Daniel Sloss

International stand-up comedy superstar Daniel Sloss will perform in Prague in June. The famous Scottish comedian, actor, and writer, who rightfully belongs among the world’s top stand-up comedy performers, will perform his brand new solo show HUBRIS at Prague's Forum Karlín on 3 June. His performance is provocative and razor-sharp. No topic is taboo for him and his intelligent arguments provoke the audience not only to laugh but also to think. Daniel does not censor topics or language. The long-awaited performance will be in English and is suitable for visitors over the age of sixteen.

Daniel Sloss liked to perform on stage already as a teenager, but he didn't enjoy playing serious stuff and also pretending to be someone else. For the last ten plus years he has concentrated mainly on stand-up comedy. Daniel prefers the quick feedback from the audience and also the fact that comedy brings people together.

Daniel Sloss became the first stand-up comedian to sell out major theatres such as the London Palladium and AFAS Live in Amsterdam. He has sold out six New York solo off-Broadway seasons, appeared on U.S. TV’s ‘Conan’ ten times, and performed eleven times at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival where he was one of the headliners.

His previous tour "X" took him all around the world to 40 countries with 300 performances throughout Europe, the UK, the U.S., Canada, Australia, Hong Kong, and Japan. "X" can now be seen on HBO in U.S. and Canada.

Daniel’s previous two Netflix specials "DARK" and "Jigsaw" are streaming in 190 countries and 26 languages. His spring 2021 Australia tour was the biggest live tour across genres in April and May on the planet.

Daniel's debut book, "Everyone You Hate is Going to Die," is about relationships and was published by Penguin Random House in October 2021.

According to the New York Times, Daniel Sloss is "Dirty, sweet and clever." You can find out in person on June 3, 2022. Tickets are for seating only and can be purchased through Ticketmaster.

Ólafur Arnalds

Award-winning artist, composer, and producer Ólafur Arnalds returns to the stage after the release of his monumental album Some kind of peace and will perform at Prague's Forum Karlín on June 29, 2022. 

Ólafur has been captivating audiences with his performances all around the world. He invites you on a journey to present his most personal and raw music to date, played live on stage for the first time ever. His riveting and often powerfully emotional performances are an exercise in intimacy, a space for artists and audiences to share their vulnerability through music.

His tour in support of his 2018 album Re:member was met with high critical acclaim. Ólafur has played to hundreds of thousands of fans at over 150 concerts, selling out some of the world's most famous concert halls such as the Royal Albert Hall, Elbphilharmonie and the Sydney Opera House.

Ólafur and his fellow artists and musicians perform an immersive show that brings together his older, current and new work. His pioneering Stratus self-playing pianos create unexpected harmonies and surprising melodic sequences on stage that make each performance unique.

Some kind of peace is an album about letting loose and is remarkable for its openness and honesty. Arnalds has once again crafted a genre-defining album that serves as a much-needed moment of reflection. “If there’s one thing that people the world over have learned in the months of the pandemic, it’s that for all our best-laid plans, chaos will always win. All we can do is control how we react to what life gives us.”

In light of all that's going on, Ólafur Arnalds' concerts will be all the more meaningful because he brings a unique calm in the midst of chaotic times, and not only by blending ambient electronic music with classical strings and piano. 

The Australian Pierce Brothers return to Prague with their show on June, 9, 2022, at MeetFactory. In Australia, the twins Jack and Pat are known to play concerts that will blow your mind. The brothers, who started out as buskers on the streets of Melbourne, have also dazzled Europe and Canada with their incredible energy. So, what is the musical secret of these always positive and energetic singers, guitarists and drummers? It lies in their indie folk-rock sound orbiting the same path as John Butler, Xavier Rudd and Mumford & Sons, and catchy songs that are quite easy to build an addiction to.

Of their last album, 2021's "Into The Great Unknown," they said, "The time that we had off from touring during the lockdown, while difficult, made us laser focussed like never before on the writing process... Whilst it was an unwelcome break in our lives, it helped create the best album we've ever written!"

Pierce Brothers also filmed a clip for the single "Brother," featuring them and their older brother, in which footage from the present alternates with nostalgic shots from their childhood.
