Se slzou v oku vám musíme oznámit, že jsme nuceni Urban Rock zrušit. Někdy zkrátka dobré úmysly nestačí a překážek je tolik, že již není možné pokračovat. A přesně do tohoto bodu jsme se dostali i my. Důvodem je nenaplnění některých dohod a odpadnutí výrazného partnera, jehož finanční plnění mělo pro konání akce zásadní význam. Ačkoli jsme hledali všemožná řešení, žádné z nich se neukázalo jako realizovatelné. Celá situace je velmi nešťastná, jelikož naší hlavní snahou bylo přivést do Brna něco speciálního s mezinárodním přesahem. Výjimečný projekt, který zde nemá obdoby. Nicméně v tuto chvíli jsou všechny varianty, jak Urban Rock uspořádat, vyčerpané. Věřte, že jsme dělali vše, co bylo v našich silách, aby tato nešťastná situace nenastala. Děkujeme za vaši podporu a doufáme, že se v budoucnu setkáme na jiných akcích.
Peníze za již zakoupené vstupenky vám budou vráceny stejným způsobem, jakým jste je zakoupili.
Rádi bychom poděkovali všem za podporu a spolupráci.
Tým Urban Rock
we are very sorry to announce that the Urban Rock festival is being cancelled. Good intentions are not always enough, the obstacles we must face at this moment are beyond our ability to overcome them. One of the reasons for the cancellation is the suspension of cooperation with our main business associate resulting in radical cut in financial resources which were crucial to the festival. We have tried to find any other solution, however, none of them turned out to be possible. The entire situation is very sorrowful, our main goal was to introduce Brno to the international festival scene and create something truly unique and special. At this moment, all the possibilities to resurrect Urban Rock festival have been exhausted. Please believe that we have done our maximum to prevent this from happening. Thank you for your support and hopefully see you at another occasion.
Money for the tickets will be returned in the same the ticket was purchased. If you purchased the ticket online, the ticket agency will be in touch with you within couple of days.
Thank you all for your support and cooperation.

The outstanding British band alt-J to perform in Brno for the first time ever! With their debut album ‘An Awesome Wave’ alt-J has turned themselves into an international sensation. The band of three got together in Leeds 10 years ago and since then alt-J managed to release three albums. The first record won the Mercury Prize and the second album ‘This Is All Yours’ was even nominated for Grammy Awards. Third and (as for now) last record ‘Relaxer’ has been gaining roaring success around the globe.
Hardcore guitars and electronic samples. A combination of punk, metal, dubstep and D’n’B. These are just few of the elements characterising the London based band. An out of this world performance sparkling with energy is what they have to offer. Enter Shikari is described not only by their fans as one of the best live playing bands.
In 2008 the band visited Brno as a support act for Linkin Park. Their gig was not like any other concert and left thousands of people in amazement. Come and see a band who has swiftly earned a reputation across the globe.
Dubioza Kolektiv is coming to Brno! Last show in Brno at Špilberk Balkannn was out of control and they introduced themselves as true headliner.
Bosnian express traveled with its unmistakable combination of ska, reggae and punk all over the world. It is an energetic show that will send you to your knees. It is going to be huge and wild.
Are you ready for balkan pirates?
The Russian bomb drops not even a year after their last completely sold out show in Czechia. Little Big - the controversial and perverse electronic group of four often compared to the rap-rave band Die Antwoord has the highest requirements in terms of sound system installation. Music focused servers are rightfully writing hymns about their live show performances.
Don’t take our word for it! Try and see the concert even if you think this might not be your cup of tea, we promise you this band will change your taste in beverages.
The band of three stunned the rap and electronic music world with their hit song ‘What happened’ which have become popular also for electronic music fans.
White-knuckle ride videoclips resemble the show itself - unique, hyped and mass hysteria cumulating. Get ready for a bass explosion and brutal lyrics! Get ready to for Dope D.O.D.!
This punk-rock band originating in England found their distinctive style in Kubrick’s masterpiece A Clockwork Orange.
Their dynamic on-stage performance is a brilliant combination of melodic punk-rock and an up-tempo variety performance. This band has produced multiple hit songs all of which are melodic and brisk as well as fun and catchy.
With their history of more than 40 years, it’s safe to say The Adicts have stuck together longer than most marriages.
Only two words. Sweden and Oi!... Perkele! Core of this band is going back to 1993 and since then boys have growed very well. They started as four musicians punk band but later on more and more they tend to Oí!, change text from native tongue into English and become more and more popular in their genre. At present they are performing as trio and one definitely cannot say this is not enough. Their figment is a melodic Oí! punk with folk components.
The Perkele are hard fascism and rasism opponents, as shown in their texts too.
The out of control Australian band does have balls!
Hardrock band Deez Nuts was formed in Melbourne in 2007 after the disbanding of the frontman’s metalcore band I Killed the Prom Queen.
J.J. Peters composed a song called ‘Deez Nuts’ and people went nuts indeed. In honour of the band’s name, the crowds have gone crazy at their shows, come and join the madness!
Izraelský generál hudebního chaosu zpustošil elektronickou scénu tím nejlepším způsobem. Sám sebe rád prohlašuje za člověka, který zničil dubstep.
Neopírá se o aktuální trendy, přemýšlí do budoucna a směr, kam bude novodobá elektronická hudba směřovat, přímo udává.
Seznamte se s jménem, které se objevuje na předních příčkách zahraničních vyhlášených festivalů jako Ultra Miami Festival nebo Tomorrowland.
Madball, the New York hardcore band, is arising already in the late 80th as a side project of the Agnostic Front.

