The United Islands of Prague Festival 2008 has started!

The free festival United Islands of Prague (UIP) on three Prague islands and many clubs, hosting over 100 bands from 12 countries starts today. Today is the day of less known music groups, mostly local ones, who participate at the contest for a recording contract.

The official initiation is tomorrow, 20th June in the centre of contemporary art Meet Factory.

Except for Tata Boys, all the groups are playing for free. “This way, we can introduce groups to people, who wouldn’t come, if they had to pay” Said one of the organizers.

Along the music, there are also exotic kitchens and good accompanying programme. For complete information in English click here. For programme, just here
