Julius Arnost Wilhelm Fucík (18 July 1872 – 15 September 1916) was a Czech composer and conductor of military bands.

Fucík spent most of his life as the leader of military brass bands. He became a prolific composer, with over 300 marches, polkas, and waltzes to his name. As most of his work was for military bands, he is sometimes known as the "Bohemian Sousa".

Today his marches are still played as patriotic music in the Czech Republic. However, his worldwide reputation rests on one work: his Opus 68 march, the Entrance of the Gladiators (Vjezd gladiátoru), which is universally recognized, often under the title Thunder and Blazes, as one of the most popular theme tunes for circus clowns.
