THE AVANTGARDE'S OPINION THE BESTS OF THE XX FESTIVAL OUR OPINION ABOUT THE XX EDITION OF THE LARGEST MUSICAL EVENT IN OUR WORLD, THE FESTIVAL, AND ITS PROTAGONISTS Music is the leitmotiv of our world from the first The Avantgarde Magazine dedicates its third day of the first year. Virtually the entire edition to reviewing the present and the future population studies and works with the goal of of the festival, and to speaking with the great becoming a world star of the music industry... protagonists of the twentieth edition of the or, if not, being billionaires in the same industry event. making records, operating clubs or organizing world tours to artists of all existing genres .

She has walked the concerts by the best musical bands in the streets, the festival grounds and its world, we have also had events and activities surroundings and has enjoyed the experience for everyone. to the fullest. PAGE ONE | THIRD EDITION


THE XX POP FESTIVAL IS OVER! After four years of waiting and many weeks of preparation, contests and activities, the XX Pop Festival is over. We were really looking forward to the festival, as Rome XIX and Ezmirna have remarkably met expectations. Ephesus Festival Venue, Izmir's festival grounds, has become a place of enjoyment, party and fun for a few weeks of top-notch music. The local band DaVinlys, led by Ayça Brennan and Norman Harvey, prevailed as the best group of the event. While the second position went to AEONIAN - a New York band - and the Turkish band Valyrians completed the podium. by Adrió Súria i Talarn PAGE THREE | THIRD EDITION

LANDMARKS OF IZMIR And, on the other hand, if your intention was to enjoy the Festival breaks visiting beautiful places and taking a breath of fresh air, in Izmir you must have had a great time. Halk Plaji (Public Beach), Saat Kulesi (The Clock Tower), Konak Square, Agora Open Air Museum or Basilica of St. John are just some of the beautiful monuments that this city offers us, and that leave us tremendously amazed. Due to scheduling problems, we were unable to meet Edvin Rockford, Mayor of Izmir, but we can echo his statements to the press after the festival ended: “When I was told that Izmir would be the venue for the festival, my heart was pounding, playing nice background music, I called my friends and my wife, whom I had hyped for months, and shouting: \"WE HAVE BEEN SELECTED TO HOST THE! FESTIVAL!\" I screamed. I ran like crazy from one corner of the house to another.” It is the dream of any mayor, to bring the most important event in the world to his city, and we can say that Izmir (and its government) has lived up to the expectations generated. PAGE FIVE | THIRD EDITION

Izmir XX has had a large number of protagonists, not only bands and artists: also community representatives and volunteers who have made possible the organization of a first-class event, with many contests and complementary activities. THE KEYS OF THE FESTIVAL by Maya Parsons - English Executive Editor of The Avantgarde The XX Pop Festival has already ended, and More than 200 people have taken it has left us a great number of part in the Festival, and thanks to protagonists.

BEER, JOINTS, SEX, MUSIC AND PARTY ON! Popmundo Festival XX is a long-awaited While the site was surprisingly colorful and event that took place in Izmir. With a huge fun-friendly, I enjoyed seeing everyone mix of music, famous bands, wild fans, and a having fun and passing beers and joints variety of activities, it was set to be the which made the festival’s atmosphere event of the year! It was not kids friendly inviting, too inviting actually! Who can say no though, so to everyone who brought their to stoned friends and drunk strangers? kids, shame on you! I’m kidding of course… or I know I won’t! am I? VENUE AND CAMPING The XX Pop Festival took place at the Festival grounds in Izmir. The site itself was mesmerizing and joyful and so many people were welcoming and helpful so I knew It was going to be great from the first glimpse! PAGE SEVEN | THIRD EDITION

What was exciting for me was the festival tent that you could buy and just chuck it down and make it a warm mini home for as long as the festival goes. It was a great idea to invite people over to enjoy a cup of coffee (or beer!), music, delicious food (don’t get me started on those yummy Baklavas) or something something secret (AKA Doing the no- pants dance). THE FESTIVAL AND THE MUSIC The Festival is in the end a music festival and this year it had a GSG lineup and there was something for everyone, from Jazz to Punk to Heavy Metal! The list included DaVinlys, Guns seM’ Roses, La La Land, The Smashing Pandas and I can go on forever. Since it was my first festival, I didn’t know what to expect but I know now that I had a blast, it was epic Ş əa n d D a V i n l y s w a s j u s t b r e a t h t a k i n g . bnem’s glorious voice, Ayça’s incredible dance moves, Çiçek’s heart-piercing-beautiful violin tones, and Erik’s guitar performance were on point which made everyone hyped and chanting for more!

