One of the most intriguing additions to this year’s fourth-annual Metronome Festival Prague will be performances in the Prague Planetarium only a few meters from the festival grounds. The building and its dome designed by famous Czech architect Jaroslav Fragner is one of the largest of its kind in the world and will provide an original space for experiencing more contemplative music.
The Planetarium Stage will host Ondřej Holý’s dné project, which took home all three major Czech music awards (Vinyla, Apollo, and Anděl) for their 2016 album These Semi Feelings, They Are Everywhere. They will be joined by PFO Sexteto; a six-piece group that spun-off from the Prague Film Orchestra, playing a broad repertoire ranging from classical music to film scores. Bára Zmeková will present her delicate melodies that balance between alternative rock, jazz, and folk. She recently released her second album Lunaves, recorded with experienced producer Ondřej Ježek. Prague-based British singer Adrian T. Bell, the former frontman of The Prostitutes, will present his more direct rock songs from his introspective solo album on the same stage.
