The Divadlo pod lampou (Theatre below the Lamp) was founded as a live music venue in 1990 within the framework of the programmes of the Municipal Cultural Centre. Its establishment was a response to the need for space for non-commercial cultural activities in music, film, and theatre, but especially to give exposure to emerging music groups, lesser-known genres of music, alternative culture and activities related to this type of culture.
