27th Monteparadiso Festival

27th Monteparadiso Festival

DC Rojc, Pula, Croatia

We are more proud than ashamed (sorry) to announce, yes for real, the 27th edition of the Monteparadiso Hardcore Punk Festival!

The begins in 1992 when a bunch of then kids squatted an abandoned fort called Casoni Vecchi in the neighbourhood of Vidikovac (commonly known by older locals as “Monteparadiso”). The reason was the lack of cheap places where we could listen to hardcore punk without being hassled for not drinking at the bar. There was a war going on, there were no jobs, no industry or tourism like today, and because of that, there wasn’t money… but that wasn’t a great concern for us kids. Our purpose was about constructing a different reality. Of course, there were older generations of punx in town, but we had a different approach at the time.
