We missed the news when it came out* a couple weeks before Christmas, but Gang of Youths has committed to play at the Colours of Ostrava music festival later this year.
The exact date of GOY’s performance isn’t known yet; organizers say they’ll reveal the schedule about a month before the festival. It runs for four days — July 17-20, in the city of Ostrava. For now, we’re listing the gig as July 17 in our Gang of Youths tour dates list; we’ll change it as needed when the schedule comes out.
Tickets for the festival are on sale now.
Colours of Ostrava has been happening every summer since 2002 and is the biggest festival in the Czech Republic. The venue looks interesting in that public domain photo above; it’s a former ironworks industrial site in the city.
