FIRE & MUSIC
PRAGUE / CZECH REPUBLIC
20.8 - 23.8. 2020
International festival of new circus - fire dancing, juggling, acrobatics, contemporary dance, LED shows. 3 performance stages of circus & live music followed by parties each night featuring live bands & DJ’s.
Roztoč fest is an all weekend event where world renowned artists and the audience comes together in celebration to inspire & expose the arts involved. Teachers are happy to create new artists from the interested audience. This is not an event where you sit and watch. We'll get you movin!
All events and workshops are suitable for participants of any ages.
We go together deep into the disciplines & find the ways to involve everyone. Movement and desire are the only needs to help anyone to learn a few tricks and get the most from such a weekend. There is a special program for kids only as well. Apart from that we will have our special “Roztoc agents” who will teach anyone individually with any prop (all the juggling props will be available to borrowed)

🔊TYGROO (CZ) Brass-house / Funk / Drumnbrass / Balkan / Hiphop
"The band of Tygroo combines some traditional music genres like klezmer and balkan music with some modern ones, like funk, hiphop,disco, dubstep and other electronic music genres. All that spiced up with a huuge portion of invention and creativity. Playing only drums and winds (and sometimes accordion) this band sounds very unusual, fresh, full of colours and fire, coming sometimes from Odessa or the Guča festival, sometimes from New Orleans or the NY city subway. Come to listen and (most of all) dance to some Klezmer-Funk, Balkan-Jungle, Jazz-Dubstep, Brasshouse, Cave Music, Trashdisco and who knows what else!"

LAST YEAR LOCATION - KOUPALIŠTĚ DŽBÁN | DIVOKÁ ŠÁRKA
Koupaliště Džbán is probably the most beautiful lake in Prague, with clean water, surrounded by the natural reservation of Divoka Sarka. At the same time it is only 10min by walk to the metro, only 30min to the city centre.
Did you hear about the Phoenix Fire Convention?
PFC takes place on 29. Aug - 1. Sept, which is a week after Roztoc at Hildburghausen, Germany! This is probably the biggest fire spinning gathering in Europe. Join the community at this event too! We are a big lovers of it and it also inspires us to do Roztoc fest.
There will be many interesting workshops, performances and artists. If you like Roztoc fest you will certainly like this too. Check out the official website! phoenix-convention.de/en/
PLEASE, help us so we can keep making this event even more awesome.
Organising this festival doesn't only consume ton of time, but also ton of money. Last year we only got 50% back of what we invested in it but our enthusiasm didn't get any smaller this year. The ticket is as cheap as possible, so everyone can participate - we don't want those less wealthy to stay home because of finances. So we are asking YOU, who can afford more than 20€ for such an event. to contribute something to us, so we can keep the entry low for ever and still make enough to pay all the costs.
