Winter has passed, flowers are in bloom, and festivals are on the horizon. Music festivals featuring various genres such as jazz, rock, and electronic music are becoming a major tourist attraction, drawing both international and domestic visitors.
So far, 14 music festivals have been scheduled between March and August of this year. The first one will be the ‘Seoul Live Music Festa’ on March 30, which will be held simultaneously at 5 theaters around Hongdae (Hongik University Street) in Seoul. Major festivals such as the Seoul Jazz Festival and the World DJ Festival will be showcasing amazing talents in May. Excitement levels will reach fever pitch as we approach the pinnacle of the festival season in summer with the Incheon Pentaport Festival, which was designated by the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism as one of the ‘Up-and-Coming Festivals’ in the list of 2013 Culture Tourism Festivals of Korea.
