The accommodation at PopMesse 2023 is realized in collaboration with Mendel University again. The dorms are comfortable, affordable and situated within a close vicinity of the festival area. A shuttle bus to the accommodation will be provided. The accommodation is in the form of two-bed rooms with shared sanitary facilities (WC and showers) and kitchens in the hallways. The price per bed per night is 600 CZK with breakfast included. Attention! The capacity is restricted to 600 slots, it will be expanded in case of greater interest!
For ecological reasons it is recommended to arrive at the festival via train or bus. All visitors with a PopMesse 2023 ticket have a 30% discount for interstate public transport via České dráhy to and from Brno. The discount will be applied regardless of previously applied discounts. That adds up to a 50% discount for students, InKarta holders and such.
The discount code will be made public at the beginning of July. The discount can be applied by entering the discount code in the České dráhy e-shop.
