 Fast Food Orchestra was formed in the mid 90´s and since then has been active on stage as well as in the studio. Their traditional ska sound is close to rocksteady but also has unbelievebly groovy dancing rhythms with a taste of dancehall and ragga. Band is also well known for their unforgetable and entertaining live performances which usually end up as a big bukkake.

 Fast Food Orchestra has released already four albums starting with Fugision Party (2000), Lastfood (2002), Mangrooves (2004) and Urban Menu (2008). Thay have been also appearing regulary on the most of the Czech summer festivals and play lots of shows in Germany, Slovakia and Switzerland. This is their second time in Israel after their performance on the Prague Tel Aviv Urban Party in Barby in 2011.




NiceLand got first recognition in 2007 winning the prestigious Coca-Cola Pop Star competition, which gained them a contract with Sony BMG. The subsequently released debut album Little Black Book was highly praised by critics, receiving multiple local awards. The second album God Has Her Ways was produced by Amak Golden and recorded in 2010 with guest appearances of multiple well-known Czech musicians and members of Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. Currently the band is working on their third album.

Shifting the musical style from acoustic indie pop sound of the first album towards more guitar and electronic driven as well as experimental approach NiceLand toured all over the Czech Republic including appearances on all of the major local festivals with additional shows in Germany and Belgium. This is their first time in Israel.
