Program 

 

This year, Trolls & Légendes is under the spell of "Nordic legends". In de shadow of the cosmic tree Yggdrasil, Vikings, Trolls, bears and wolves will fear the swords of the Walkyries, under the all-seeing eye of Odin…                                                                                                                

No doubt that the visitors will have something to tell, draw, play and sing about. 

 

Games - Exhibition

Adrian Smith (uk)  

Adrian Smith was born in Sussex, a county south of London in 1969. When he left school, he entered directly  the world of work but he soon thought that there was something else in life to do. He began then to study graphic art at Goring-by-Sea.
On the advice of a friend, he decided to send a portfolio of his drawings to Games Workshop, publisher of the famous role-playing Warhammer and was hired. He became at 20 years one of their major illustrators and he  worked from the very first day on Warhammer and Warhammer 40000.
A year later, Adrian decided to resume his freelance career. During this period he produced covers for Toxic, Wizards of the Coast and Fantasy Forge, and worked for some time on the famous game Kryomek. He then realized that he had built a solid reputation in the world of freelance design but he started dreaming of Games Workshop after seeing the production of the some new artists of the studio, he came back to Games Workshop and spent there another year working.
His countless illustrations of warriors and extraordinary creatures made him an undisputed master of heroic fantasy. His drawings are published around the world in fantasy magazines such as White Dwarf, and his drawing continues to inspire illustrators, cartoonists and game designers.
He is also the author of the cartoon series BRÖZ, with Pat Mills in the screenplay, and Chronicles of Hate, a breathtaking black and white graphic saga in two volumes.
A selection of his paintings, drawings and sketches produced for Games Workshop, Black Library and Sabertooth Games was released in 2003 under the title The Art of Adrian Smith, a cult book but almost depleted. In 2008 Dark Fantasy released the Universe of Adrian Smith, a colored album in the form of a bestiary world of shadows.
More recently, he has collaborated on several major board games such as Conan, The Others: 7 sins and has created the whole visual universe of Rising Sun (released in 2017) and especially Blood Rage, where Vikings clans compete for The glory at the time of the Ragnarok in a world full of warriors, Vikings gods and creatures of Nordic legend (Fenrir, Giants ...). 

 

  

Adrian Smith is the guest of honor for the 7th edition of Trolls & Legends festival. He has given us the immense honor of offering us a sumptuous illustration for the poster of the Festival. Find it in the exhibition space as well as in the games area, where you can also admire the figurines made after his illustrations

Christophe Arleston (f)

Christophe Arleston (or Scotch Arleston) is a comic book writer born in Aix-en-Provence on August 14, 1963. He studied at the Marseille School of Journalism, graduating in 1987. He then worked as a journalist and responsible of communication. He made his debut as a comic writer for the Circus magazine (Glénat), then his first album, Manie Swing, with the publisher Alpen. He issued his first two series of importance, Les Maîtres cartographes and Léo Loden,  published in 1992 by Soleil. They were soon followed by the three volumes of Les Feux d'Askell.

As a prolific writer, Christophe Arleston multiplied his masterpieces in various genres, from fantasy to polar, from science fiction to history with usually humor as the common thread. His biggest commercial successes remained nevertheless in the field of Fantasy. In 2011, he signed for the first time a comic book script with his real name, Christophe Pelinq.

Music 

Wardruna (no)

Wardruna comes from Bergen in Norway and was founded in 2003. They are fabulous!
Wardruna makes  you travel back in time and plunges you 900 years ago, right into the daily life of a Viking horde. The group also signed the music of the famous TV ‘Vikings’.  Astonishing, extraordinary and utterly devious instruments such as trees, water, stones, torches ... Add to all this a song in runic alphabet and you get that total and powerful change of scenery!
More than just a group, it is a unique experience not to be missed under any circumstances.

