The festival was created by the producer, composer, songwriter and film musician Michal Dvořák, a member of the famous Czech band Lucie, the initiator and visionary winner of several music awards.
The SOUNDTRACK Award as beautiful as it is, was created in cooperation with the architect Stefan Milkov and traditional Czech company Preciosa. It is granted to artists for their extraordinary contribution to either Czech or world film music and has been received so far by Michael Pavlíček, Nicola Piovani, Karel Svoboda im memorim and Radim Hladík.
History of the festival
The 0th year of the festival SOUNDTRACK Poděbrady was held in 2016, as an audiovisual show including such Czech music stars as David Koller, Michal Kocáb, Jaroslav Uhlíř, Dasha, Ondřej Ruml and, of course, Michal Dvořák.
In 2017, Michal Dvořák introduced the 1st year of the festival as we know it – four days full of audiovisual program and multimedia held in the spa park.
