Colours of Ostrava is an international, multi-genre music festival organised annually in Ostrava since 2002. In 2012, the festival was moved to the entrancing surroundings of Dolní Vítkovice – an area that used to belong to metallurgical works, mines and ironworks. The last, 15th year, offered over 350 programme items on 20 open and covered stages – concerts, discussions, theatre performances, films, workshops as well as art activities.
Colours of Ostrava received the Anděl Award for Music Event of 2005 and 2006. At the same time, it was awarded as the best music event of 2004, 2005 and 2006 by the ALMA Survey in the Concert/Festival of the Year category.
In 2015, the festival made it to the Best Major Festivals shortlist within the European Festival Awards and received the award of Czech Superbrands 2015. In 2016, the Guardian rated the festival as one of the 10 best festivals in Europe.
Colours of Ostrava also organises the free Festival v ulicích (Street Festival) in the centre of Ostrava, the Czech Music Crossroads, a music showcase conference, and the international Meltingpot discussion forum took place at the festival for the first time in 2015.
