30th Helsinki Comics Festival

30th Helsinki Comics Festival

The 30th Helsinki Comics Festival will take place on 28th–30th of August 2015 at Lasipalatsi Square and nearby venues in Central Helsinki, Finland. Our themes this year are zines and Asian comics art.

Helsinki Comics Festival is the largest comic-related event in Finland and Northern Europe. The festival is free of charge and the programme consists of interviews, lectures, discussions, exhibitions, workshops, performances, competitions, signings and evening events. The event keeps growing and last year we counted 25,000 visitors.

The festival offers a fair and a platform for publishers and comic artists from Finland and abroad. In addition to the main exhibitors' area we organise Small Press Heaven, an alternative fair of zines, smaller publications and young artists.

The main festival venue tent and the Small Press Heaven are located at LASIPALATSI SQUARE (Mannerheimintie 22 - 24).

Mbar's outdoor stage will be Helsinki Comics Festival's official music corner which offers up a selection of diverse bands, singer/songwriters and comics DJ´s. If you need a moment to chill out during your festival visit or you're just up for some good music, Mbar music stage is the place to be! Welcome all!

Helsinki Comics Festival is organised by Finnish Comics Society.
