About Jabberwocky Festival

The cinema program will also be announced soon, and stay tuned for updates on other activities.

Tickets are on sale now.

Pitchfork is happy to team up with ATP and Primavera once again, who we have worked with many times in the past. “Jabberwocky”, the poem in the wonderful 1871 Lewis Carroll book Through the Looking-Glass, is firstly a brilliant word and also the origin of the word portmanteau. In it, Humpty Dumpty eloquently explains that in a portmanteau, there are two meanings packed up into one word. Jabberwocky thus gives us words such as chortled, a combination of chuckle and snort, and frabjous, a blend of fair, fabulous, and joyous. Jabberwocky, the festival, is thus an elegant way to package up this collaboration between Pitchfork, ATP, and Primavera.
