Friends of Ostrava Days

Friends of Ostrava Days is an exclusive association of selected personalities who support independent musical activities existing outside of institutionalized organizations, exemplified by the biennial Institute and Festival Ostrava Days. Being on the outside of the conventional music world offers lively and daring experiences. It means taking chances, sometimes controversial and uncompromising.
