Magnetic Festival brings EDM to forefront of Prague once more

The biggest indoor EDM festival in central Europe, Magnetic Festival took over Prague’s PVA Exhibition Hall in Czech Republic, once again focusing on leading artists in the scene. Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Avicii, Martin Garrix, Fedde Le Grand, Afrojack, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike are just a few of the headliners to have previously played for the attendance of 12,000, with a second festival set to take place just before Christmas.

Looking at this year’s line-up, Nervo and Blasterjaxx were chosen to deliver their sets in headlining slots for this night. And having arrived as Cesqeaux closed his set, we were lucky enough to witness his changeover with young future bass house protégé Mesto. A performance full of heavy drops, Mesto’s sound was perhaps a little extreme for only the second set of the night, but seemed to garner a positive reaction from the crowd, who were keen to push the rave into full flow.

With Kryder next up, the English DJ was keen to bring the groove back into the room, dropping Axtone mentor Axwell‘s Barricade, which provided the euphoric crowd with a moment to remember. With Jewelz & Sparks following, the duo dropped their newest single Parallel Lines released on Revealed Recordings, sending the whole arena crazy for headliner Blasterjaxx. With Thom touring alone and Makhlaf cooking up new tracks in studio, the big-room guru went through a flurry of hard drops, attacking the 140BPM barometer.

And with anticipation building, cue the main headliner of the night – Australian twins NERVO. From the off, it was clear that the duo are firm fan favourites here in Prague, and Liv & Mim had obviously been practising their language skills, shouting Czech phrases for “Hands Up!” – The ‘Revolution’ pair delivered a classic EDM focused set with lot of well known vocals and edits to spice the mix up. But Magnetic is not only about the artists, but also about the production on site, and stunning visuals engulfed the crowd, with lasers shooting from two side terraces.

KURA had the tough task of following the twins, and through a stunning mix of Portuguese electro house, delivered the most surprising of the night. Some of the transitions were so unexpected and original that the crowd couldn’t stop dancing.  Tom Swoon, with a tracklist of silky mash-ups, and resident John Culter took over the booth to bring an end to the night. And by this point, it was clear that if you are seeking quality EDM in middle Europe – few can rival Magnetic right now. Set in the beautiful city of Prague, the next event takes place just before Christmas, so why wait? Book tickets now and experience this magical evening for yourself!
