When and Where Is The Prague Metronome Music Festival?

The 2023 Festival is from 4pm on Thursday June 22nd to 5am on Sunday June 25th. Note: when they say they open Sunday it’s just the Saturday carry over into Sunday 5am i.e. there are no actual “Sunday tickets”.

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 with a selection of SEVEN stages (3x internal and 4x external).

You can walk here from the Old Town in 25 minutes or take trams 1, 6, 12, 17, 25, 93 (night), 94 (night) STOP: Výstavište Holešovice.

Who’s playing at the Prague Metronome Music Festival?

The headline act on the first day in 2023 is Jamiroquai with Aurora (solo singer from Norway). I’m quite familiar with Jamiroquai but when I heard Aurora for the first time I had memories of listening to Dolores Riordan from the Cranberries. Several artists have their own page on the site with associated youtube videos and artist homepages. DJ sets are usually earlier in the afternoon. In 2023 there are 50 different bands performing 80 concerts including locally known bands and breaking European talent from start to finish. This year there are bands from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Israel, Canada, Norway, Sweden, France, Ireland, USA and Spain. Check for updates on the website below.