Hardcore band from New York was originally a by-product of Agnostic Band. Thanks to their rising popularity the band struck out and began their solo tour. The current band members have been playing together since 2010 and have released 12 albums.
Madball are no newbies to Czech audiences, last playing in Czechia with other bands such as Hatebreed or Terror. A Bad-ass show is to be expected once again!
Pětičlenná dechová kapela se dala dohromady v Central Parku a strávila spoustu času hraním v newyorským metru. Jako buskeři se rychle dostali do povědomí lidí pomocí sociálních sítí a i nyní se stále vrací ke hraní na ulici.
Králové dechových nástrojů a jedněch bicích mají na svým kontě covery těch nejznámějších hitů, ale i úspěšnou vlastní tvorbu. Jejich show je živá a zábavná, propojená kreativními pohyby a choreografiemi celé kapely.
The most celebrated crossover band of all time Dog Eat Dog will play at the Urban Rock festival!
You can trace hip hop, hardcore and rock sound in their music.

Eskimo Callboy has an extensive fanbase in Czechia. The turbulent energy of their concerts is an experience you won’t forget.
The band released their fourth album in 2017.
A live show of Eskimo Callboy with their young energetic members might remind you of a group of beasts unleashed.
Avgas on fire is what it’s like to see the hardcore show of this Norwegian band. Seriously though, this group takes no prisoners which was obvious during their last performance in Brno when the club was nearly set on fire (allegedly it was part of the plan).
Their show is rapid and resonant. You might get the feeling that you are driving a ragtop along the ocean shore or just stare in amazement and have the best time of your life.
Beloved by Czechs, Balkan music means wild parties and dance raves until early mornings. Urban Rock promises exactly that!
Circus Brother are an obvious choice to represent Balkan music.
The band, tightly intertwined in the Czech club and festival scene, introduced a new album #VJERŽIM just this year. You might know the Circus Brothers from big live shows or street performances. One thing is certain – an unrestrained amount of crazy is to be expected. Snarl of disco-Balkan, traditional brass music, disco beat, tacky pop, dirty house, hardcore rap, catchy folk - this band is beyond description, come and see it with your own eyes.
Czech music formation reckon itself as trash-metal and rock n’ roll mix. There has only been one album released by Hentai Corporation in 12 years - until 2017 when their second born ‘Intracellular Pets’ was introduced. Wild live shows, instrumental passages, and vocals by Radek Škarohlíd have made this group quite a rarity among other Czech bands. Also, celebrities from Czech show business are often referenced in the lyrics. As Hentai Corporation has no problem communicating their opinion loud and clear.
This band gave birth to the most controversial videoclip on the Czech market - you can check out the censored version here ... and find out the uncensored on-line.
The perennial star of the Czech punk scene. You can find them performing in garages, boozers, bars, clubs or festivals - great energy is always guaranteed.
Not much here to say - If you don’t know Volanty, you are not punk. If you are not punk, you have to know Volanty.
Are we gonna mosh? Yes, we are!
Let’s mosh punkers!
Czech hard-rock band originated in the city Broumov. This is not at all their first festival appearance - you’ve had a chance to see them singing alongside bands such as Divokej Bill, Post-it, Cocotte Minute, and many others. Imodium was even a support act for the band Simple Plan in September 2011!
This group deserves acknowledgement for their ideas as well - Apartment tour, concert in theatre or in Bory prison.
One more bait... Imodium is releasing a brand-new album ‘Element’!
Slovenská rocková hudební skupina Zoči Voči z Nitry, která ve své tvorbě vychází z hudebních žánrů jakými jsou metalcore, punk, rock a hardcore.

The group from Brno was created in 2012 with frontwoman singer-songwriter Nikola Muchova who has released three albums so far.
Nikola gives less and less fuck as time flies. She sings as she feels it, and some might have a hard time handling that.
You can look forward to celebrated lyrics by this sensational Czech femipunk band!
Four heartland-punk hopeless romantics based in Prague found their temporary address in Brno.

Eventually they fell in love with Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen and The Gaslight Anthem which inspired their new sound.

Honem patří mezi lokální brněnské punk-rockové kapely, která skvěle doplní lineup na Urban Rocku a uvede vás do varu. Borci už zažili nejeden pankovej mejdan a patří mezi stálice, které můžete potkat nejen na večírcích v Brně a jeho okolí.
Abyss, Watching Me je kapela z Prahy, která se se svojí tvorbou pohybuje na pomezí alternative rock a posthardcore. Je to jedna z těch kapel, u kterých víme, že vás nakopne do správné nálady.
