Friday saw the start of this year’s Metalfest, a hard rock music festival held outdoors at the amphitheater at Plzeň Zoo. This year, more than 35 local and foreign bands are performing. Metal legend Alice Cooper was the biggest draw on Friday night, after acting as ‘godfather’ earlier in the afternoon to a four-month-old baby rhino at Plzeň Zoo. Friday’s appearance launched Cooper’s three-week European tour, an organizer said.