MY EXPERIENCE AT THE XX FESTIVAL GOD SMACKINGLY GLORIOUS! I enjoyed every minute of every day and I’d do it all over again if I had the chance! What’s not to like? Beer? ya ah! Food ? hell yeah! Joints? oh com’on! Sex ? I’ll leave that to myself Music? I’m all for it! So yes! Expect to see me at the next festival! With love, Maya Parsons PAGE NINE | THIRD EDITION


THE AVANTGARDE'S SPORT EDITION TENNIS SEASON IS OVER We started the year talking about the Pro Tennis Association, and we end it the same. The tennis season comes to an end, leaving a large number of protagonists, trophies and awards. The Avantgarde writes about it. by Corinne Bhacon PAGE ELEVEN | THIRD EDITION

I PTA SEASON IS DONE! +60 PARTICIPANTS, 14 MEDALS AND $130 MILLION IN PRIZES The first season of the Pro Tennis Association, the largest international tennis competition, comes to an end after 7 weeks (49 days) of continuous activity. The PTA Tour has passed through seven cities, five located in America and two in Europe. More than 60 different tennis players have competed week after week, handing out a total of 14 medals, 56 awards and $130 million. Numbers that have never been seen in tennis, and that demonstrate the motivation for athletes to be part of a modern and generous tennis association. For the first time in decades, we have been able to enjoy the best tennis in the world for a whole year. International athletes, from all continents and of all ages, have encouraged a very popular sport such as tennis, and many young people have been able to start their professional careers in the sport of racket. In this edition of The Avantgarde, we summarize the highlights of the world tennis season. We published the Top-10 of the PTA ranking, the Top-8 of the highest paid tennis players and, in addition, we interviewed Mathias Skrunes, the presumably best tennis player in the world and number one in the ranking for four consecutive weeks.

Without a doubt, the rivalry between type of discrimination or requirement to be these two tennis players will shape the future of the PTA. Both have occupied the first two part of the Tour (just being over 16 years old), places in the ranking throughout the year, and we will see if other athletes such as we have seen very young players compete Caesare Costarella, Edward J. Vaughan or the Valdéz siblings (Max and Camilla) can with other much more veteran and storm the throne. experienced players, such as Camilla Valdéz, the 58-year-old Mexican tennis player, who won the gold medal at the Nashville Open. Without a doubt, Mathias Skrunes - another 46-year veteran - has been the athlete of the year. He has reached four finals, and has achieved three silver medals and one gold. He started the year losing two finals in a row, and closes it as number one in the PTA ranking. PAGE THIRTEEN | THIRD EDITION

A: First of all, thank you for coming all the way to Tromsø. Welcome and pleased to receive you and all the audience. Of course not, I consider myself as a player with depth commitment to my career and to training. Being ranked as number one is a plus, but is not all. What gives a real meaning is having fun, and enjoying every every game. Q: I have seen in the living room the gold medal of London, and the silver of Rio and New York. Reaching a single final in a Major is very difficult, so reaching all three in the same year should be a practically impossible feat. How did you do it? A: As I said before, all is about training and focusing on the game. Studying each player and a bit of intuition. Once you got basic information of every player, is easy to make a plan for everyone. Sometimes brings good results, sometimes don't. PAGE FIFTEEN | THIRD EDITION

After that the mayor resigned. I knew that I would be a good mayor and could help the city heal, help rebuild it from it's turbulent beginning. M: Do you think you accomplished that? P: Partly. After my term we had a terrible, thankfully short lived, mayor. After him we had David Kuehl, Pascaline Foulquier, Paul Vaughan, that's a good set of mayors to have. Pascaline was my Treasurer, David was my Chief of Police, Paul was named after me. They were good without me but I think that era of good governance was one I brought in. Of course it's not just mayors. Your dad was Treasurer in that period, Alina was Vice Mayor, although your dad, Alina & Paul were both a little after my time. \"NY SENT SOME DOCTORS TO HELP US GET THINGS UNDER CONTROL\" ELECTED AS MAYOR OF MONTREAL M: But obviously you did end up going for elected office again.

