It is clear to us that music, or culture in general, connects and knows no age boundaries. CONFIRMED. And several times! That’s why we are developing special projects aimed at integration and promoting intergenerational dialogue.
The long-term project Seniors at Rock for People started in 2009. Thanks to it, the festival is regularly visited by senior men and women from Hradec Kralove. They have visited, for example, the concert of Karel Gott, Michal Malátný with the Kolín Big Band, Blue Effect, Pavel Bobek, Jarmila Šuláková or the folk musician Rodriguez. The festival atmosphere, the popular music and the friendly welcome from younger visitors usually attracts around 100 senior citizens.
In 2022, the project was carried out for the tenth time, with a visit to a concert by Ivan Mládek and the Banjo Band. The oldest participant was a beautiful 94 years old. This year, the senior expedition will come to enjoy the performance of Václav Neckář and the band Bacily.
We have been cooperating with the Hradec Králové City Council, specifically with the Department of Social Affairs and Healthcare, since the beginning. Thank you!
