METRONOME PRAGUE – MUSIC & ARTS FAIR is a four-day music and art event that provides visitors with a unique experience right in the centre of Prague.

With top international stars, a multitude of art forms, taking place in the centre of the metropolis and perfect timing at the most beautiful time of the year, Metronome Prague aims to be the number one metropolitan music festival.

In addition to the four-day event in June, METRONOME PRAGUE brings music fans (and not only them) several others throughout the year. In the past, one of the highlights was the coveted music party, NÁROD SOBĚ („NATION TO ITSELF“), in February 2021, when 40 musical projects performed at the National Theatre in one evening under strict quarantine measures. The auditorium had to be empty, but more than 1.5 million viewers watched the live broadcast on Czech Television. Then, in 2022, just days after Russia invaded Ukraine, METRONOME and Czech Television organised the CONCERT FOR UKRAINE, which stood at the very beginning of a huge wave of solidarity with the Ukrainian people.

The METRONOME PRAGUE festival itself is the first international music and art event to be held in Prague, with the 6th edition kicking off on 22 June 2023 at the Prague Exhibition Centre. Thanks to the diversity of the event, the organizers reach out to listeners of all ages and genres every year. It relies on the current events in modern music, but does not neglect the still living genre classics.

The dramaturgy does not forget about domestic performers, who often offer a unique programme, such as the return of the Sexy Dancers, the combinations of J.A.R. and the gospel choir Maranatha or Ivan Kral with Jiří Suchý, or the mega-concert of MIG 21 with the National Theatre Chorus and Orchestra in Prague called SymfoMIG, when nearly 100 musicians gathered on the stage of the Křižík Fountain. In its first four full-fledged years, when still operating under its original name Metronome Festival Prague, the event was host to stars such as Kraftwerk, Primal Scream, Liam Gallagher, Morcheeba, Sting, Iggy Pop, Foals, Chemical Brothers, Kasabian, Tom Odell, Ella Eyre, David Byrne, John Cale and Massive Attack. From the local scene, Ohm Square, Floex, Ille, Tata Bojs 30, David Koller with Katarzia, the aforementioned Sexy Dancers and dozens of others performed.

Covid's time brought METRONOME WARM UP. The original replacement for the cancelled 2021 edition, which we implemented in September of that year, brought the idea of a "warm-up" event on the festival grounds. Thus, the festival started on Wednesday in 2022, when the charity concert UKRAINIAN FREEDOM VOICES filled the festival's MOON STAGE, and then in 2023, when the Ukrainian Queens Orchestra and David Koller and his band performed.

In 2022 and 2023, nearly 22,000 visitors came to METRONOME PRAGUE and were completely absorbed by superstars Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, Jamiroquai, Beck, ZAZ, M83 or Underworld, Everything Everything, Aurora, Lola March or Oh Wonder, from the locals mentioned SymfoMIG, Tata Bojs, Jana kirschner, Mňága a Žďorp, Zrní, the return of Alice with Dan Bárta, Marpo, Midi Lidi, Lenka Dusilová, Lenny, Prago Union or RedZed.