For their first visit to Belgium, Wardruna gives us the immense honor of having chosen Trolls & Legends!
The 2017 edition will undoubtedly end up in apotheosis
 

     

 

 

 

Korpiklaani (fi)

A wild mix of folk and heavy metal from Finland. In Finnish, Korpiklaani (editor's note, Korpi for the intimates) means: Clan of the Wildlands. A whole program as we love it!
The themes the group most favor are boozy barbaric feasts,  gorgeous women  and Scandinavian forest legends,...
Would you not agree with them?!  Over the years, Korpiklaani has become a key reference in the world of metal music. This led them on international tours from Rotterdam to Vancouver... And for our greatest happiness: MONS  
 
   
 
 
 
 

 

Music 

Fantasy and music do have close ties, especially  with  folk, Celtic and metal styles but also with less predictable genres. Every day  the festival ends up with concerts.
For its seventh edition, we have  worked out a sophisticated program combining confirmed artists and discoveries.
This program, tailored just for you, is based upon three different themes: humor on Friday, pure rock on Saturday and folk on Sunday. Just come and enjoy 

   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friday 14th April

 

Troll Metal 1Friday, the end of the week.  We can finally relax and clear our mind with a festive  evening in view. It would be a shame to miss what Thor has brought us to hammer out our hectic life!  A program entirely devoted to good and kooky humor,  just the way we like it. Nothing but great artists!  Whatever  the huge gap between a Celtic fiesta, the "Cyber Steam Punk" or  the hilarious barbarism when "Fantasy" rhymes with " being happy"! What do you reckon?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Naheulband (f) 

A great classic not to be missed!  Honestly,  Trolls & Legends can ‘t do  without the Naheulband.  It would be like Thai cabbage without scampi’s, do you get the idea?
The band is an undisputed reference in the world of "Fantasy".  As Tolkien claimed in "Harry Potter against the elastic man": The silence that follows a concert of Naheulband is still Naheulband!  A legend with unalterable success that will transport you into a festive, burlesque and heady universe.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Magoyond (f) 

This explosive Parisian quintet defines his music as "Rock Zombie". A hybrid genre between the Steampunk and the French alternative rock of the 80/90ies  (Les Garçons Bouchers, Les Sheriff, Ludwig Von 88, ...).  A music with a strong scent of electricity and crazy humor.
Big pals of the Naheulband, those artists could even spoil us unexpectedly ... Wait a minute, I am just being  told  that a small jam session between the two bands is more than likely . Great! We say yes!
 
    
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Dolmen (uk)

They come from Great Britain which, as the name of the band suggests it,  is greater than Brittany, sorry Britain. These  mad druids are in charge of transforming  the "Mons Expo" into a new Stonehenge!  No need to say that you might lose your braccae. We are expecting an enormous Celtic fiesta! Be prepared and plan plenty  of barley beer. These Englishmen are crazy!
   
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Saturday, April 15

"Metal Rock " in general  and as whole has always been somehow linked to…, well no, actually, it has always shared  strong complicity with the Fantasy world. Sorcery, magic, fairies, elves ... are recurrent themes to this musical style. Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Manowar, Nightwish ... From the oldest to the newest, each of those artists has, at one time or another of their career, fantasized a prehistory universe where extraordinary creatures and beings would evolve. No wonder that Trolls & Legends offers on Saturday evening a musical program dedicated to friends found of metal.

Rastaban Replugged (b) 

Warning! This is for the Festival Trolls & Legends 2017 only! Those regulars of our Festival come back with a unique show,  just tailored for you, friends of Trolls. A full metal set for the very first time in their career, sparks will fly. When you know that their  "classic" style already provoked  unusual emotion ... Yum yum, we already salivate, we can’t wait.

 

 

  

Skeptical Minds (b)

Melodic and bewitched goth metal,. Active since 2002, the band (coming from Charleroi and Brussels) is definitely a safe bet. Six albums (yeap, no less!) and hundreds of concerts in Belgium and abroad. Skeptical Minds keeps on amazing us. Top level musicians, a singer who would drive mad a battalion of neurasthenic  fundamentalists ...  What an honor for the "Trolls & Legends Festival" to have them perform.
 
