Live Concert Report: 2021 Josefstadt (Day Two) Czech

Band Photo: Hypocrisy (?)

Day two of Josefstadt has ended. Before we get into some photos from the day, I wanted to touch on a couple of issues from my day one report.

By late afternoon on day two, there were no signs that fire had ravaged part of the food area on day one. New tents were in place, new signage, new cooking equipment, and everything was back to normal. I’m not sure how such a quick renewal can take place, but someone made it happen.

The sound/lighting booth that I mentioned as being a viewing obstruction on day one was moved back quite a bit for day two. There were still hundreds of people with little or no view behind it during the Marduk and Hypocrisy sets though.

Now for some day two photos.

Mean Messiah

Laura Guldemond of Burning Witches

Truchło Strzygi

I felt like Truchło Strzygi had the best performance of the day—very lively and entertaining. Smiles from ear to ear all across the audience.

Kids get in free!

Dordeduh panorama on the Octagon stage

The above photo was taken from the previously mentioned bar area that serves as a balcony of sorts for the Octagon stage. Best view in the house, but, unfortunately, only 15 or so people can fit.


Ad Nauseam


The day three update won’t happen for a few days, as I will be too busy traveling, but it will happen. I promise. I’m really looking forward to Azarath and Mgla today.

More photos (and I mean dozens more) will eventually be posted here.

The fire was actually pretty small, only one catering tent was affected. I heard somebody tried to put out oil fire using water and that's what started the flames. The reaction of the firemen was actually a bit slow. The car was ready inside the festival area but nobody told them about the fire and they didn't notice until some festival guests came to call them. Since it was a small fire, they handled that fast. However, the tent had gas bombs inside, therefore they called for more cars to have enough water to cool the gas bombs. I believe one guy was lightly injured during the fire (probably some burns).
The other tents were closed only for security and there was no problem to reopen them. The tent affected by fire belongs to a bigger catering company (they are literally on every festival) and they probably just brought another car.
