Festival Bang! is an annual event held in Portugal dedicated to the celebration of Bang!, an imprint of Edições Saída de Emergência which publishes some of the most popular Fantasy, Science Fiction, Alternate History and Horror books in Portugal. With a catalogue of more than 250 titles, including the best-selling books “Game of Thrones” by George R. R. Martin, Bang! has introduced beautiful and strange imaginary worlds to a new generation of readers. This year’s edition will take place on the 28th October, in Lisbon, at Pavilhão Carlos Lopes.

Regarding the program, there will be cosplay, an extraordinary art exhibition on the work of Edgar Allan Poe, music, comics, games, book panels and autograph sessions. In our first edition, we are delighted to welcome Anne Bishop, New York Times Bestselling author of the Black Jewel series as our 2017 Guest of Honour. Join us in celebrating the spirit of Bang!
