The Multi-genre festival Vaňkovka Fest this year offers concerts, an open-air cinema and stand-up performances. The month-long festival at the Galerie Vaňkovka in Brno will play host to Aneta Langerová, Dan Bárta, Lukáš Pavlásek, Ben Cristovao, Michal Pavlíček & Trio and many more.
Right at the start of the festival, that is today 26 June from 8.30 p.m. the stage in the spaces next to Galerie Vaňkovka will belong to Dan Bárta and the group Alice. In the following days there will be a performance from Ben Cristovao, presenting several novelties from his recently released album. In the remainder of June visitors will have a chance to hear Naty Hrychová or The Glass Onion – The Beatles revival. A new feature of this year’s Vaňkovka Fest will be an expanded programme for the open-air cinema. Screenings begin always at 7.30 p.m. and all the films will have one thing in common – Bolek Polívka plays in them. Visitors can look forward to Pelíšky (Cosy Dens), Něžný barbar (The Gentle Barbarian), Hezké chvilky bez záruky (Pleasant Moments) and others. There will also be something for theatre lovers as they can look forward to the Divadlo Prkno with the play Mezi nebem a zemí (Conversations with God) and the popular Brno improvisation show Komediomat.
One of the most eagerly anticipated concerts of the festival will take place about midway through, on 17 July. Aneta Langerová with her band will be coming to Brno. Like last year an essential part of Vaňkovka Fest will be stand-up performances. This time we will have Lukáš Pavlásek, Iva Pazderková and Adéla Elbel. This exhibition will also be a birthday celebration.
Throughout July there will be yoga classes outdoors, as well as the project of thematic nights. This year, visitors can look forward to an acoustic night that will feature many talented musicians such as the cellist Pavel Čadek and the singer/songwriter Adéla Václavová, and there will also be Documentary Night and an evening on the topic of crossovers.
Entry to all events that are part of the programme of Vaňkovka Festu is free.
