Ahh Prague. If you are following my story – you probably saw that I was in Prague attending the same festival (Transmission) 2 years ago. I absolutely love it! I don’t attend a lot of parties – maybe one or two a year. This one is kinda special to me. i love the people there, the whole light show, energy, music and the vibe. Usually I dislike large cities, but Prague has its charm. It’s a combination of old and cultural vs. new and modern. It is really easy and cheap to move around and the prices for renting apartment for few days or weeks are very affordable.
It was 3 people visiting Prague this time – my partner and I and our friend Tadej from Slovenia. I rented the flat near O2 arena – so we’ll have easy access on the main night of Transmission event. We settled in the flat and went out exploring.
“Transmission is a spectacular dance event that creates through a combination of electronic dance music, high quality equipment, special effects, live acts, and special scenography an unforgettable spectacular experience. Transmission distinguish it self compared to other regular dance events by its exclusive theme related story line which guides the visitors on a journey through out the whole night and by it’s spectacular laser and light show and huge Funktion One sound system. To introduce the artists, special tailor made ‘show movies’ and visuals are created by the Dutch award winning VJ team Vision Impossible. Those intro movies are presenting the theme and story line and each intro movie leads to a new sub category of the theme. For these ‘Show Movies’ the lights, lasers and special effects (fireworks, co2, flames, i.e.) are pre-programmed in advance and running on time-code. Each sub category of the theme is supported with it’s own tailor made visuals, has subsequently adapted acts (if included) and has its own specific main light color selection.
Transmission is recognized as one of the top indoor dance events world wide and attracts every year thousands of visitors world wide to it’s home base, the o2 arena in Prague. Since 2014 Transmission is expanding abroad and the first international edition took place in the Slovakian Capital Bratislava and currently Transmission is organized on 3 continents, Europe, Australia and Asia.”
As previously mentioned – I love this party! Can’t really describe the felling of attending – but would recommend you to go and explore/feel this for yourself. I am not into trance music, I like soulful music, house music with lovely vocals. But this is not an ordinary trance party – I can guaranty you that.
So once more – Prague has hosted us very well. I enjoyed the stay – my friend Tadej visited it for the first time and was very impressed by its homeyness. People here simply feel welcomed, the atmosphere is light and easy, in this time of year (November) it definitely feels kinda romantic.
There was this one thing that came to my awareness tho – and it wasn’t the minor thing. It was the dynamic in relationship between me and my partner (we’ve been together for 5,5 years). I noticed – that our energy between us wasn’t flowing as usual in this fun trips of ours. I saw the side of him that I don’t really like – the side of him that I wouldn’t even tolerate around my friends. The vibe between us seemed down, fragile, like we can’t even understand from which point our opinions are coming from. I am the kind of person – that is very adaptable, easy going, don’t like conflicts and am striving for harmony. And there were a lot of moments – where I saw my partner behaving like a teenage boy, angry at situations and circumstances that were out of his control and directing that energy towards me. I must say that that was a big realization for me – where our relationship stands and an insight of where it is going to.
It may just be, that we won’t make it as a couple to that 6 years period.
