American actor Elijah Wood, known for his roles in numerous films, including The Lord of the Rings and Sin City, was applauded by thousands of attendees at the Trutnoff Open Air Festival which kicked off on Thursday. Wood is attending as part of a project titled Wooden Wisdom & DJ Fitz. The actor received a hand-carved wooden pipe from organisers as a gift. Trutnoff is one of the Czech Republic’s best-known music festivals with a more than 30-year-long tradition. The festival has ties to the former underground scene in Czechoslovakia in the 1970s and was often attended by late president Václav Havel or the late poet Martin Jirous. The legendary Patti Smith is performing at the festival this year; Thursday saw performances by the seminal Czech punk group Visací zámek and others.
