’s Rock for People festival This Weekend

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 a few days time.....

1) 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 August.

2) Unique spirit of the festival area
At the heart of Rock for People Europe will be Creative Zone DEPO2015. The renovated areas of the former transport depot are a design space with an inimitable genius location. The festival area is tailored to make use of the magical industrial spaces, including diverse crevices and corners. Visitors to the festival also gain free access to other Pilsen 2015 (European Capital of Culture 2015) events and exhibitions currently being held at DEPO2015.

3) The Beer
Pilsen is the city of beer. It is the city where the pilsner beer was invented. So where else should you enjoy it?

4) The comfort of the city festival
The festival takes place in the city of Pilsen. We take the advantage of everything that the urban festival offers. There are several options where to sleep during the festival. Besides the camp site and the college accommodation, and due to the proximity of the festival to the city, there are also many hostels and hotels in the area close to DEPO 2015.

5) Even the Second Tier Acts are Fantastic.
"We have adapted the dramaturgy to the European style, however we still keep our proven model. We don’t want to invite just well-known bands but also to widen the visual field of the public and get the fresh names from various genres too" explains Michal Thomes, the festival's co-founder.

6) The legendary Prague Cross Club
The legendary Cross Club, whose fame spreads not only beyond Prague, but beyond the borders of the Czech Republic, will change its headquarters for two days. Together with their entourage and DJs they will bring an awesome shield program to Pilsen. Raw space along with the clubs renowned residents DJs and other DJs will keep the party going hard until the early hours. Drum'n'bass, dubstep and electro will rattle the rafters, and the second area of the festival – Papírna - will be open until 4am.

7) Silent Disco
We love this thing. Everybody wears headphones, listening to the same DJ, and shakes a tail feather in a secluded grove. There’s something totally liberating about dancing to the beat in your head, though everyone probably looks like a bunch of xxx to an outside observer.

8) You’re Allowed to Stay for One or Two or Three Days. 
Some festivals require that you need to stay for all festival days but not this one. You can buy one or two day ticket or three day festival pass. Also, you can come and go as you want which is great.

9) Making New Friends. 
Of course, most of you will come with your friends but the festival is the perfect way to meet other awesome people who love great music, you can’t go wrong.

10) Price
You can buy a 3-DAY PASS to for Rock for Peopla Europe Pilsen for only 58 EUR.

11) Travel
You can easily and comfortably reach Pilsen – by bus, by train, by car. The main railway station is approximately 10 minutes far by walking. You can also take the advantage of the public transportation around the city.

12) Clean and Tidy Environs
Not only the sanitary facilities, but also camp sites and the festival area is being tidied up several times a day. The festival also distributes the special containers for waste sorting all around the area.
