    Sometimes it feels there is nothing more to look forward to and that pony meetups are all in the past. However, our team has not given up yet, and despite everything, we’re still out there working. The atmosphere of big events is something we are all missing and want to experience again.

    So far, we can promise you one thing for sure:

    We are planning Czequestria 2022 and the theme will be “Sun vs. Moon”!
    Last time we travelled through time, now we’re thinking space! You can look forward to an event filled with contrasts. Will you side with the light or the darkness? Or do we need a bit of both to restore the balance? We’re already excited to see your takes on the theme in costumes, art, and anything else you choose to bring to the event. Remember, the sky’s the limit!

    [​IMG]
    Will you join the noble Solar Empire or the forces of the New Lunar Republic? Choose wisely!

    (author of the emblems is Emkay; used with the consent of the author)
    Anyway, what is the deal with the strange “202X” name? What’s the future like for Czequestria? So the story goes like this…

    What’s the situation like with our crew and the con itself?
    The team has grown by 4 more members and there seems to be no stopping us now! We’ve not spent last year resting on our “laurels” but actually the opposite: 8th Winter Karaoke Party (2nd largest CZ/SK brony event after Czequestria) has taken place, although online for the very first time, with great help from the new crew members!

    When and where will the next Czequestria take place?
    We are aiming for the last or before-the-last August weekend (as usual – Friday till Sunday), so the usual spot like in previous years. We are not looking to move Czequestria to any other term at the moment.

    However, due to the current pandemic situation, we cannot guess if it will happen this or next year. And although the chances for this year’s Czequestria are slowly diminishing we are not giving up on it and are working as if it would happen nonetheless – worst case we will reuse all the work for the following year. The final decision on when Czequestria will take place will be broadcasted in due time based on the overall situation.

    As for the “where”? Well, that one is easy, in Prague of course!

    Are there any plans to change the concept of the Czequestria compared to the previous years?
    Nooope (thanks, Big Mac). The next Czequestria will be in the same shape and sound as the 2019 one.

    Soo… when will you open registrations for staff, contributors, musicians and vendors?
    That depends on whether the Czequestria will take place this or the next year. Hence the “X” in the title – until the variable “X” is not known we can’t disclose or launch anything. So watch any (or all) of our social media channels to catch that information as soon as possible!

    Are you seeking financial or any other help due to the situation?
    Thanks for the offer! But we are good in both ways – financially thanks to our reserve (planned exactly for purposes such as this) as well as staff-wise thanks to the new joinees. Nonetheless, if you wish to support us we do have a transparent donation account (IBAN: CZ9720100000002000534394; BIC/SWIFT: FIOBCZPPXXX) through which you can help us to cover the costs of running the organization.

    Planning the summer already? We have something for you!
    [​IMG]
    The situation is slowly beginning to change for the better, and like most of you, we are making more serious plans for the summer. And even though we are not out of this mess yet, we want to share something important with you:

    If Czequestria takes place this year, it will be the last Friday + weekend in August!
    (27–29th August 2021)

    We still believe that we will meet together in person at Czequestria this year, maybe in smaller numbers and with a program adapted to the current situation. We look forward to seeing you all!

    Unknown X for element 202X has been solved!
    [​IMG]
    The announcement long awaited by everypony is finally here! We could give you a long obscure description, but in this case, a straight and fair answer is the best, and probably also the expected one:

    Due to the current pandemic situation, Czequestria 202X is postponed to the end of August next year.

    During the last month, the chances for a fast return to normal were rising and we believed in Czequestria happening this year, even if with some restrictions. But last days made it worse again and traveling across the borders seems to be following the same trend soon. It was a hard decision, but even if it made us sad, we believe it’s the right one. Czequestria preparations continue. Let’s keep trotting until it’s safe to meet together again!​

    We are looking forward to seeing you in late August 202X, where X=2!

    Volunteer registration and program contributions are open!

    Despite hiding in the shadows for a longer time (recent past events kept us busy elsewhere), Czequestria 2022 is alive! Preparations are already in full swing: planning, counting, arranging venue and guests, saying hi to new members of the organization team … there is always something going on.

    Preparation is one thing, but we will need much more during the Czequestria weekend – therefore, as every year, we are looking for volunteers (in Czech con jargon “staff”) who will help us on the spot with the preparation and running of the event itself. Do you want to join? Awesome! Whether you have experience from the past or want to try volunteering for the first time, we are glad that we got this together! Information and registration for the volunteer team can be found on the page Join the staff team.

    No one, however, goes to a convention to look at the organizers In addition to meeting other fans and friends, Czequestria is primarily a space for content creators, not only guests of big names but everyone who contributes to the brony community. Whether you are an artist of any kind, a game developer, or have something interesting prepared for the brony audience, there is a space for you too! If you want to present your work at Czequestria, or organize a workshop or any other thematic activity, be sure to write to us via the page Participate and perform at Czequestria!

    In the meantime, we are still working on the ticket sale and vendor registration. We will get back to you soon with more news!

    Tickets for Czequestria 2022 on sale soon!

    Compared to previous years, do you also think, that there is a suspicious silence around Czequestria? On the outside, this has been the case – until today. The events moving around our lives in the last months were a bit too much for all of us.

    However, we can no longer hide in shadows, and it is time to start uncovering all the secrets this year’s Czequestria has ready for you. First, the most question asked: tickets.

    As every year, we have prepared three types of tickets in the current event theme – you will find the complete overview, prices, and corresponding rewards on the Tickets page.

    Tickets sale will begin on Wednesday, May 4th, 2022, at 19:30

    Ticket sale for Czequestria 2022 is now open!

