The concept of Let It Roll came into being in 2008 after the success of underground drum’n’bass nights and raves of the same name in industrial halls around Prague. The first open-air festival was an unexpected blast with more than 3000 grateful bass music lovers dancing in the forest close to city of Pardubice.
The stunning boom in following years led the festival to expand to neighboring countries Slovakia and Poland where drum’n’bass and bass music scene shows a big appreciation to international producers and DJs recently followed by local new-blood talents. In 2012 there are already 3 open-air and 3 indoor Let It Roll festivals in three countries with stunning line up covering all spectrum of drum’n’bass and dubstep producers and live bands.
The leading event is “the original” Let It Roll Czech Republic by glorious Oplatil lake and sandpit close to city of Pardubice and 100kms to the east of Prague. Although the nature is not major reason why more than 10 000 people are expected to come this summer. Neither it is the stunning line up that compares any UK monster bass music festival incl. Camo&Krooked live, Qemist live, Flux Pavilion, Caspa, Dirtyphonics live or A.M.C.
The reason why it is essential date and inevitable event for serious bass lovers is unprecedented and electrifying atmosphere that is hard to experience anywhere else. Insatiable crowd appreciates every break and bass drop and performing artists don’t hesitate to call Let It Roll one of the best drum’n’bass festivals especially for that frenetic vibe they experience.
Proximity to Prague, beautiful natural site, big line up and special atmosphere brings Let It roll into the first league outside UK as Hideout, Outlook etc.
However, there is one more card up their sleeves. The price doesn’t exceed 30 Euros (25Pounds) for 2-day pass at any of the threesome. These events seem to give the Croatian gigs a run for their money.
