THE A4 club is staying put. The Contemporary Culture Centre agreed with the Culture Ministry and the National Culture Centre (NOC) to allow A4 to remain at its premises on SNP Square that used to house the V-klub, the Pravda daily wrote.

“For now, we do not have it on paper, but there is willingness on all sides,” Ľubomír Burgr of A4 confirmed for the daily.

The NOC had wanted to find a new client for the space the club occupies, but the club’s management and the public opposed the move.

Eventually, more than 2,000 people, including several celebrities, signed a petition against it.
“The Culture Ministry is interested in supporting experimental artistic creation and is looking for solutions that will provide a stable place for alternative culture at the V-klub in the future,” said Jozef Bednár, spokesman for the Culture Ministry.

The new contract, to be signed by September 1 at the latest, will extend A4’s right to stay in the property until at least the end of 2008. Future operation will depend on the building’s reconstruction.

During its four-year history, A4 has organised more than 800 events, including many international festivals. Once a well-known music club, the site now needs an injection of at least Sk12 million.
“We would like to get money from European Union grants, the regional government and private investors,” Burgr said.
