Between the Fences (Mezi ploty) 2019
Bohnice Psychiatric Hospital, Ústavní 91, Praha 8 - Bohnice
- Sat 25. 5. 2019 – Sun 26. 5. 2019
The 27th Mezi Ploty (Between the Fences) music and theatre festival will take place on the last weekend in May. Visitors of the Bohnice psychiatric hospital where the festival takes place every year will see about 160 performers on 14 stages (including very famous Czech and Slovak bands e.g. Mňaga a Žďorp, Tomáš Klus and band, Wohnout, Vypsaná fixa and others). The event was established to bring to people's attention -- with the help of music, theatre and sculpture -- the topic of mental disease, often demonised and ignored in a society that requires its members to be superhumanly fit, healthy and intelligent.
The psychiatric hospital can be best reached by metro C line to the Kobylisy metro station and then by buses no. 177 and 200 to the Katovická station. One-day entrance fee is CZK 350, while tickets for the whole weekend cost CZK 600 (sooner online).
