Beyond, Staroměstké náměstí

Because the aim of the festival is to spread it out into numerous Prague districts, two routes have been prepared for visitors this year. The Centrum route has 15 stops, is 5.8 km long and takes about 3.5 hours. The Vinohrady route has 5 tops, is 2.2 km long and can be done in an hour and a half.

We are bringing you 5 highlights from this year’s festival! 


3D video mapping and light tunnel

The Tyršův Dům building will feature 3D video mapping projection called Multiverse, created by Spanish artist Filip Roca. Make sure you don’t miss the light tunnel called Beyond, which you can enter on Old Town Square.

HEARDT interactive piano

You can play this luxurious piano surrounded by a structure shaped like a giant heart, named Heardt (a combination of the English words “heart” and “to be heard”) in Haštalské Street. The light from the piano, which has also been invited to the American Burning Man festival, responds to what the player plays, meaning that the viewer can play a role.

Tentacles in the gardens of the Agnes Convent

With your own presence, you as a viewer will be able to modify the light and sound tentacles of this octopus by German artists RaumZeitPiraten. The Octopus Garden project will be underscored by the luxurious setting of the Agnes Convent gardens.


Novelty on St. Ludmila church

Video mapping on the Church of St. Ludmila on Náměstí Míru is traditionally one of the most visited projections. This year, there will be a display by French artist Yann Nguema, who is at the forefront of his field at present. But that’s not all!

To celebrate the 5th birthday, every evening at 11 p.m. all 5 video maps created for this Prague landmark in the history of the festival will be shown. You can look forward to a truly deluxe experience!

Vladimir 518 and Man Machine

One of the most striking personalities on our cultural scene, musician and artist Vladimir 518, created an almost living creature, the Man Machine installation, in collaboration with other artists within the SPAM audio-visual project. It is expected to be the most photographed object this year, and you should certainly see it for yourself. It is essentially a machine, a statue made of many audio-visual components, such as heads, projectors, blinders and lasers. It will be on display at TJ Sokol Vinohrady.

The luxurious festival also has an accompanying program, a gallery zone that includes 4 galleries and a SIGNAL CALLING section that presents interesting projects by the younger generation. All the information is available on the festival website, including a map to download. We wish you a luxurious audio-visual experience!
