Among the confirmed performers are Aneta Langerová, Buty, Igor Orozovič or the band Dunaj. The central theme of this year’s edition will be the mutual relationship between nature, man and machines. The organizers will stream the entire program live on social networks. Vladana Brouková informed ČTK about this on behalf of the Nerudný Fest organizing company.
“The challenges we face also require many and fundamental changes in our approach to life. We must begin to use all human imagination in reshaping economic systems, technological developments and social structures. And so that the priority is not only well-being, but also sustainability and inclusiveness. Through innovation and collaboration, we can find a way to a future where progress and harmony intertwine. It’s up to us. The future is us,” said Jan Gregar, executive director of the Nerudný fest organization.
Moderators Jindřich Šídlo and Tereza Dočkalová will guide the audience through the program. The concert will be free, visitors will be able to make a voluntary contribution instead of the entrance fee.

The Concert for the Future has been held since 2016. It is part of the Freedom Festival platform, an open grouping of independent civic initiatives and organizations organizing events for the anniversary of November 17. Regional organizers also join the platform every year, either as civic initiatives or individuals. Last year, thousands of visitors to the Concert for the Future filled the entire upper half of the square.
