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.
