Maybe you can tell how to get to Letnany from Praha hl. n. to Letnany and from Letnany to Florenc after concert? Please help. Official account of Stones Praha 2018 said, that gigs on Letnany ends everytime at 22:30. I have the bus on Florenc on 0:20. I hope that concert will end at right time and I won't be late for bus. What do you think, Prague people?

It is all on Metro line C, just check the underground map. You are on Florenc in 15 minutes. Getting into the underground might take you more than one hour though, it will be overcrowded

Normally this wouldn't be a problem, but it will take some time to get out of the venue and into the station. If you want to be sure you will get to Florence on time, you should position yourself before the end of the show so that you are out quickly. You should make it alright in two hours. If something happens with the metro, you can try Uber or taxi, but it will be expensive.
You can also walk a few minutes to catch a tram to the centre.
Also, in total emergency, you can walk to florenc in approx 80-90 minutes.
But I think that you'll be fine.

Advice for those who will need to get to the underground fast - leave the FOS (and also Pit) sector through the left entrance/exit (PVA). If you take the right one (don't get fooled by the fact that the exit is called "Metro"), you will have to go around the whole site, it will take you much longer and you will get caught in much bigger crowd. As I wrote, from my previous experiences the site is always very well organized (except the cashless system on the AC/DC concert was a huge fiasco, but I didn't buy anything, so I didn't even notice, this time with the wristbands we all have a reason to worry though), but getting out takes a lot of time.

Please Advise: I am still unable to purchase ticket. I do have someone offering to purchase one for me. Question about Wristbands:
If I am unable to "purchase a ticket with my card" how will I be able to load credits to a RFID Wristband? Can You use "cash/euros" to load value to the wristband or only a Credit or Debit card?

This was asked on the official Facebook page. We should be able to load the wristband with credit/debit card and cash.

If you want to be sure or you have other questions, I suggest you youse their email, they are very quick to respond.

Thank You - noticed a 2 pm gate time for the show, would be a long day without food/beer/merch if one is not able to load them with cash, assuming if they do not accept my card on website, there may be issues at show as well.

This needs to be confirmed for Prague but here is how wristbands we explained at Outside Lands. The only place they took cash was for food, but that is supposed to be changed at this festival for 2018 too.

[www.sfoutsidelands.com]

The venues like this for a few reasons.

1. It eliminates managing, collecting and securing cash.
2. Vendors typically pay a percent of revenue and paying the vendor 95% of their revenue brings in more money than having the vendors provide 5% of cash receipts.
3. If the average person leaves 1 Euro, dollar, GBP etc on their wristband that is 80,000 in pure profit.
4. Reduces counterfeits since wristbands harder to reproduce.

Any statement it makes for a better fan experience is just hogwash aside for not having to carry cash. As far as not bringing in food and drink, let them take away what I try and bring in. If they are taking my food they are not finding my recording equipment.

Yup, that didn't last long - did it ? I just happened to notice this morning that the Lucky Dip button was still lit up on rs.com, and when I clicked it ... it put me through to ticketpro.cz and I could have bought 2 Lucky dips. I had them in the basket. But because I had two already, I didn't bother buying them. But that was why I posted the link ......

Perhaps a subtle indicator of a slow selling show? As we all know, tickets will 'miraculously' become available for all sections as the clock runs down, though I don't doubt the venue will be pretty full by showtime.

I'll throw in another transport iDEa. I used this Co. in Barcelona in the fall, to and from the airport and was very happy with them. For about the cost of a cab (or maybe even less), you'll have a driver waiting for you at airport. I'll be using them again for Prague. I have no relation/affiliation with them - just throwing it out there for anyone looking for a good transport option to get to and from the airport (or any other local sightseeing), that's a step above an Uber, but not at Limo prices. Can be nice when visiting a foreign city, especially if you're tired from travelling, to have a friendly local waiting for you.

Site will give you an estimated cost if you put in some details.

Well today is my day of redemption. I was finally able to purchase a ticket.

After a long and detailed email to RS.com this morning, around 2 hours later I received an email from Ticketpro.cz, admitting/apologizing for the fact they had been "blocking payments from Canada, the Caribbean and South America"...but they had now changed the "settings" so that I could make a purchase.

Grateful the battle is over, but wow, what we do for a ticket sometimes...
