Slovakia’s king of rap came, saw, and triumphed. Over the course of his career, Patrik Vrbovský, a.k.a. Rytmus, has managed to erect several important pillars of the local rap universe. The night is his!  ​

PSH (Peneři strýčka Homeboye)
Vorel, Němec, and Gorila punch it into the night. Prague’s legendary rap’n’roll formation combines solid track architecture with an irresistibly idiot vitality. Starring Orion, Vladimir 518, and DJ Mike Trafik.  

The black horse is coming from Brno! Crushing points alternate with wit, dirty blows resonate with the head and space. Connecting old school with a modern, amazing journey through rap space and time. Vodka and caviar are recommended for listening.

House DJsBidlo / Aid Kid (LIVE) / DJ Magdalaine and more
From the world of film back onto the dance floor! Pulsating DJ sets reflecting the fresh energy of the domestic club scene. A wild ride with sound element Ondřej Mikula, a.k.a. Aid Kid, who will fire off his exceptionally diverse, always surprising collections of tracks, including his latest LP, Collection (Addict Sound, 2021). Music to bust open any quarantine.
