Help us choose bands for the next Pilsner Fest!

23.11.2010 Pilsner Urquell

This year’s Pilsner Fest set records in more than one way; it had the largest number of visitors, and a mass toast of 5,331 fans of our beer also took place. Thus we are faced with a challenge in organising a  respectable continuation of this celebration. That is why we want to continue the successful marriage of both brands, Pilsner Urquell and Gambrinus, for the festival,“ says Vladimír Jurina, Corporate Brand Manager of the brand.

The preparations for next year will continue with the planning of the event, mainly with the quick signing of interesting bands. You can vote for your favourite bands already on the Facebook page of the Pilsner Fest. In this way you will help us with the preparation of the music for the event. „We will also negotiate cooperation with the city, because organisation of such a large event is an important part of its current cultural programme. We definitely won’t embarrass Plzeň, the European Capital of Culture of 2015,“ adds Vladimír Jurina.

Just as a reminder: Pilsner Fest 2010 in numbers:

  • More than 50,000 people attended Pilsner Fest.
  • A record 768 hl of beer were served, which represents more than 150,000 beers.
  • We succeeded in breaking the record for the largest mass toast. Ours included 5,331 fans of beers from Plzeň.
