Conchita Wurst to headline Prague Pride 2015
PRAGUEPRIDE.CZ REPORTS – Austrian singer Conchita Wurst, winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, will be the main star of the Prague Pride 2015 Opening Concert. The event will officially open the Pride Village on Strelecky island in the center of Prague on Monday 10 August.
Aneta Langerova who acquired four Angel music awards last April will be another star of the opening concert. She will perform a selection of songs from her latest album “Na Radosti”. Both female singers will be supported by Jaro Smejkal, a young openly gay pop singer.
At 9 p. m., a the Gloriet in the US embassy garden on the slope of Petrin hill will be traditionally lighted in rainbow colors for the Pride week. You think the Gloriet is not visible from Strelecky island? Well, no worries, we’ll take care of it!
The festival opening will be really spectacular thanks to the music stars. We believe that through the concert, everyone will finally understand that Prague Pride is not just the Saturday parade but a whole week of cultural, social, sport and spiritual activities. Programme 2015 comprises of over 120 events.

A Prague Pride crowdfunding campaign has been running at Startovac.cz. The aim is to collect money for organization of the Pride Village including programme and decorations. The great opening obviously requires a great budget. We will appreciate if you support the island and do not let us drown…