    It took a while but waiting for tickets is over! To get them, just open the Tickets page and click on the "Buy" button next to the name of the specific ticket tier (if you do not see the button, reload the page).

    The sales system has undergone many improvements since the last time: for bank transfer payments, you can use also the QR code (for payments from a mobile banking app), which is displayed after a successful registration. This works both for payments in Czech crowns and euros.

    Although we prefer payment by bank transfer (incl. SEPA payments) due to low fees, we have added the option of using payment cards (provided by Stripe gateway) instead of PayPal. The main reason is PayPal's high transaction fee – if you need to use it for payment, contact us by e-mail at [email protected].

    Also, if you view our site on a mobile phone, it should be much clearer than before, and the same applies to the ticket system.

    Anyway... the
    >>> Tickets <<<
    is the page you are looking for now!

    Vendor applications are open!

    On a long run, only a few bronies would be satisfied with MLP items, which you will find in every second toy store. After all, official production is aimed primarily at a different age group. And conventions are one of the places where pony fans can easily access My Little Pony themed art and crafts, which are not commonly available and made specifically for fans. Here you will find everything from original posters, mugs, and pillows to huge plushies.

    But all the amazing things that make a fan's heart beat faster, don't just appear out of nowhere - it is offered by the sellers and exhibitors who will arrive at the convention. If you are interested in a vendor or exhibition table at this year's Czequestria, now is your chance!

    Vendor applications and detailed information can be found on the Participate - Vendors or exhibition page.

    Robert Cullen – visit from the world of “MLP: A New Generation”

    As My Little Pony Universe recently expanded into a new environment, characters, and plot, so did the circle of those who give the world of Equestria the look as we know it. We are therefore honored to welcome to Czequestria one of the MLP 5th generation team members, who is none other than Robert Cullen, the director of “MLP: A New Generation” and the founder of the Boulder Media animation studio!
    [​IMG]

    Although his name might not sound very familiar to most Bronies, the fifth-generation pilot is definitely not his first encounter with the MLP world.

    Check out the Guests page for info on where it was and how he further participated in the pilot film of the fifth generation of My Little Pony.

    Prince Whateverer – heavy metal & pop-punk from the Moon

    Guitarist, vocalist, and producer from the southeast coast of the United Kingdom. Since late 2011, when he released the “Beyond Her Garden” cover (originally by WoodenToaster), his heavy metal and pop-punk music with a light electronic and acoustic flavor become popular among many bronies all over the world! His debut album “Rediscover” was released in November 2013.

    In recent years, he has performed at many conventions in Europe, the United States, and also at online brony events. He decided to take full advantage of this year, so we can enjoy his music live at conventions all over Europe, including Czecquestria.

    Check his YouTube channel for great music and let him know on his @PWhateverer account on Twitter how you like it!

    Verča Cosplay - when a costume is more than a hobby

    Costumes and cosplay give each convention an incredible atmosphere and are also a way to take on the role of your favorite heroes, at least for a while. Who wouldn't want to try it at least once!

    Whether you want to know what custom costume design for game studios or Netflix looks like, looking for cosplay tips, or you want to try to create your very first cosplay, be sure to visit the cosplay panel by Veronika Matějková at this year's Czequestria, followed by a thematic workshop!

    See the Guests - Verča Cosplay page for more info!

    Last day for program applications!

    Today is the last day for any panel, workshop, concert, or any other activity in Czequestria's official program!

    Whether it's a quiz for participants, an art workshop, CCG free play, or a game in a nearby park - whatever reasonable and pony you can think of :smile: Czequestria is a space for your ideas too!

    Friday LARP - everything you need to know

    At every MLP con, you will find something unique, and typical for the event. The most distinctive program piece at Czequestria is Friday's all-day MLP-themed game, taking place in the area of Prague: for one day, the participants in groups will take the role of characters from the MLP world and go on a journey to... but no spoilers, come and see for yourself!

    If you have never participated in such a game and you are not sure what to expect (or you are just curious), be sure to check out the Czequestria 2019 LARP video or take a look at photos from Czequestria in previous years.

    Detailed information about Friday's program can be found on the Program - LARP

    Last week of sponsor and cheap tickets

    Czequestria is getting close really fast now (less than a month), so the end of sales for Eclipse (sponsor), Constellation (super-sponsor) and Spark (standard at a lower price) tickets is almost here! After 1.8. (next Monday) only "Last minute Spark" tickets will be available - these are the same as "Spark", but for a significantly higher price.

    If you still don’t have your ticket and are planning to attend, want extra rewards, or save on the entrance fee, don't wait until the last minute and buy your ticket now!

    Thanks to everyone who decided to support Czequestria! Because after three years of waiting, it’s happening again!

    Time plan, accommodation and transportation

    The following overviews will help you plan your participation at Czequestria, or at least save time searching for necessary information:

    • Time plan – a general overview of the program of the entire event
    • Transportation – how to get to the event and back, how to use public transport in Prague
    • Accommodation – tips on available hotels and hostels nearby

    BlackIceMusic – bouncing vibes to the party!

    What kind of party would it be without a DJ whose music can stir up the energy in the party hall! We are introducing the first of those who are about to tune you up to the true party mood. (If the music styles mentioned below don't ring any bells, check them out on the Internet).

    BlackIceMusic has been making electronic music since 2014, originally inspired by Big Room music. Later, he branched out to Dubstep but then returned to focus on Melbourne Bounce and now Future Bounce. You may know him from his tracks "The Fuff", "Jinxies", or more recently, "Memory".

    At Czequestria, he will perform a DJ set with Melbourne Bounce, Future Bounce, House, and other festival genres!
