Tři sestry (Three sisters) – the main star of OKD Mining celebrations in Karviná

KARVINÁ (18th August 2015) – A Czech music legend Tři sestry stages at the occasion of 30 years of its existence “A year of celebrations” and is on tour around the Czech Republic and Slovakia and will be the main star of OKD Mining celebrations. This year, they will take place on Saturday, 12th September in Božena Němcová park. Day of miners will be held on the same day, in Staříč.

„I firmly believe that the main star that will come to Karviná this year is close to majority of our employees as well as inhabitants of the mining region because of its original music and lyrics. Originally a punk band has gradually stood astride into other genres which make its position irreplaceable on the Czech music scene. Let´s hope that weather will be kind and in Karviná and Staříč we will welcome thousands of music and fun fans and for those who find mining traditions important in this region. Everyone should be able to find something interesting from the wide programme offer,” says Lenka Flámová from OKD on behalf of organizers.

Apart from Tři sestry, a popular band Ahard will perform in Karviná in the mining region – either on their own or with a singer Tanja. Nebe, a band from Havířov nominated in several shows in the category “Revelation of the year” will perform or the “Revelation of the year” in a public survey Český Slavík 2014”, a singer Elis. Vaťák – a revival band of Kabát will introduce itself.

Day of miners will be held on the same day like the event in Karviná at the grounds of the football field in Staříč and will have primarily a rock bands.

Both events will traditionally offer an ample program for children. In Karviná, part of the programme gets back to a renovated amphitheatre where OKD Foundation stage will be hosting majorettes, a circus; folk assemble, dancing formation or Permoník, popular in the region.

Reverent ceremonies at both events will commemorate the memory those who deceased when working underground.
