Paramore, My Chemical Romance and Bullet for My Valentine to perform at Rock For People

The Rock For People team have been in action since 1995 – a mere two years since the county received its independence, leaving behind Czechoslovakia and returning to its roots as the Czech Republic – and throughout this period they’ve curated and developed each year’s event to surpass it’s predecessor, leading the festival to blossom at a similar rate to the Czech economy. And, with 30,000 attendees expected this year the event has now become one of the biggest festivals in Central Europe.

This year’s line-up pulls no punches with the bookings. Expect undiluted rock on the main stage with headliners Paramore, My Chemical Romance, Bullet for My Valentine and Pendulum staking Rock for People’s claim to the title of the Czech Republic’s most progressive festival line up. Throughout the event there’s scope for an education in the Czech music scene and the opportunity to enjoy slightly more diverse sounds from acts such as Bright Eyes, The Streets, White Lies, Digitalism, the Qemists, Kele and the Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra.

Housed on an old Soviet airfield in the city of Hradec Králové, 100 Km east of Prague, the festival site boasts three main arenas; comprised of two generous outdoor stages and one housed in a former aircraft hangar. With fields and lakes complimented by the convenient amenities of banks, supermarkets and, should you require it, hotels the location of RfP in the city of Hradec Králové seems an ideal location to welcome in attendees from across the continent.

Travel to the event is easy; Prague airport boasts great connections across Europe and from there it’s just a short train journey to Hradec Králové, with festival busses ready to ferry the masses to the festival site. If you’re travelling to the event from outside the Czech Republic and the idea of transporting all your camping goods just doesn’t appeal then help is at hand as you can book a fully prepared tent from Kempingski for two people costing only 40 Euros.

Tickets for Rock For People cost just £57.50 for a full 4 day pass and are available from www.eventim.co.uk camping costs just 200 CZK per person and with beers starting at around £1 a pint Rock for People not only promises to deliver a good time but could also be the best financial decision you made this year!

Rock For People takes place from July 2nd – July 5th 2011, full details of the line-up can be found on their website at www.rockforpeople.cz
