The famous Lords of Rožmberk (Rosenberg) who once owned the dominion are back! The spirit of the Renaissance age is brought back to life for three days with the hubbub of jousts, craft fairs, medieval music, street plays, and fencing duels to culminate with the highlight of the festival – a spectacular procession in historical costumes featuring knights on horseback and many notables linked with the history of the town. No matter what the age or the expectations of the visitors are, all will certainly enjoy themselves.



This Year’s Theme


..

This year we will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the renewed tradition of Five-petalled Rose Celebrations that started in 1990. An event from 1555 when William of Rosenberg joined the two previously independent settlements – Latrán and Old Town – will become the key theme of this year’s Celebrations.




Performers in the historical and accompanying schedule of events


..

The Five-petalled Rose Celebrations schedule of events will see nearly 70 ensembles giving a total of 170 performances on 10 different stages in the town centre. The main historical costumed procession will include 750 costumed persons.

Their music echoes medieval spirituality, a tavern dance as well as an oriental sensuality and a rock drive of the modern world. Krless interpret medieval music in a medieval crossover style. Do not expect a living history style reconstruction or any attempts of a “truly medieval” interpretation. Instead Krless liberally transform medieval music with the energy expected by the modern audience. They often mix musical styles and medieval music Krless-style is a mixture of original ancient music, present-time folk, folklore, blues, rock as well as Jewish and Arabic music.

Their style is to remake medieval songs but using the instruments of that period: drums, pipes, shawms, cister, hurdy gurdy and a fiddle. The band has been performing with current band members since 2008. Since then they have played on many locations both at home and abroad, at castles and chateaus, during fairs and on festive occasions. They have performed as a front runner for Blackmore’s Night during their concerts for several seasons.

8.45 – 10 pm Řemdih – this originally rock band has now a repertoire comprising of medieval music in all its forms. There are drinking songs, love sings, spiritual multi-vocal chants and courtly dances. Fiery instrumental pieces are put in contrast with wistful multi-vocal songs sung a capella.

10.30 pm – 12 am BraAgas – their genre is best expressed by the popular term “world music”. The band´s repertoire comprises of folk songs from across Europe – Spain, Occitania, Galicia, Sephardic songs, songs from Scandinavia and the Balkans. BraAgas are unique in their elaborate vocals, an interesting musical arrangement and vivacious rhythms. Among their greatest achievements is the victory in the 5th year of the Colours Talent Award. They are also holders of two “Angel” awards for the best world music album of the year in 2009 for their “Tapas” album and in 2014 for the album “Yallah”.
