The story begins in 1992 when a bunch of then kids squatted an abandoned fort called Casoni Vecchi in the neighborhood of Vidikovac. The reason was the lack of cheap places where they could listen to hardcore punk without being hassled for not drinking at the bar. There was a war going on, there were no jobs, no industry or tourism like today, and because of that, there wasn’t money… but that wasn’t a great concern for us kids. Our purpose was about constructing a different reality. Of course, there were older generations of punks in town, but they had a different approach at the time.

The first small local festival took place in the summer of 1992 in the fort Casoni Vecchi, and that festival is reckoned as the first Monteparadiso Festival. Not to show off, but it must be said, they made something out of nothing and in a few years time their local festival became a quite well known spot on the international hardcore punk map. Since then, the Monteparadiso Festival, became the driving force of their small, yet strong local hardcore punk scene. 

The festival stayed true to its initial concept ever since its launch. This is why you will have the chance to see some of the legendary bands from the international Hardcore Punk scene.

This year celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Monteparadiso Festival that will bring bands as: Stalag 13 Band, The Mild, Sick Crap, Absorber, Vitamin X, BREAKOUT, Open Wounds and many more.
