Here are some bits and pieces about upcoming tours and gigs.
– Greenplugged & The World DJ Festival are happening at the same time … again! The weekend of May 17-18 sees both of these multi-day events taking place. Stay up to date with Greenplugged here and WDJF here as they are both selling tickets already. WDJF have already announced that Dash Berin, DJ Bl3nd, and Sven Vath will perform.
– UMF have recently sold a slew of half price tickets (80,000 won) and announced they have moved their date forward six weeks to June 14-15. They have also announced that Carl Cox, Armin Van Buuren, and Avcii will play. Expect more details to be announced shortly.
– The Incheon Pentaport Rock Festival, which usually shares its acts with Japan’s Summer Sonic festival, MIGHT have some big names on board for this year’s fest. Metallica, Muse, Linkin Park, and The Stone Roses have been announced for Summer Sonic — will Pentaport be able to secure any of them?
– Galaxy Express and The Rock Tigers are both touring around Korea right now. Those outside of Seoul should take this chance to see two of Korea’s busiest and most-entertaining live acts.
Galaxy Express play in Busan (Feb 1), Daegu (Feb 2) , and Seoul (Feb 17). The Rock Tigers play in Cheonan (Feb 23), Gwangju (March 1), Seoul (March 2), Busan (March 9), and Daejon (March 23).
