Other domestic and foreign stars will be announced soon!

Metronome Festival Prague is the first major multi-genre festival in the Czech capital after many years. We focus on all ages and genres and on the latest in contemporary music and the most vibrant music from the past. Besides great foreign stars, our program also features domestic artists who usually offer special concerts designed specifically for the Metronome Festival Prague. As a major festival, we also place great importance on excellent sound quality, light show and comfortable facilities for visitors of the festival.

The first year of the Metronome Festival was held in 2016. Besides main stars Iggy Pop and Foals, the festival also featured Crystal Fighters. Performers from the domestic scene included J.A.R. with gospel choir Maranatha or Ivan Král with Jiří Suchý and others. The festival was attended by 7,500 music fans. The next year, attendance almost doubled to 14,000 ticketholders. The main stars were Sting and Kasabian, and there were also concerts by The Veils, Young Fathers and GusGus. The tradition of non-traditional performances of Czech artists specially created for our festival was taken up by David Koller with several guests, Monkey Business, playing songs by George Michael, and Klára Vytisková with new band The Pop and Grammy-winning jazz organist Ondřej Pivec.
