Charity auction: Hippotherapy is Magic
Like almost every brony convention, Czequestria always features a charity auction! This year, we will be supporting an equine cause – Hippotherapy, which is a form of equine-assisted therapy. A close contact with the animals positively affects patient’s motor skills, coordination and balance. Haven’t you ever thought hugging equines could be magical?
Anypony can donate an MLP-related item to the auction and all the money will go to support the above mentioned magical thing!
And as every year, the charity auction will be run by famous Perrydotto in action&fun style!
For more information (also how to donate) please check the Program – Charity auction on our website.
- Crowdfunding –
a piece of treasure from Ancient Equestria
Czequestria is already around the corner, but still has not revealed all its hidden treasures. Many of them had long been hiding in dusty halls and locked chests. Now is the time to bring all the artifacts to the light of day!
If you want to take away a bit of the ancient world for yourself, don’t hesitate! Treasures are usually small-sized and not everypony will eventually get them. And as in the whole history, time plays (and will play) the main role.
You can get the artifacts of Ancient Equestria from Crowdfunding that just started!
Last day for Patrician tier ticket sale! Afterwards its just the Standard entry (Citizen tier) and there is at least 1 more guest to announce, but likely more ;-)
DJ Delt∆ – dance music for partying hard!
Better stretch your hooves in advance – DJ Delt∆ aka Joël is returning to Czequestria party and certainly won't leave his House and Techno beats at home!
DJ-ing since 2009, he's been playing at many brony events in Europe, including GalaCon, Everfree Encore and since 2015 also at Czequestria. His recent move from Germany to the Netherlands did not stop him from playing his favorite music to share and enjoy it with everypony who likes to party hard!
Check his music mixes at Soundcloud and... get ready!
Accommodation - solo, together & few tips
We added a few tips for affordable accommodation near Czequestria venue.
And because renting the accommodation together is usually cheaper than solo room, we also added a new channel where you can look for roommates - you can ask also on Czequestria thread on bronies.cz board, but for some visitors it is a bit impractical.
So... we opened the Discord server for Czequestria attendees where you can not just look for common accommodation, transportation, but also to see where the pre- or afterparties take place, or to post your (more or less) crazy photos and videos from Czequestria itself.
It’s about time to introduce first of our Guests of Honor!
Elley Ray is known to the brony fandom as a voice of Mistmane, one of the Pillars of Ancient Equestria and the Element of Beauty, but her talent reaches much wider and further! She has performed in over 300 theatrical productions with hundreds of on-camera series and movies to her credit and voiced literally thousands of animated series, animated movies, commercial campaigns and games. During her more than 40-years-long career, she has traversed the stages, film sets, television and radio studios.

Guitarist, vocalist, and producer from the south-east coast of United Kingdom. Since late 2011, his heavy metal and pop-punk music with a light electronic and acoustic flavor became popular among many bronies all over the world!
His debut album Rediscover was released in November 2013 and to this day he performs at conventions in the UK, Germany and the US – this year, he will join us at Czequestria
Check his YouTube channel for a great music and let him know to @PWhateverer on Twitter how you like it!
Long time, we've been silent... and now it's announcement time again!
Fan made music is the integral part of brony fandom – from original songs to remixes, musicians of all genres let the melodies bloom and fly to an listening ever-thirsty crowd. And we are proud to announce more musicians coming to Czequestria 2019!
ILLUMNATION – a music to turn the darkness into light
ILLUMNATION is an acoustic dark-folk band founded in late 2015. Starting as a solo project of Velvet R. Wings (vocals, harp, flutes, songwriter and guidance) quickly became a duo when Andy Feelin (bass guitar) joined and together they performed at many brony music events.
Most probably, you already met them: both Velvet and Andy were members of Przewalski’s Ponies and visited most of the brony events in Europe, including Czequestria. Despite their original band ended it’s activity in November 2018, their passion for music did not stop with end of that era. ILLUMNATION brings the darker corners of the world to the light through the words and music.
For this year Czequestria, they join with Soul Strings (acoustic guitar) and we welcome them all at Saturday evening concert. The feelings in their strings, brought to you on the wings of shadows, will surely enlighten you.
Give them a warm welcome and enjoy their music!
>>> Ticket sale now open! <<<
Sorry for delayed message - the Senator tickets are now about 75% sold out already!
FYI convention, panels, booklets etc. is all in English language ;-)

