Whether it’s electro-swing, hardcore, or techno, there are tons of DJs you can groove to at the festival.
Throughout the years, Beats For Love keeps changing its stages to host the number of performers selected for each year.

In 2018, Beats For Love invited Galantis, the Swedish DJ and producer duo, famous for their hits No Money and Peanut Butter Jelly. It was also Galantis’ first performance in the Czech Republic.
