Let It Roll Festival is drawing near – so let’s quickly look at what to expect and look forward to. 10 things you should not miss...
THE STRONGEST DRUM AND BASS LINE-UP IN THE WORLD!
The festival’s main pillar has always been its stellar line-up, absolutely unparalleled among all Czech festivals. This year it includes more than 330 artists spread across nine stages from Wednesday to Sunday, promising an unforgettable experience. The biggest drum and bass celebrities such as Andy C, Camo & Krooked, Netsky, Noisia, Pendulum or Wilkinson are just the tip of the iceberg, as the festival gives ample space to practically all drum and bass subgenres imaginable, so there’s something to please every D’n’B enthusiast!
A SPECTACULAR OPENING CEREMONY!
Let It Roll, the year’s greatest drum and bass celebration, starts in less than a month! This is why the organizers revealed a few things about this year’s opening show –a grandiose ceremony that is absolutely unparalleled among all Czech festivals.
The architect of the first part is no other than Abis, an ex-member of the legendary (though now inactive) duo Jane Miller, who authored the complete opening soundtrack for LIR 2016. The second part is in the hands of the young British producer Joe Ford. The third chapter will open the floor for Rido, a seasoned drum and bass producer from Prague, who is also not new to this ceremony, having contributed to one of the previous opening soundtracks as well. There is one more name that has caused quite a stir – the famous Austrian pioneer and experimenter Mefjus. The same could probably be said about the fifth part by the multitalented english producer Muzzy, who swims between various genres with the alacrity of a piranha. The last name on this all-star bill is The Prototypes, a duo known for their tracks full of throbbing energy that leave no foot still. This is without doubt the best selection for the ultimate part, in which the entire opening ceremony reaches its peak.
A BRAND NEW MAIN STAGE!
Our main stage is a story of its own. Again, the stage will be bigger than it was in the previous years. The biggest festival stage in the Czech Republic will once again shine with a new look. The look and shape of it will be completely re-designed by a team of architects and more than 200 technicians.
THE FESTIVAL STORY WILL REVEAL ANOTHER CHAPTER!
As the story progresses we are getting to the war between Blues and Reds. We are going through lots of battles, clashes and hardships of war. The story will tell a tale of a Civil War on the home planet of robots. The festival story will be submerged to the music stages and their designs as well to as to the festival atmosphere.

NEW FESTIVAL AREA!
The festival area has undergone a lot of changes within the past years, but this year it will be completely different.

BATHING AREAS CLOSE TO THE FESTIVAL
Let It Roll festival is happening at the ex-military airfield Milovice. Sadly this area does not offer a bathing option for the festival. You may refresh yourself in other, proximate places.
Lake u Ostré, close to Lysá nad Labem is a clean water lake and the dead-end of river Labe. For sun-bathing and swimming we advise the beach-sand based banks on the North and West sides (in the area of Autocamp), both of them freely accessible. Volleyball play-field (foot volleyball also), food, boat rental, kids playground with swings and a water slide.
Nature made lake Všejany is located on the village boundaries. An outdoor concrete reservoir with water from a well is at disposal there. The area has a very soothing nature character with plenty of fauna. A beach-sand play-field for foot volleyball and food stand included.
Nature made lake in Benátky nad Jizerou, Mělnická 35 at the winter stadium. A 25x13 metres swimming pool with sand-filtered recirculation is at your disposal. 1.60 metres deep all across the pool. Plenty of green fields for relaxing, food and toilet facilities included.