   
 
 
   

Ithilien (b) 

One of the most fashionable Belgian bands, hard rock trend, of the moment. Ithilien takes you on a journey of black metal, folk and Nordic / Viking traditions. Gorgeous sounds and atmosphere that even managed to enchant the Japanese public on a tour of "Eluveitie" in June 2014, when opening the concerts. Respect and Banzai! Trolls & Legends, that is where they just belong to!

 
   
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

Sunday 16 April

Reflection, introspection, as we are connected to the nature and gods.  Sunday will be mythological or will not be ... Let it be said, that is for sure!
A show dedicated to folk and acoustic sounds, slowly rinsing in power. To start with, nice Elven lamentations (be prepared, it will quickly turn into a uproar among Valkyries under amphetamine…),  to finish with - Viking songs. Four groups that will be our smugglers, taking us  from here below on earth to up there and far beyond. You will become the willing  hostages of a ghastly Drakkar, by Odin!
It is time for us, poor mortals,  to devotedly meditate!  Valhalla ... Here we come!

Acus Vacuum (b) 

These four robust guys coming from the Belgian Ardenne will  perform in blood and thunder. Pure and harsh pagan / medieval folk just like Bastogne, that small rogue Belgian village!
Music for insiders, mainly instrumental and played with such passion.  Completely hypnotic, martial  melodies whereas soothing  at the same time. Sorcery or magic? It's up to you ... whether you are fire or water, war or peace, Acus Vacuum will put you on your knees ... And you will ask for more!

 

 

 

 

 

Karolina Pacan (pl)

Karolina and Michel (respectively singer and guitarist of Skeptical Minds) will come to present their new project. Much more than a "simple" music album, Rusalka is a concept centered on Polish legends, which will also transport you into the graphic universe of Alain Poncelet. A surprising and exotic ballad.
 


 

 

 

Hano-ah (b)

A young singer and pianist from the area of Mons. An intimate atmosphere. An amazing voice, sometimes fragile (Tori Amos, Kate Bush ...), sometimes wild (Amanda Palmer, The Dresden Dolls ...), that will strongly make you fly higher than a fairy. Close your eyes, let her take you by the hand ... There we go, off we take ...

Comics Strip

 

For its 7th edition, Trolls & Légendes once again wears its most precious  jewelries and pearls.  Friday, Saturday, Sunday, during three full days, more than 30 authors will be at Trolls & Légendes to show and share their brightest bubbles with you.
Whether with ink or pencil,  in full color or black & white -Trolls, dwarfs, elves and dragons will be materialized on white pages, at your request, just for your own pleasure. You will leave the festival with an indelible gift in your favorite albums. Scriptwriters and cartoonists from Europe and  overseas will sign your comic books ... some of them in Belgium, not to say in Europe, for the very first time in their career ...

 

Check plan and schedules for more info.

 

Focus on our Belgian authors and Iberian talents

Spread over the 3 days, some authors either already well known either to be discovered, will surprise you with their talent. Olivier Grenson, Jérémy, Benn, Louise Joor, David Boriau, among many others, will give you all their time for an unforgettable moment.

Special attention is given to Spanish authors in collaboration with AC / E (Accion Cultural Espagnola). Kyko Duarte, Jesus Hervas, José Luis Munuera and Francis Porcel will demonstrate the culture of their beautiful country.

By Thor and Odin!

This edition without Thorgal and his various universes was out of question! Thus, Roman Surzhenko will draw his most beautiful vikings of all the legends of the North: Louve and Kriss de Valnor, nothing less. Emmanuel Michalak and Pierre-Denis Goux will show their Viking universe in their saga Aslak and Mjöllnir.

Trollen en Legenden

Our northern compatriots are not to be forgotten. Indeed, our partner "la librairie Bédébile" will propose different series in Dutch.

