Radegast Day Jubilee Presents Star Bands (Translation)

1 June 2012

May 31, 2012, Nošovice  - The 10th anniversary of The Radegast Day will bring an exceptional music experience. The stars of the Czech and Slovak music scene will come to Nošovice on Saturday, September 15. Tens of prestigious awards were put together, among them Angel, Czech Nightingale, Aurel, and Slovak Grammy. In the shadow of the Beskydy mountains, Chinaski, No Name, Mandrage, Charlie Straight, Wohnout, and many other bands will play. The famous stars will be joined by VSPH, the winner of Radegast Hotbed, the Moravian amateur band contest. The visitors will enjoy unfiltered lager beer Radegast.

"To mark the 10th anniversary of the Radegast Day, we were able to secure reputable bands. The awards that they've collected during their career speak for themselves; four bands playing at the Radegast Day event won the first places in Angel Awards. The big attraction is surely the band Mandrage, this year's winner of Band of the Year category. Chinaski has two trophies for a victory in the same category, plus victory in the Czech Nightingale contest. Slovak band No Name has also won many awards. This is a great invitation for all music fans and rightly-bitter beer lovers," Michal Kučera, Radegast Brand Specialist said. 

The exact schedule is still in progress. By now we know that one of the star bands, No Name, will start the show in the early afternoon. The evening program will be concluded by Chinaski.

Unfiltered lager will be on taps, and drivers will have a chance to enjoy non-alcoholic Birell. Visitors will have a chance to visit the brewery and the whole visitors tour. An additional program is being prepared and will be announced.
