Prague’s Up Festival announces first wave of acts
Already renowned as one of Europe’s most aesthetically stunning cities, 2018 is the year that Prague says hello to UP Festival. Needless to say, the Czech Republic capital has always enjoyed a buoyant electronic music scene, but it’s the presence of UP that’s sure to turn heads and attract visitors from far and wide this summer...
Created ‘with the sole purpose of driving the already rich artistically culture into new realms’ and to ‘create new opportunities and help shine a light on one of the most beautiful countries in Europe’, UP really does offer something pretty special. Aside from a line-up that boasts heavyweight players a la Ricardo Villalobos, Apollonia, Magda and B Pitch boss Ellen Allien, the music will last for 72 hours straight, with 4 stages and over 50 artists on show. Besides that, the action is also going down in Prague's iconic Exhibition Centre, a 36-hectare space that's dominated by the Art Nouveau Industrial Palace.
Running from the 11-13th May and with tickets starting at just €45, UP already looks like an absolute steal, and may yet prove to be one of the summer's most exciting new parties.
