arrowNew Festival Format: Letní Letná Light / Information for Lexicon Ticket Holders

Information for owners of  Letní Letná 2020 vouchers

The validity of all already purchased vouchers will be automatically extended until September 1, 2021. They can also be used for Letní Letná Light.

Information for holders of tickets for the Lexicon performance

The Lexicon performance will be presented in 2021. Current ticket owners can choose from several options:

  • You can keep the ticket until you receive information about the new show dates (the information will arrive no later than March 2021). Then you can trade your current ticket for a new one.
  • You can transfer the purchase cost of your ticket to a voucher which can be used for another performance (possibly at Letní Letná Light).
  • You can request a refund for the ticket.

We'll be happy if you decide to support the festival by not requesting a refund.
