The Comic Festival
All Your World Festival Information
Ever been looking for one site which will provide all the festival information you need wherever you may be? That's the absolute plan with thecomicfestival.com, who will be sourcing some of the best reporters worldwide to report on those essential occasions. Be it art, music, literature, comedy or cinema - you name it - we'll be your go-to source for all the best advice and listings. So if you like some real culture in your lifestyle, welcome and we hope you enjoy the adventures to come!
It may sound surprising to younger readers, but music festivals were not always very widely attended. Some of the biggest global festivals nowadays started up with only a few hundred attendees! So as well as reporting on the annual regulars, expect to find quality reviews of up and coming new destinations. Eastern Europe is massively on the ascendency - especially for electronica and rock - but of course, we'll report on smaller, and more particular events worldwide. Expect to fond some Kanye with your country footstompers!
European Film Festival
One festival that is going to feature every year is the European Film Festival. Currently rotating host cities on an annual basis, they nowadays showcase not just European movies but also all kinds of international cinema. There are dozens of small-scale film festivals across Europe throughout the year, so it that happens to be your number one lifestyle choice - we'll review and recommend the very best. Unlike mainstream agencies and broadcast networks, we are totally independent. For example, we aren't worried about advert revenue for Hellboy 3 or whatever! So what you read is a very real and independent appraisal every single time.

What we love about this site so far - and where it is going to grow - is the emphasis on not just one style of 'culture'. Recently, we were lucky enough to visit Edinburgh, Scotland, during the festival month. There were not just hundreds of venues serving up comedy, but also dedicated sub-festivals for cinema, live performance and a surprising amount of pop-up activity. We really hope to see what thecomicfestival.com can deliver for next years events, as without a hands-on and up to speed guide you always wonder what you are missing. Thanks, and best luck for the future!

Having been attending everything from Burning Man to BREEDNFEST over the years, this site has inspired my buddies and me to really think about saving up for an international group trip next year. Great as the domestic scene is, who wants MTV style when you can find full-blown 'real raves' within the cost of a cheap air fare? Holland (Pinkpop) or maybe even Hungary's Sziget is looking like the real up and coming names for a bunch of old style ravers to enjoy.

While I love attending comedy festivals they are still nowhere close to what you'll find in the larger music events. Sure, some of the best comedy is found on the smaller stages but if you want variety and a way of laughing away for a few days, this has been a wonderful resource. It not only describes/blogs comedy and culture lifestyle but also speaks with authority on who to look out for and where to find them. For us, this has become as geeky as to place pins on maps when our favorites are going to be performing in the same city/destination or wherever. Awesome and best for the future.
