MAGIC FESTIVAL 2018

Dear Friend of Magic,

It is my pleasure to invite you to the Czech Republic for the 2018 UH Magic Festival.

The festival will take place in the city of Uherské Hradiště, May 11 – 13, 2018.

We are the largest magic convention in the Czech Republic and we are looking forward to having you with us! The 2018 UH Magic Festival will be a great magical adventure for all of us.

 

MAGIC FESTIVAL 2018

We are delighted to announce that the UH Magic Festival is again upon us. In only seven years of its existence, our festival has earned the reputation of being the most prestigious magic convention in the country. Many international performers have been a part of our Magic Festival throughout the years. Performers from Austria, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia, Germany, France, Spain, Serbia and Argentina have performed on the stages of our convention.

This year’s guest lecturers and performers are the absolute best in their fields.

THE FAT BROTHERSDani DaOrtiz and Miguel Ángel Gea from Spain, and Christian Engblom from Finland, will present their three man show on Friday night, and each will have his own lecture in the following two days.

Another great star has accepted our invitation this year – from Sweden, the master of misdirection and recipient of the Academy of Magical Arts Creative Fellowship, Tom Stone.

And last but not least is the Czech Republic’s own Ondrej Psenicka, who fooled Penn & Teller, in 2017.

You will see The Fat Brothers, Tom and Ondrej perform, lecture and share their time with our attendees throughout all three days of the convention.

 

A very special part of the 2018 UH Magic Festival is the 1st official Cardistry Competition in Czech Republic. The contest is co-organised by popular Czech youtubers Dejf & Petr and Ondrej Psenicka. We are lucky to have Fatty Dabs, from Jordan, and Alexey Loschilov, from Russia, also known as Kriod, to take part in the jury, and jam and hang out with all the attending cardists.

There will be a wide range of accompanying events during the weekend. Magic on the Square (a special performance for children at the main city square), stage and close-up competitions and a Magic Gala Show on Saturday Night, accompanied by the competition results. The above mentioned guests are going to be joined by other international guest performers in the gala show. It will be hosted by Czech TV hosts Petr Rajchert and Veronika Poláčková. A social evening with banquet, music and special surprises will follow.

The magic marathon continues on Sunday morning with more lectures and a Q&A with our international guest performers. The last event of the festival is a public performance “Magic Sunday,” in the afternoon.
