Brussels Comic Strip Festival
For all comic strips fans, this festival in Brussels is for experts and amateurs, young and old. Something for anyone curious about the art.
It has recently moved to Gare Maritime at Tour & Taxis.
About the Festival
Major publishers set up shop at the festival, and hundreds of comic artists and authors will be selling and signing their books.
It is an “animated” festival (not just about what’s on the page), where musical performances and illustrated lectures are featured.
This includes unique performances where a creator will complete murals, paintings and stories live before an audience.
The conference section has journalists, artists and fans gathering to debate issues, expand on the art itself and discover what’s up and coming in the world of comics.
Also on offer: film, video and board games, readings and creative activities for children where they can produce their manga or uncover the secrets of the craft.
Jam Hotel centrally in the Sint-Gillis area of the city, where guests can enjoy a seasonal heated outdoor pool and rooftop bar.
Great rooms with flat-screen TVs and free WiFI, as well as access to a games room (table tennis, arcade games) and fitness centre, make it an easy choice for a pleasant stay.
