STRAKONICE / 23th – 26th August 2018


We invite you to the bagpipe festival!

Dear visitors,

The 22nd International Bagpipe Festival will be celebrated in Strakonice between August  25th and August 28th, 2016. Ensembles from the Czech Republic and from abroad have announced their participation. The bagpipes are a traditional instrument in the popular music, and the town of Strakonice with its surroundings has been a country of bagpipers since time immemorial. In this region, the bagpipes ranked among the most favoured and played instruments. The famous Czech playwright Tyl had been inspired by this fact to compose his known stage-play "The bagpiper of Strakonice" in the 19-th century.
