Dear bands, agents and other involved,
as you might imagine, we receive a lot of offers for shows by artists like you or ones you represent. While we read all your e-mail, it’s not always possible to answer all of them.
MeetFactory has a music hall with a capacity of 750 people. With very few exceptions, this is the only space we do music events in, has a live music PA setup, light fixtures, stage, etc. Unless for big events, we don't promote any live shows during the summer too.
No bands want to play for an empty venue and no visitors like to go to an empty club. The minimum amount of people for which the venue has the right kind of atmosphere *and* works economically is around 250 people, but more is better. If you usually play for smaller crowds, there are some great smaller venues in Prague, that can host your show: Klub 007 (capacity 250, mostly hosting hc, rockabilly, ska, etc.), Cafe v Lese (capacity 200, indie & folk) or Cross Club (capacity 350, electronic, dance), Punctum Krasovka (capacity 150, experimental) to name a few. For all-night dance parties and DJs, Ankali (capacity 400) is a nice venue.
As for opening slots, unless it's a tour package when the headliner picks their own support band, we tend to book upcoming local (Czech & Slovak) acts as a way to kickstart or support their careers and allow them to play bigger stage or crowd than they are usually used to.
Additionally, while we personally listen to all kinds of music, we tend to promote mostly indie/psychedelic-rock, dream pop, alternative hip-hop, singers/songwriter or electronica. If you’re playing other genres, you might get better chances if you work with a venue or promoter that specializes in your genre and can attract the right crowd for your show.
If you wish to organize the concert, private or company party or any other production yourself, please contact us regarding the arrangement of terms and conditions. We are open to your suggestions and needs.
Thank you and all the best with your music!