In addition, Fabio Bono will come to sign De Rode Ridder, the mythical serie in Batavian country. Fabio has taken over the serie with powerful talent maintaining the same great success after 250 volumes.

Several contests

Contests will be organized for the public queuing for autographs in the edition section. In collaboration with Dargaud, Glénat and Soleil-Delcourt, comics fans are bound to win nice souvenirs.

More information available at the information stand or here below

Alexander Vlahos (uk)

 

We are delighted to announce that Alexander Vlahos will be joining us at Trolls & Légendes in April!

Alexander cut his teeth in the realm of fantasy portraying Mordred, doomed to become King Arthur’s lethal enemy, in the British series Merlin. This memorable role, alongside Bradley James and Colin Morgan, has made him famous to both fantasy fans and the general public.

He has since then become the voice of Dorian Gray, and soon Hamlet, in Big Finish’s audio drama cds.

Alexander has recently been one of the major highlights of the original Canal+ series Versailles as “Monsieur”, Philippe de France, Duke of Orléans. After the international success of the first season (broadcast in Belgium on La Une), the next season is expected to be broadcast on Canal+ next spring, right before Trolls & Légendes takes place. The filming of a third season, which has just been announced, will then be in full swing, but Alexander will nonetheless come to Mons to meet his public at Trolls & Légendes festival.

Alexander will be present during two days and will take part in Q&A/autograph sessions and photo ops. Schedules are yet to be determined. More information will follow in the coming months.

Clive Standen (uk) 

 

Who better than a true viking as our guest of honour for the 2017 edition of Trolls & Légendes, whose theme is the legends of the North?

CLIVE STANDEN will be among us in the Mons region!

Prior to becoming Ragnar’s brother, Clive learned at a very young age to clash swords and fight in a variety of styles. He then became an actor and played the roles of Archer in the Robin Hood series, of Gawain in the show Camelot, and of private Harris in the cult English series Doctor Who.

Vikings, broadcast on History Channel, is the show that fast-tracked his career and raised him to stardom. He brilliantly plays Rollo, Ragnar’s gallant brother who suffers from being in his shadow.

In 2015, Clive was cast among famous names in the movie Everest. Starting in March 2017, he will get top billing in the much anticipated series Taken. This prequel to the famous trilogy of films will see Clive assume the role of Bryan Mills, played at an older age by Liam Neeson.

To his talents as an actor, Clive associates a big heart: he is one of the spokespeople for the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, dedicated to the conservation of marine wildlife.  

In spite of his busy schedule, Clive will come meet his fans for a weekend in Trolls & Légendes. He will be our guest in April, on Saturday and Sunday, for autograph signings, pictures, Q&A sessions and much more. More details to follow in the coming weeks.

Matthew Lewis 

 

MATTHEW LEWIS was propelled to international stardom as a child, after playing the role of Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter movie series, based on the best-selling novels by J.K. Rowling. With his faithful toad in tow, the pure-blood wizard apprentice conquered the hearts of millions of fans all over the world through his heroism and his loyalty to his Dumbledore’s Army friends. 

Matt kept acting after Harry Potter, and made his name known in successful movies such as the heartbreaking Me before you, in which he plays Patrick, Louisa’s ex.

He will soon be seen in two promising movies, having been cast in the thriller Terminal and the drama Playing Mercy, where he plays the lead alongside Charlotte Riley. 

 

When he is not acting, Matt is passionate about sports and puts his fame and time to good use for noble causes. As an example, he created a t-shirt to his likeness bearing a hopeful message to collect funds for sick children.

We are incredibly pleased to welcome Matt in Belgium for the first time during the 2017 edition of Trolls & Légendes! Matt will be with us in April, on Friday 14 and Saturday 15, for pictures, autograph signings, a cosplay contest and much more. Practical information and schedules will be announced soon.

