Punk & comics weekend in HN!
First of all, an apology for all our readers out there. There haven’t been a lot of posts recently and we are fully aware that we were a bit lazy regarding that. A lot of work stopped us from putting new content here, although we were somewhat active on the social networks. In the last two months we were on three great comic festivals in the Balkan region, so we will get back on track during this month. And let’s start with the festival that was in April in Herceg Novi, Punk comic-weekend by Hercegnovski strip festival!
We were in Herceg Novi from 7th to 9th April, and it was a pleasure to see a great festival in Montenegro and the guys from HSF again! This time, the HSF team organized a festival honoring a music style – punk and combined it with music. A lot of new and returning festival visitors, guests and musicians were in Herceg Novi during this weekend.
The first night, the festival started in Djenovici with a music festival to warm-up the crowd. Fast Women and Slow Horses, Podosti and Hunting Souls were the supporting bands for the Croatia punk-rockers Psihomodo pop. I have to mention Walter Trono (a comic artist from Italy), taking the stage and rocking with Hunting Souls and Fast Women and Slow Horses.
The next day we were in Herceg Novi! Will Simpson, Rufus Dayglo, Walter Trono, Luka Cakic and Srdjan Ivanovic were handing out sketches, signing comics and hanging out with fans all day long at KINO, until evening hours when the party moved to the local Pub GOT. Even there you could get a sketch from Will (the drawing machine) and hang out in a totally relaxed atmosphere with these great guys. The next day the festival moved to Tivat (about a 15-20 minutes drive from Herceg Novi). It was a great move since the guy from the festival managed to set up the festival at main marina in Tivat where a lot of fans were eager to meet these authors. The festival was closed by the movie projection Sid and Nancy in KINO again, and as always hanging out with these great guests.
As always, Herceg Novi and Hercegnovski strip festival didn’t disappoint. This turned out to be a brief, but great getaway for us. There was music, there were comics and the super relaxed hanging out with great guests and visitors (basically, the trademark of this festival 🙂 )! More photos from the festival can be found in our Facebook gallery! Guys from Herceg Novi are already preparing for September and the 11th edition of their festival, so be sure to check out news about that on our website and their Facebook page! God save the comics!