Anne-Laure Bouleau Sempre que tenho algum tempo dentre os meus inúmeros afazeres que invento para UMA GARRAFA DE não cair na rotina, eu pego o jornal para ler VENENO X UMA os classificados. Juntamente com com as notícias publicadas, os anúncios que eles me SOCIEDADE DOENTE trazem, refletem bastante o comportamento e a necessidade da sociedade no momento. Não vim aqui falar sobre barganhas de itens comuns, nem de valorização de itens antes banais ou de queda brusca de outros até ontem caríssimos. Fato que inclusive levou alguns investidores à falência. Estas são notícias que todos nós sabemos serem comuns de quem lida com o mercado de especulação monetária. Nada novo por aqui. O que venho tratar é de um assunto um pouco mais sério e que considero merecedor de maior atenção por parte de todos os que lêem os jornais e dos que não o fazem também. Eu me refiro a busca cada vez mais frequente por garrafas de veneno e do absurdo número de pequenos comerciantes deste produto que traz um lucro irrisório, mas faz um estrago enorme na vida de muita gente. E ANTG R Uma pessoa coloca um anúncio em busca de H V D um frasco deste, num momento de angústia T E e desespero. O comerciante vê ali uma A oportunidade apenas, não pensa sequer na A possibilidade de ter alguém sofrendo do outro lado.

E tudo isso G O para quê? Obter uma renda de vinte mil em média? Uma vida vale isso?! UTR PAGE TWENTY FOUR | THIRD EDITION

É importante ressaltar que nem todos cobram por isso. Alguns mandam a garrafa de veneno de presente, fazendo a pessoa ver que talvez o único ato de boa vontade direcionado a ela, seja uma oferta de algo que tire sua própria vida. Estas pessoas acham que estão fazendo um favor em oferecer sem cobrar nada. Mas nem procuram saber o que originou aquela triste procura do anunciante. Há também os que pegam o telefone e ligam para a vítima (vou chamar desta forma porque é o que são ao meu ver), não para dar algum apoio. Elas ligam para pedir seus bens materiais, dizendo que a pessoa não vai usar mais. Então que pelo menos não desperdice o item. Eu fico aqui pensando na falta de lisura desta pessoa. Pois se propõe a ligar para um suicida sem oferecer nenhuma palavra de carinho e ainda pede a ele que doe sua coisas como um último ato de generosidade. Além de não oferecer ajuda alguma, ainda faz chantagem emocional para piorar tudo. Por último há os bons samaritanos, cada vez mais raros hoje em dia, mas que ainda lutam por um mundo onde todos se ajudam. Eles ligam para o suicida e dedicam um bom tempo de sua própria vida pra \"resgatar\" aquela pessoa. Compartilham seu mundo alegre e sua energia positiva para que ela note que o mundo ainda é um lugar bonito, fazendo isso de forma completamente desinteressada. Os bons samaritanos no máximo desejam conquistar um novo amigo se o destino assim o quiser. A maior satisfação para eles é ver aquela pessoa renascer emocionalmente e se reintegrar a sociedade de forma alegre e produtiva. Deixando de ser um pessoa sombria e anônima para ser cheia de vida e amiga de muitos. Você que leu até aqui e se pôs a pensar no assunto ou já viveu algo parecido, está convidado para uma carta resposta. Podendo ser a favor ou contra a minha opinião. Creio ser um assunto polêmico e merecedor deste debate. PAGE TWENTY FIVE | THIRD EDITION

It was during this year that The Avantgarde saw the light and when we began to receive feedback from readers. We close the year talking about the Festival, the most important event in our world. We toured Ephesus Festival Venue - Izmir's festival grounds -, and we also do a review of the Pro Tennis Association season and interview Mathias Skrunes, Athlete of the Year for The Avantgarde Magazine. But we can't close this edition without thanking all the people who collaborate every day so that our magazine - and everyone's - continues to create content and continues to be fun for our readers. To them, who dedicate part of their time to reading our pages, we must also thank them for their support. For them, The Avantgarde Magazine was born, and for them it is all our work. Special mention from The Avantgarde Magazine for Enrique Ferreira de Medeiros, creator of the official logo of the XX Festival, and for Erim Serim, creator of the official slogan. Two X's, just one winner! PAGE TWENTY SIX | THIRD EDITION
