|The Seoul Fringe Festival, the most representative independent arts festival of Korea, will be held for its 15th year this year in the Hongdae area. The festival aims at presenting and supporting the indie culture of Hongdae that is in danger due to the rapid commercialization of the district. The festival showcases various artists and their works, exposing guests of all ages to new forms of cultural arts that are difficult to encounter during daily life in Hongdae.
The 3 key components of the Seoul Fringe Festival are the artists, audience, and venue. The highly-supported BYOV (Bring Your Own Venue) system encourages artists to personally seek sites that compliment their works or performances, providing the audience with the opportunity to observe art in a new light. During the festival, cafes, clubs, and galleries in the Hongdae area will serve as a dynamic site for artists of varying fields to gather and experiment new methods of expressing their art.
During the festival period around 50 teams will be giving live dance and drama performances, revealing the charm of the hidden and unnoticed areas of the Hongdae area. The subway station, alleyways, Samjimadang, and parks will all serve as informal outdoor venues for this magnetic street art.
