Rock for People.

Tips for your trips. Tourist information. Official websites.

Rock for People (RfP) is one of the largest open-air summer music festivals. The festival began in 1995 in the town of Český Brod, and in 2007 it was moved to an unused airport in Hradec Králové (map). The festival features Czech and international acts of various genres, most prominently alternative rock, pop rock, punk rock, and EDM, and has also featured various workshops and recreational activities.

At that time it did not look like one of the largest cultural events of the Czech Republic at all – only about 1000 people bought tickets to listen to 18 bands over 15 hours.

The city is in the centre of a very fertile region called the Golden Road on the confluence of Elbe and Orlice and contains many buildings of historical and architectural interest.

Hradec Králové is situated in East Bohemia about 100 kilometres from Prague. You can comfortably get there by car or train. Czech Railway has a special offer for festival visitors: a return ticket for the price of a single. The bus connection is also very good.

At Rock for People you can sleep in your own tent or caravan in a camp, or in a tent hotel. Prices differ according to the type of accommodation and capacity is limited, so don’t delay in booking a place to stay or buying your ticket.

Previous headliners include Queens of the Stone Age, Billy Talent, Scrillex, The Prodigy, Arctic Monkeys, The Kooks, Enter Shikari, The Offspring, Kaiser Chiefs, The Killers, Bloc Party, Placebo, Basement Jaxx, Massive Attack, Garbage, Cypress Hill, Manu Chao, The Hives, Fun Lovin Criminals, Levellers, Mike Patton, Chumbawamba, Gogol Bordello, Klaxons, Parov Stelar Band, Papa Roach, Hacktivist and many other acts.