Seigneurs d'Outremonde

seigneur outremonde 01

After eight years of production, led by a team of 280 volunteers, the ÉRe2 association produced a medieval and fantastic film, a unique human experience in France. More than 600 tricks, 2D and 3D shots, shootings in the Ile de France, Normandy, Picardy, Brittany ... scenes of battles, banquets, countryside life, shooting in a castle, underground, horse riding ...

For its finalization, the team even made a crowdfunding (on the My Major Company platform) in 2014 and obtained over € 35,000. This allowed the team to record some of the music in a symphony orchestra. The Michel Lafon editions were interested in this phenomenon, and a prequel novel of the history of the film was released in digital.

The members of the film will come to present their work of 70 minutes and will hold a stand to meet the public.

Nordicks

nordicksAt the end of the 5th century, in the midst of the dark age in northern Europe, Beowulf tried to become the king of Götland to allow his country to face those times of great changes. Unfortunately the path to the throne is strewn with pitfalls and his companions will not always be of great help. On the contrary ... In March 2013, Cyril Le Guienne wrote some humorous scenes about the legend of Beowulf, thus laying the first stones of the Nördicks project. The scripts piled up, he decided to call on his friends to make a webserie "just for fun". 

A long process of preparation and recruitment  began. At the end of that long preparation and many laughs, the team of volunteers from Nördicks shared on the net, the adventures of Beowulf and his faithful companions.

   

 

Exhibition Section

During this 7th edition, new spaces will be devoted to the Exhibition section. Various masterworks from the world of illustration, comics and sculpture will be unveiled for your  greatest pleasure!

 

 

 

 

Adrian Smith (uk)  

Adrian Smith was born in Sussex, a county south of London in 1969. After school, he starteed working right away, but felt there was more to do in life. He then began to study Art at Goring-by-Sea.
Following a friend's advice, he decided to send a portfolio of his drawings to Games Workshop, publisher of the famous role-playing Warhammer, and was hired. At 20, he became one of their major illustrators and worked from the very first day on Warhammer and Warhammer 40000.
A year later, Adrian decided to resume his freelance career. During this period he produced covers for Toxic, Wizards of the Coast and Fantasy Forge, and worked for some time on the famous game Kryomek. He then realized that he had built a solid reputation in the world of freelance design, but started dreaming of Games Workshop again after seeing the production of the some new artists of the studio. He returned to Games Workshop.
His countless illustrations of warriors and extraordinary creatures made him an undisputed master of heroic fantasy. His drawings are published around the world in fantasy magazines such as White Dwarf, and his drawing continues to inspire illustrators, cartoonists and game designers.
He is also the author of the cartoon series BRÖZ, with Pat Mills in the screenplay, and Chronicles of Hate, a breathtaking black and white graphic saga in two volumes.
A selection of his paintings, drawings and sketches produced for Games Workshop, Black Library and Sabertooth Games was released in 2003 under the title The Art of Adrian Smith, a cult book that is now out of print. In 2008, Dark Fantasy released The Universe of Adrian Smith, an album in the form of a bestiary world of shadows.
More recently, he has collaborated on several major board games such as Conan, The Others: 7 sins and has created the whole visual universe of Rising Sun (to be kickstarted in 2017) and especially Blood Rage, where Vikings clans compete for glory at the time of Ragnarok in a world full of warriors, Vikings gods and creatures of Nordic legend (Fenrir, Giants ...). The Art of Blood Rage will be on display in our exhibition spaces.

 

  

Adrian Smith is the guest of honor for the 7th edition of Trolls & Legends, for which he has designed the poster. Meet Adrian Smith in the exhibition space as well as in the games area, where you can also admire the figurines made after his illustrations.

