Jisan Valley Rock Fest 1st Lineup

By Mark

Just a short post to let everyone know that the Jisan Valley Rock Fest has announced its first lineup of bands and is now accepting orders for tickets. For the next couple of weeks, earlybird tickets are available for the discounted price of 176,000 won for the whole three-day event (but there is a limited supply at this price). After April 14, more tickets will be available for slightly more. There is are English-language ticketing sites here and here.

Not many acts have been announced yet — Amadou & Mariam, Feeder, The Chemical Brothers, The Music, Suede, 10cm, Apollo 18, and Crash. But I’m sure more will be announced soon.

Still no word from the other big summer music festival, Pentaport, although the website says something is coming soon.

  1. Looks weak for a first lineup :( Why on earth do Pentaport and Jisan decide to have their festivals at the very same time as Fuji Rock. No common sense. Compete compete.

  2. Jisan happens at the same time as Fuji Rock so that they can share some of Fuji Rock’s acts. Makes a lot of sense to me. It would cost the festival a lot more to bring over bands that weren’t already in Asia for Fuji Rock.

    Pentaport happened one week before Fuji Rock last year and were able to also get a few Fuji Rock acts like LCD Soundsystem and Ego-Wrappin’.
