Unique comic festival Artistic diversity at Nextcomic
It’s impossible to imagine the festival scene in the UNESCO City of Media Arts without it: every spring, the Nextcomic festival in Linz captivates visitors with national and international comic art in all its forms.
The festival is the only such event in Austria and one of the most important German-language comic festivals. At Nextcomic, visitors are able to experience comics as a varied medium: as well as exhibitions, the event also showcases animated films, street art, readings, workshops, lectures, children’s books, school projects and much more besides. Parties and concerts (known as “nightlines”) are on the programme too.
Comic fans can discover parts of the art exhibition throughout Linz during the festival – venues include the OÖ Kulturquartier (Festival Centre), the Ars Electronica Center, the Grotto Railway on Pöstlingberg and the Moviemento art house cinema.
