This page was originally created by users of the Punk Rock Group to provide punk travellers an access to the local scenes. So for your convenience you find a list below that consists of links to sites where you can find out what to do or who to see at the place you're going to.

Let's keep this page as DIY as possible, remember : punk rock is not for sale! (And another important thing: Keep Myspace out of punk!)

If you can help, please do. If your country isn't yet in the list, just create a new paragraph, or even a regional sub-chapter.

Bulgaria

According to those people :

" OK, so the situation in Bulgaria is very different than in the other European countries.

There are no squats and autonomous centres!

There are problems with Nazis in cities like Sofia and Plovdiv, so you have to be very aware of this, especially if you're with a mohawk and dress like a punk.

Varna was much better, but the only DIY punk club was closed by the police two months ago and there is nothing happening right now there.

Bulgarian and Serbian are the most untolerant to gay people societies in Europe. 80% of Bulgarians are homophobes and some kind of nationalists. Punk shows are two types: completely apolitical or nazi-friendly. The hardcore scene is into tough guy macho beatdown or NYHC stuff without political messages. Very patriotic, sexist and homophobe.

There are environmentalist with a hippie attitude, some rastas and drum&bass fans that are cool people, but don't have any relevant political culture. There are bikers and they have a NGO called Bikevolution, they're cool people, but normal looking people with prejudices on punx with mohawks etc."

Unfortunately, my short experience there confirm this more or less :(

Israel

Tel Aviv

  • http://rogatka.me/blog/?m=201105&cat=3 small diy-place with shows, screenings, discussions; satursday 4€-vegan lunch. only place in TA with Taybeh-beer (from Ramalah); unfortunately non-smoking inside. Yitzhak Sade-street way down; next to it is:
  • "Salon Mazal", the info-shop place. focus on animal rights, antifa and anti-occupation, queer&gender issues. big but random library with books of 40 years.
  • the "yellow house": squat (without legal title) by nihilist punx, might be dangerous to visit... it's down in Yaffa next to Ha-Hagana Park, follow street (Ben Yehuda?)
  • ask trustworthy people about the "red house" and handle the information decently; it's a house share of punx/activists but it's not explicitly an open political project.
  • chaos-punx are said to hang around in front of Diezengoff-Mall.
  • in small groups it's safe to sleep on the beach, there are even containers for BBQ-fires.

Jerusalem

  • uganda: artsy cafe/pub-style place with records and comics near Yaffa-street, sometimes small shows. expensive beer.
  • Lifta: you wouldn't believe it: an abandoned arab village! five minutes walk from Central Bus Station. Punx and bums have been crashing in there since decades. permanent stay is impossible because of men (from the park authorities and orthodox neighbors) removing and burning furniture and belongings frequently... the village consists of appr 100 stone-houses (mostly ruins) and a clean water pool frequently visited by orthodox males (drinking water quality). it's possible to have your camp-fire; bring your hammock and keep the place clean. for the history of this village whose population fled in winter 1947/48 can be found in detail on wikipedia.
