Masters of Puppets is a week-long alternative psychedelic music festival held in the picturesque Czech countryside each year. More than 160 hours of music, art, and performances on 3 stages, just a few hours from Prague and Vienna, await you!
Masters of Puppets transcends cultural divides and nurtures the growth of underground electronic and experimental music culture. Presented by an experienced team of music enthusiasts for music enthusiasts.
Our 2023 edition: Palaeo Vision defies expectations by introducing previously unseen features such as a new ground-breaking Rage Stage design, a 360° interdisciplinary art exhibition, a 60-hour Tekno showcase on the Kodama Stage, the brand new 'Tortuga Stage,' a revised gastronomy concept, and much more.
We believe that gathering with international friends to listen to and celebrate incredible music on massive Lambda Lab QX3 sound systems, share stories, and explore new ideas promotes mental balance.
The wide variety of cultural attractions allows you to create your own itinerary and strive for one-of-a-kind and unforgettable experiences. We've been inspiring open-air-festival and electronic music fans around the world for the best part of a decade now!
Our market provides vegan, vegetarian, and flexitarian homemade foods as well as handcrafted treasures like jewellery and clothing, while the Bau Art Gallery and Akademia space complete the composition with education and visionary art exposition. Come have some fun, explore your personal reality, and take in the surreal artscape that surrounds you.