Czequestria date and place announcement
We hope to see you all (again) and hope that the date works for you! =)
Time is racing towards 2019 when the 4th Czequestria will take place. Nevertheless, planning and efforts to estimate what will come next has been an integral part of our daily routine for quite some time. Our lives are getting faster - thanks to the modern life style and our past as well as civilizations are quickly getting buried under the overwhelming amount of new information.
How did our great civilizations, which disappeared in the course of history, used to look? What did their inhabitants look like, how did they live and what would the world of Equestria look like in their fantasies? Historians and archaeologists have tried to answer some of these questions for a long time… we will try to answer the last one with our entire Czequestria team:Theme for Czequestria 2019 is the “Ancient World”!
If you wondered how ancient Rome, Egypt or other great civilizations in Equestria universe looked like and you want to experience a bit of their glorious past, come to Czequestria 2019! Together, we’ll travel to the ancient Equestrian times to experience their everyday life as we – and the ponies of the current Equestria – know it from various legends and stories. The whole weekend filled with fun, fans, guests and entertainment of all kind - starting with traditional MLP themed LARP - is waiting for all Czequestrians!
When: 23. - 25. August 2019 (LARP on Friday, convention itself on Saturday and Sunday)
Where: KD Krakov, Prague, Czech Republic
Detailed information will be revealed in near future, stay tuned on official announcements on
- @Czequestria Twitter
- CZ/SK bronies Facebook
and of course here in this thread too. ^.^
In case of any questions, please let us know here in this thread, via Twitter @Czequestria or send us an e-mail to [email protected].
We are looking forward to see you in Prague!
Just a few days left until Czequestria, so it’s about time to tell all attendees as much as possible about the next week events.

Special guest from the machine realm: Sweetie Bot project
We are excited to announce the attendance of a team behind the real life pony robot – the Sweetie Bot project! These guys are building a robot that looks and acts like an Equestrian pony.
Don’t miss the panel presentation where four team members: disRecord, mutronics, Renha and Zuviel, will tell you about the latest news of the project and answer the questions from the audience.
They will also bring a working prototype, so don’t forget to come to their table to give a brohoof to Sweetie! Here are few words from them:
«Sweetie bot Project is a small team of enthusiastic brony engineers from Russia interested in ponies and robots and working together on the concept and realization of Sweetie Bot.
Our mission is to take advantage of high tech magic to bring ponies into life in the robot form. We believe that in future humans and pony robots will be able to be friends and live together in peace and harmony.»
Be sure to check the http://sweetiebot.net and YouTube channel for the latest news and updates! Also the article about their current progress has been recently published on Equestria Daily.
Trotting here from distant land: Przewalski’s Ponies
If you’ve already visited Czequestria at least once, you will surely remember the brony music band which comes to visit us every year and always brings beautiful songs to every pony at the con. This year we are proud to announce that Przewalski’s Ponies are returning once again! Now we’re looking forward to not just to listen to their songs, but also towards the reunion with our long-time-no-see friends.
Przewalski’s Ponies – Andy Feelin (bass guitar), 4/3 know also as Chord (guitar) and Velvet R. Wings (harp, vocal, percussion) – will present a new acoustic feature with Celtic harp. Old songs, new sound! Also Velvet R. Wings will perform her new songs by her solo project ILLUMNATION.

The first “Czequestrian” from far, far away land!
As with anything complex, MLP:FiM was created by people of all walks of life. And thanks to these folks we’ve been able to experience the joy of this wonderful & mesmerizing TV show. And apart from the voice actors, it’s the script & lore writers that create the actual story for those characters. And even though there is now more than handful of those that have been involved with this show, there is only one that is quite more close to Czequestria than any other…
Without further ado, it is our utmost pleasure to welcome book & script writer and a person, that’s definitely no party pooperM. A. Larson
Sadly due to these duties he won’t be able to participate in person (as you could’ve guessed from the picture bellow), but you won’t be spared of his voice as he will call in via Skype.
