The Metronome Stage, the main one at the Metronome Festival Prague, offers guests something extra: comfortable terraced seating that you won’t find at other festivals. The VIP Zone offers a fantastic unobstructed view of the Metronome Stage with a wealth of food and drinks stands nearby, as well as our festival partners’ locations where other parts of the program take place. The Metronome Stage is equipped with massive LED screens so you can see everything happening on stage in amazing detail no matter where you are. The program is also staggered so the performances on the Metronome and ČT Park stages do not conflict and guests can see everything they want to thanks to their close proximity to one another.
The main stage #1 of the Metronome Festival Prague since its inception, the Metronome Stage will see the biggest stars perform while providing exceptional comfort and conditions for the public. Headlining the stage will be Liam Gallagher, who will not only perform hits from the 1990s when he was the frontman for Oasis, but also material from his solo career including new songs from his latest studio effort. His set will be significantly longer than normal festival performances, which reflects that Liam Gallagher is experiencing a musical and personal renaissance in the run-up to the early-June release of As It Was, a feature-length documentary about his life and work.
The other big name on the Metronome Stage will be Germany’s Kraftwerk. Their music laid the bedrock for today’s electronic scene and they are true pioneers in using computers and synthesizers, as well as combining them with visual aspects of their performance. Their 3D concert project, which will be performed outdoors for the first time in the Czech Republic, has also been praised by art critics. Each guest will receive special 3D glasses that will unlock an amazing three-dimensional musical and visual experience.
Other performers on the Metronome Stage will include the popular British group Morcheeba, which has broken down barriers between genres and combined electronica with blues, rock, and world music. The group has prepared a specially-planned set for the Metronome Festival. The first single by British neo-soul project Jungle was nominated for a BBC award and it was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, the most respected British music award, only a year later. They have also performed at the world-renown Glastonbury festival and will now grace the Metronome Stage.
The Hlasy svobody (Voices of Freedom) concert will be the chief domestic attraction on the Metronome Stage. The performance will see collaboration between several generations of Czech women singers, from Lenka Filipová to Monika Načeva, through to Never Sol and Žofii Dares. They will celebrate 30 years since the Velvet Revolution and the Fall of Communism, which will also be one of the chief themes of the entire festival.
