CzechTek 2006 to be Held Within the Hradiště Military Region

The Czech techno music festival 2006 will be held within the training grounds of the Hradiště Military Region, western Bohemia, in July.

Following an initiative by Minister of Defence of the CR Karel Kühnl, the CzechTech 2006, the free techno music festival, will be held on an area of more than 51 hectares ( about 0.2 square mile/5.5 million square feet ), at a location normally used only for military training and exercises.

The spokesman for the Defence Minister, Andrej Čírtek, announced the agreement regarding the lease of the military area, which was signed on the 14 June 2006 between the Ministry of Defence of the CR and the Association of Czech Sound Systems - ALIANCE-23, in Pilsen, western Bohemia.

The lease agreement for the CzechTek 2006 was concluded for the period of 24 July to 7 August 2006. The major part of the festival traditionally takes place during the last weekend of July.

The ALIANCE-23 association is obliged, according to the agreement, to provide for organisation, mobile toilets, medical support, and appropriate cleaning of the area upon the conclusion of the festival.
