The sixth edition of Nouvelle Prague, the music conference and showcase has ended and the organisers are already sending invitations for the next year. Save the date in your calendars for 8th – 9th November 2019 when you can again enjoy a varied conference and music programme, interesting guests and advice to help you to navigate the music business.
From our point of view, this year’s edition was one of the most successful and organizationally demanding years with a record number of performing artists at the showcase and international and local music professionals participating in the conference. The conference was absolutely sold out which makes us really happy and motivates us in preparing the next year. We believe that education and professionalisation of the music scene is the step in the right direction. This is also backed up by the fact that the focus of the most prestigious music show Eurosonic Noorderslag 2019 is on the Czech and Slovak Republics, and we are honoured that the selected musicians were officially announced at Nouvelle Prague, Márton Náray, Nouvelle Prague programme director, sums up the few past days.
Eleven Czech projects – Bohemian Cristal Instrument, Circus Brothers, Floex & Tom Hodge, Hellwana, Lazer Viking, Lenny, Manon Meurt, Mydy Rabycad, Pipes and Pints, Thom Artway a Zabelov Group – will represent the variety of local scene in front of four thousand experts and five tens of thousand of music fans at the Eurosonic Noordeslag in Groningen, The Netherlands.

- Personality of the Year – Petr “Kužel” Blažek
- Press of the Year – Full Moon Magazine
- Venue of the Year – Kabinet Múz
- Border Breaker Award – Please the Trees
