Dear friends of the ukulele festival.
Due to pandemic of COVID-19 and the constantly changing situation, we have had to make some last minute changes to our program. We were hoping that things would change in our favour, but not yet. It means that festival regulars Dead Mans Uke will not be able to come, nor will newcomers The Lava Birds and Raiz Lusa. Time and Jake from DMU and Raiz Lusa will be performing a live stream for us.
On the other hand, we have managed to secure Ukulayers from Germany to take the late slot on Saturday night, originally booked for last year, now they can come and you will not be disappointed. Other guests, who accepted our last-time invitation is fantastic Ukulollo from Italy and Cleo from Czech republic.
If you have already purchased workshops that are no longer available, we can either send you a refund or transfer you to a workshop of your choice.
Even though it is a difficult time to arrange an event such as these, we are sure that you will love the 9th Czech Ukulele Festival as you have loved the first 8 festivals.

We did manage to hold the festival in 2020, so we firmly believe that this year we will meet again at the Czech ukulele festival,, on a larger scale and with the the great variationwhich we usually achieve by inviting many performers from around the world. This year, we thank to the Flight Ukulelescompany, which supported us both financially and also with their unique ukuleles.
The 2021 festival will be concentrating on a colourful, cheerfull and accessible event, as everyone has hade a difficult and challenging 2020, we want to give everone something to smile about, to laugh and to dance while listening to great and varied music..
As regular festival goers know, we normally have a Friday Ukulele Day trip. This year we had planned to repeat a visit to Kutná Hora, however, we have decided, due to the Covid situation, to cancel the day trip this year, but 2022 will be back on.
On Saturday and Sunday the festival is held in the village of Únětice u Prahy, where there will be a full program of worskhops and concerts available for the attendees. Workshops will range from children´s and beginners to master classes of advanced techniques.
Since the first festival in August 2013, the Czech Ukulele festival has built a reputation of being the most inclusive and open festival of its kind in Europe, and arguably the most enjoyable in the world. We have striven to present performers and music ideas from as many parts of the world as possible and represent a wide range of age and social groups, with a special interest in promoting young players and encouraging children to play.
To create a fantastic carnival atmosphere the crircus style performers will headline on the Sunday night: Barada Street.
Originally the ukulele was developed from Portuguese instruments, and with the help of the portuguese cultural centre we welcome a performance by Raiz Lusa from Portugal, who plays the traditional Portuguese instruments.
Held in the wonderful Únětice brewery , will also make sure that all hygiene requirements are adhered to.
So come and enjoy the show.
