Živan pravi pank festival

Zivan makes a punk festival

 
Živan ist Punk-Rocker, Poet und Lebenskünstler und kommt aus einer ärmlichen Bauernfamilie. Während der letzten fünf Jahre hat er jeden Sommer in seinem Heimatdorf ein Punkfestival veranstaltet. Und jedes Mal hat er dabei Geld verloren. Nun macht er das Festival zum 6. Mal. Wie er das wieder schafft, bleibt ein kleines Wunder und wohl auch Geheimnis des kleinen serbischen Dorfes. Dieses Mal will Živan sogar international werden: Er bringt eine Band aus der Slowakei zum Festival. „In one hundred years, it’ll be Woodstock“, sagt Živan.

Zivan is a punk rocker and a poet who comes from a very poor peasant family. Every summer, for the last five years, he organized a punk festival in his native village in Serbia. And, he always lost money on it. This is the sixth time he makes a music festival, and Zivan decides to make it an international one – he's bringing a band from Slovakia. „In one hundred years, it’ll be Woodstock“, says Zivan.
