The music experience in the tram was offered by student group KONJA Band from the Music Conservatory of Jozef Adamovič, Gipsy for President band and musicians Marek Lacko and Tomáš Sučik, who are known from The Voice of Czech Republic and Slovakia competition.

DPMK meant to use these activities to encourage people to travel by public transport, as quoted by TASR.
