Špilberk International Music Festival 2023 – Film & Video game music concerts

The Špilberk International Music Festival 2023, to be celebrated on August 20-27, will present in its program a film music concert dedicated to the movies of Jean-Paul Belmondo and a video game music concert dedicated to ‘Kingdom Come: Deliverance’.


Špilberk International Music Festival is a traditional open-air music festival, which annually brings unforgettable musical evenings in the large castle courtyard to the inhabitants and visitors of Brno, Czech Republic. In addition to large symphonic works, it also offers connections with other genres under the summer sky, and thus tries to make classical music accessible to those who might not otherwise be able to access it.
