Zine vendor Sticky Institute celebrates the joys of independent mags with the thinking person's answer to Woodstock.
Sticky Institute, Melbourne's staunch defenders of independent zine culture, have four huge days of entertainment lined up for Paper City, a festival celebrating everything in and around the joys of printed matter. If heartfelt, handcrafted mini-mags on any number of niche topics sounds like a riot, this is the event for you.
The opening night party at Yah Yah's on Thursday features underground rap/noise stars Brothers Hand Mirror with supports in the folk and indie vein, as well as a complement of DJs.
Friday the festival kicks off proper, with events all day at Sticky's underground Degraves Subway space, with a band t-shirt party and a split-zine launch among the day's lo-fi but high energy activities.
Then Sunday is the main event: a zine stall at Melbourne Town Hall, for all your zine needs. Get amongst it!
