Prague Metronome Music Festival 2018

Two Days, Multiple Bands
It’s only been going a short time but the Prague Metronome Music Festival seems to be settling into it’s late June slot in the Prague Entertainment calendar. Don’t get this confused with the United Islands of Prague Music Festival which is on at the same time. That’s free. Metronome Festival Weekend is a ticketed event i.e. you are buying a ticket valid for the whole of the 2-day event.
When and Where?
This year 2018, the ticketed opening night is on Friday June 22nd finishing on Saturday June 23rd. Not published yet but in previous years they’ve had a warm-up night before the ticketed event and that has been free to enter so I’ll look out for that and publish details here. Also the Metronomefest has always been Sat/Sun so this year seems to be different.
The Prague Metronome Music Festival location is mostly within the Vystaviste (Prague Exhibition Grounds) in Holešovice Prague 7 but also takes over part of the adjacent Stromovka Park as well. This is a multi-stage venue. The “Park” stage starts in the afternoon and runs through to the evening. The “Club” stage starts in the afternoon and finishes late night. The “Moon” stage starts in the evening and runs to early morning. The headline acts play the “Metronome” stage on Saturday evening and that should be the only stage playing until the headline act has finished and then the other stages start up again.
You can walk here from the Old Town in 25 minutes or take the Number 17 Tram.
Who’s playing at the Prague Metronome Music Festival?
2018 already has Chemical Brothers, Tom Odell, David Byrne and Velvet Underground booked in but I don’t yet know what days they’ll be playing. DJ sets are usually earlier in the afternoon and this year they have Dave Rowntree and Faithless as part of that. As usual, a host of other locally known bands and breaking European talent from start to finish.
A nice touch this year is the Spotify link. On the website open up the “Artists” tab and choose a performer. The text may be Czech or English but underneath is the link to tracks from that artist or band on Spotify so you can hear their style.
