Top 10: Music Festivals in the Czech Republic 2020

Aside from sporadically producing international football icons and hosting a continual conveyor-belt of stag/hen do's in their delightful capital city, Czech Republic, or Czechia as it's uncommonly referred to, still exudes the air of a country that's been relatively untouched by swarms of tourism and fanfare. 

Despite an enigmatic reputation, the Czech Republic is home to a long list of Europe's most renowned music festivals, whether it's owed to an imperious lineup, being a hedonistic haven for a dedicated demographic, or merely due to an awe-inspiring locale. 

From Let it Roll to Transmission and Colours of Ostrava, we've pinpointed of the top music festivals in the Czech Republic.

Let It Roll

Headliners (2020): Pendulum, Dimension, Sub Focus [DJ set] + MC I.D

Let It Roll have been tearing up the drum and bass scene for years now, becoming one of the genre's leading lights. 

Their flagship festival, held each August on a former military airbase near Prague, features over 300 artists across 8 stages and is now the place to discover the best new D&B producers, as well as a jaw-dropping opening ceremony.
