Freezefest (EN)

FREEZE FEST aneb KULTURA JINAK 2011 (FREEZE FEST or else CULTURE DIFFERENTLY) is a third volume of a free art festival, which has a completely unique concept in the Czech Republic. The festival will take place on 16. - 18. 9. 2011 and will be in the first place focused on alternative branches of art, non professional art scene, DIY culture and, of course, on a electronic and live music with many coherent projects, such as DJ School or live Machine Jam. Freedom to create will be offered to all for just a basic amount of entry, which will, hopefully, cover all the materials, energy and other production costs. The project is aimed on wide public, not forgetting students of art schools, professional as well as talented beginning artists, with stress on originality and exclusion of copying current trends.

Pillars of the festival:

  • Erasing the borders between an artist and a visitor.
  • Space for self-fulfillment for everyone.
  • Diversity, which arises thanks to meeting and diffusing of many artistic directions.
  • The festival without fences, admission, in a free atmosphere.

The festival will take a place again in the outstanding area of former military area Milovice, related to the dismal history of our Republic. We believe, that thanks to the Freeze festival we can revitalize and imprint the human face to this area. The aim of the Freeze festival is to provide an environment and opportunities to everyone, who is interested to create this event and by that present him/herself as well or create his/her artworks at the place during the festival. People should get here a unique chance to their own self-realisation. It will be an event, where people meet at one time in one place and will show their projects to the others, to the public. They will also inspire themselves and maybe even establish closer cooperation among themselves. Seeing that the last two years volumes of the Freeze fest was managed according to our ideas and the feedback of participants far surpassed all expectations, we consider our effort and determination as successful and we boldly dare to create a new tradition of events valuable for development of non-professional culture.

The volume three of Freeze Fest or else Culture Differently 2010 is still in progress of preparations. So if anyone of you wants to participate as a performer, volunteer or have beneficial ideas do not hesitate to contact us and become a part of us! Each area has been divided in contacts.
