Percival is a Polish band which plays music inspired by Vikings and Slavic traditions. Their repertoire consists of folk songs as well as their own tracks and brings the audience to early Middle Ages, to the world of our ancestors.

Above all, this is the band which was behind the recording of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt soundtrack.

Żywiołak comes from Poland and has a long musical history. They play songs of various genres, primarily in medieval-folk arrangement. Their texts are inspired by Slavic traditions. Folk elements combined with rougher tones make for a unique music mix.

Jeden kmen is a Czech project combining visual, theatrical and musical elements. You can be looking forward to dark music sung in orcish black speech. You're in for an unforgettable experience.

The Slovak band Strigoň began with playing cover versions of songs by Percival, but they have their own production today. They are greatly inspired by Slavic folk scene, Irish rhythms, medieval music and fantasy.

The band PerKelt plays so-called pagan speed folk, originally comes from Czechia, but now is an English band. Their main instruments are guitar, flute, drums and percussions. An integral part of their music is signing and speed dynamics of their songs. You can be looking forward not only to their concert on stage, but also to their performance in the inn every night!

A musical band of four members coming from the South Bohemian town of Tábor, playing historical music ranging from the 13th to the 16th century, i.e. Gothic and early Renaissance. They welcome you wherever there is a need for the rumbling drums, hooting horns, mighty tones of medieval bagpipes and pipes, squeaking hurdy-gurdy and vielle and the rhythmical attack of sistrum. The whole experience is enhanced by songs sung in original old, often long forgotten languages.

In their songs, the band Druga tells stories inspired by Czech legends and Slavic mythology. The name itself came from a free translation of the Old Slavonic word for “friendship”. The band uses this to express that music is about mutual sharing of human experiences and stories, whose essence does never changes, not even through the course of centuries, regardless of history or technological advances.
