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.

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 TWO | 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 FOUR | 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 SIX | 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 and DaVinlys was just Ş əb 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 ! PAGE SEVEN | THIRD EDITION

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 EIGHT | THIRD EDITION

THE MAYORS' Miles Lacey, Mayor of New VIEW PAUL SCHREIBER York, interviews Paul Schreiber, former Mayor of Montreal. Both star in the second edition of our segment 'The Mayors' View'. Paul is one of the most beloved mayors in Montreal's history, and he spends a pleasant afternoon with us. I'm Miles Lacey, mayor of New York and subject It was faint at first but it soon turned into the sound of a sax solo backed by just the tightest of the first The Mayors' View interview.

Of course M: Tell us a little about your time before politics... if I had moved to Rio you wouldn't be interviewing me now. P: I'm from the North East of England and when I turned 16 I moved down to London to make a living PAGE TEN | THIRD EDITION as a musician. I was a blues singer for a while but things just didn't click for me. One day on tour the bus radio lost signal. After a few minutes of static fading in & out a new station started coming through.

But M: Were you in London much or were you doing the musician when it did it just felt right straight away.

I wanted to win of course but once I didn't that was the end of my ambition for elected office. PAGE ELEVEN | 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 PAGE TWELVE | THIRD EDITION office again.

They mismanaged things, or maybe just ignored them, to the point our Doe health was atrocious. Really truly abysmal health. It was so bad we ended up with an outbreak of the plague. The literal plague. And still the government did nothing. I organised some citizens to help try and manage things and New York sent some doctors to help us get things under control.

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. Em quais tipos de horror sua Learn portuguese alma tem vivenciado a ponto de querer desistir de tudo.

E tudo isso G O para quê? Obter uma renda de 20mil em média? Uma vida vale isso?! UTR PAGE SIXTEEN | 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 SEVENTEEN | THIRD EDITION
