WE DECLARE WAR ON QUEUES published 1 year, 2 months ago

Our new FULFILLMENT service we have informed You about recently is a part of our strategy to elimite waiting queues to enter the festival area. We still have in mind the events of last year's festival Wednesday and so we are implementing strategy to get rid of the queues. Apart from the fulfillment service that will check-in lots of people at home, we are doubling our capacity for swapping with one extra tent with the same overall capacity we had available last year. On top of that we're gonna learn from problematic issues we encountered the last time so the queues won't happen again.

We're now approaching selling out of our VIP CAMP, so VIP CAMP 2 is being added to the e-shop as of now. Based on numerous inquiries we also added party tent option to our VIP camp but since these are taking a lot of space and we don't generally want them, the price will be corresponding to a large 6 person tent. Next thing we need to adress based on frequent queries is the parking, we are completely sold out and have no extra capacity at our disposal. Last notice is a good news for travellers from far who don't want to carry their own tent, we have now added a service to our eshop where you can order a tent be picked up at VIP camping reception.

RUNNING ORDER, LINEUP CHANGES AND WARM-UP PARTY published 1 year, 2 months ago

We now bring you our running order, we’ve just made it available in the SCHEDULE section on our web. Now to line-up changes, unfortunately we were forced to seek replacement for AEON but we quickly found very appropriate one in HOUR OF PENANCE. The same applies for PROTECTOR who will be replaced by ARTILLERY, making their BA debut in their 35 years long history. We can also announce that PROTECTOR will make their BA appearance next year. To our utter disappointment MORBID ANGEL cancelled the whole European tour due to passport issues. We’re doing our best to find a proper replacement but given the short notice the options are limited. Last band to leave our roster on last minute are SOEN, on the other hand our last minute acquisition are UADA from Portland.

Last but not least, good news for those of you, who plan to party in Josefov since Tuesday 8th August, we will hold an official warm up party on a Red Bull Tour Bus close to the check-in tents at the festival main gate. Live bands will be on from 6PM till 11PM and the line-up is HENTAI CORPORATION, LOCOMOTIVE, ČAD, MORKHIMMEL, HUMAN HUMUS in this particular order.

THE KEEP - AMBIENT LODGE published 1 year, 1 month ago

Our noise ambient scene: THE KEEP - AMBIENT LODGE will host 11 live performaces + several DJ's. Among the artists will be:

We are excited we were able to get first class replacement of the dropped out MORBID ANGEL with their Earache gold era labelmates CARCASS! We always try to find the best possible replacement, because lineup is number one priority. Another big news is concerning the schedule, few changes were applied to the stage times, so please CHECK THE RUNNING ORDER OUT! Sadly we now also need to find a proper replacement for WALLS OF JERICHO. We will do our best to find act that will match for WOJ stage intensity.


We’ve now launched CASHLESS section on our website. You will find all necessary info in regard of the cashless system used at BA in this section and we strongly recommend you to go through the FAQ document found at the bottom of the page. This document will clarify everything you would need to know. Also you can now set up your cashless account and start loading money in it, so you can avoid all potential queues to charge your wristbands on site. For more continue to

Beware, your cashless accounts from last year were deactivated and you need to set up a completely new account for BA 2017!

Importatnt notice is concerning users of FULFILLMENT service. If you ordered this service, you cannot register your ticket, you need to wait for your wristband to arrive and register your wristband. Wristbands are shipped today and everyone should get theirs during the first week of August (you’ll get further instructions via email). The only changes for other visitors are abolition of the virtual tokens (prices are now in Czech Crowns - CZK) and abolition of the actiovation fee from last year. We also have to issue one warning notice regarding re-selling e-tickets, at this point some tickets will be invalidated while being swapped for the FULFILLMENT wristbands, so we strongly recommend you not to buy tickets from anywhere else than our eshop.

Regarding box office tickets, the price was set to 2350 CZK (94 EUR), however these will be available only if there are any tickets left after the presale is over. Since the presales have already breached 92% of our capacity, we need to repeat that there won’t be any single day tickets available. Also concertning ticket sales, the FULFILLMENT service will invalidate all tickets swapped for wristbands so beware of second hand tickets, we cannot guarantee validity of tickets bough anywhere else than in our eshop and from our official distributors! Concering sales, services like hotels, VIP camping or secured parking are already hopelessly sold out but do not worry, there is always the free campsite and free parking in town available.
