The Tap Tap & Kilometrový tanec CZ
The Friday program of Pohoda in the Air will begin with the Czech big band The Tap Tap and the Kilometer Dance project. While in 2016 the crowd fell for them at the Orange Stage, this time they will perform on perhaps the most barrier-free stage—the runway of the Trenčín Airport. Their concert will also include the festival's only dance performance. Radoslav Piovarči of EnKnapGroup will present the Kilometer Dance by Katarína Zagorski over an empty runway and other nooks and crannies of the festival in a special adaptation for Pohoda in the Air.
The Tap Tap have released four studio albums (including the latest Noha na kolejích) and two “live” albums from the Czech State Opera.
