As in past years, Metronome Festival Prague will not just feature huge international and Czech stars, but also progressive artists from around the world. Many of them will perform on the festival’s Moon Stage where most acts at least partially work with electronica. Sets will last into the wee hours and the stage will be the festival’s chief afterparty, which is how its program and line-up were conceived.
Popular Polish electro-pop group Kamp! will be one of the chief attractions of the Moon Stage, presenting new material from their forthcoming album. The Moon Stage will also play host to Dresden-based duo Ätna, who will perform their mix of electronica and world music. And massively-talented Israeli singer and rapper Noga Erez will make the Metronome Festival one her stops this summer along with a series of other prestigious festivals. Prague’s own Ohm Square have prepared a special set for the Moon Stage; their first performance in some time. The Czech scene will also be represented by Ille with singer Olga Königová and Katarzia, whose most-recent album Antigona has fuelled her skyrocketing popularity.
The co-headliners of the Moon Stage will be Digitalism, the German duo that has been one of the biggest stars of the new rave scene since 2004 and has remixed tracks for acts such as the White Stripes, Klaxons, and David Gahan. The group’s albums are released under Paris’s prestigious Kitsuné Musique label. Danny Howard, who will also headline the Moon Stage, is a world-renowned British DJ with a residence at The Syndicate, the UK’s largest club. Danny has recently embarked on producing his own tracks after making a name for himself as a legendary BBC Radio 1 DJ with his show Dance Anthems that draws more than a million listeners every Saturday.
