We want this festival with an anti-war message to be accessible to people regardless of finances. We will be happy for any solidarity contribution, recommended from 250 CZK / 10€ to 666 CZK / 26,66€. It's up to you how you can and want to support. If you think about how much is the optimal donation, how about 300-400? If you don't have a penny, come anyway, I'll be happy if you dance! We will not leave anyone in front of the club.

We donate your solidarity donations (after deducting costs) to help SOLIDARITY COLLECTIVES - an autonomous anarchist association of collectives from Ukraine, which actively defends itself against Russian aggression and helps everyone fleeing war. In the ongoing Putin war, anarchists are not left out either, both in Ukraine and in Russia itself. Their possibilities to reach material and financial support through official channels are of course limited...

  • "SOLIDARITY COLLECTIVES is a team of volunteers who previously worked under the name Operation Solidarity... "We are an anti-authoritarian volunteer network that unites several popular initiatives.
  • We help the Ukrainian resistance movement in the fight against the Russian invasion, we support the progressive forces in this fight, we help people who are suffering because of the war, and we spread information about what is happening in Ukraine.
  • We support anti-authoritarian activists, union members and rank-and-file activists who have joined military units.... We regularly receive humanitarian aid and deliver it to where it is most needed. These are usually medicine, clothing, food, sleeping bags and mats, gas burners, fuel for them and electrical equipment.
  • We attend conferences and debates and speak to journalists around the world to tell them our position - that everyone who shares the values ​​of freedom and equality should support our fight today.
  • Everything we do is only possible thanks to international solidarity. So if you want to stop Russian imperialism or mitigate its devastating consequences, which is already turning into a humanitarian disaster, you can help us!"

Punk, crust and hardcore have always been associated with clear political and anti-war attitudes, always on the side of the oppressed! 2022 is no different! Riot Over River is a punk festival that says a clear message: "Stop Putin and his war in Ukraine!" Stop his war crimes! We have no illusions about the Ukrainian government and we do not support any form of nationalism, but we clearly stand with the Ukrainian people and support their defense against Russia's war."

The event takes place in the legendary club CROSS - 2 minutes from tram and metro stop "C" Nádraží Holešovice, where night tram 94 also runs back to the city center.