 

  

 

Didier Graffet (f) 

Born in 1970, this French illustrator evolves in a medieval-fantastic style and explores both Nordic and Celtic mythology. He has studied traditional art and art history and is a graduate of the prestigious Émile-Cohl school.
Passionate about fantasy, he began his career in role playing and got his first order in 1994 for the cover of the magazine Casus Belli. He immediately established his reputation as the leading painter of Fantasy in France, namely with his early collaboration with Bragelonne. Among his many works, there is the complete illustration of Jules Verne's Vingt Mille Lieues sous les mers (for which he was rewarded in 2003) and L'Ile mystérieuse (Gründ Editions). Both made him known to the public, as well as covers of David Gemmell's novels, when those were spread throughout Europe.
In addition to very beautiful exhibitions, such as the one held recently at the Maghen gallery on the theme of the nineteenth century with on top the release of Steampunk: Steam and Steel (De vapeur et d’Acier, Le Pré aux Clercs, with texts Of Xavier Mauméjean), he was the author of the artbook Mondes & Voyages, published a few years ago at Bragelonne as well as the calendar, A Song of Ice and Fire (after the work better known under the name of Game of Thrones, George RR Martin). For the first time at Trolls & Légendes, he will be signing books on the stand of the Editor, his works will also be highlighted in the exhibition part of the festival.

   

Charline (f) 

Charline is an illustrator from Normandy. She is passionate about Imaginary and medieval imagery. Since her childhood, she has been developing an astonishing graphic universe full of details and chimeras. Inspired by nature, she favours watercolours, which allow her to create special and poetic atmospheres.

Chloé C. (f)


Born in France, Chloé C. made Belgium her home after having spent 5 years in the United States. History does not tell us whether it was our Belgian beers that convinced her to stick around after having studied comics for 3 years in Belgium. Curious about (almost everything) in a world that fascinates her, she draws comics hoping that they would bring little laughter and love. Her work can be read online - a lively and immediate media that suits her well.Go Get a Roomie! , her first webcomic, centers around Roomie, a young woman living her life to the fullest - we'd be tempted to call her a hippie (and that's how she defines herself) that we would be tempted to call hippie if it was not a little too strong.

But it is for Headless Bliss, her other webcomic, that we invited her to join us at Trolls & Légendes. Headless Bliss is a favourite of ours, in the words of the author, "a story about stories story-telling, and other metaphysical themes such as humour! Fights! Heads flying and legs missing! Adventures galore and failed teamwork! Fantasy realms and nonexistent rules! Character bonding and growth and nightmares! And last but not least... things that will make you WOW that is fucked up."

Chloé will be signing in the literature section of the festival during the weekend.

Donjons & Dragons - Bosse & Darasse (b & f) 

There are many links between comic books and role-playing (Dungeon of Sfar & Trondheim or Naheulbeuk... among many), but did you know that the story goes back further? The youngest ones, sorry, those with a few more experience points will certainly remember: in 1984, a strange group of adventurers appeared in the Journal de Tintin . Living in a small village, 3 young people gather secretly at evenings to play and experience epic adventures with Dungeon & Dragon run by a master of the game, the village grocer in real life. L'abominable trésor du galion maudit, Le Cratère de la Mort qui vole or La Revanche de Grunda l'Impitoyable are some examples of these extraordinary adventures full of jokes, with a sense of humour in the purest Belgo-French tradition.
DonjonDragon TL BosseDarasse MJ
 
But beyond the comic strip, Donjons & Dragons was for the great majority of readers of the Journal de Tintin, the very first encounter with the universe of the roleplaying games. It seduced new players, according to the letters of some readers addressed to the Newspaper in order to request for more information about the game in question (the newspaper published an article about the phenomenon in the 437th issue - 1984). This was all about the legendary Dungeons & Dragons game, which, as the name indicates, was the basis for the comic. Bosse & Darasse took some of their game sessions as starting points for their scenarios, exaggerating the distortion between the epic actions of the players and their daily lives. Unfortunately, the end of the Journal de Tintin in 1988 also meant the end of the series. The series never got its own book. 
DonjonDragon TL BosseDarasse Dragon
Trolls & Légendes is proud to present, with Bosse's explanatory texts, a few of the original pencil drawings of this series which, long before our festival existed, made the link between different areas fantasy. Before, who knows, why not a future edition?
 
Bosse will be signing in the games section on Friday.
