Hard to believe that the summer festival season is starting up already, but it is. We have the return of the Valley Rock Festival to Jisan. It runs July 22-24 and its first lineup gets announced in a few hours, but it looks like Radiohead is going to be on the bill.
(UPDATE: Well, no Radiohead in the first announcement. So far, just two bands: Kula Shaker and Red Hot Chili Peppers)
Beautiful Mint Life runs May 14-15, and its first lineup gets announced early next week.
Green Plugged Seoul is May 21-22, and will have Crying Nut, 3rd Line Butterfly, Galaxy Express, Winterplay, Pavlov and more.
The Seoul Jazz Festival is May 28-29, and it actually has announced a lot of artists: Corinne Bailey Rae, Pat Metheny, Terence Blanchard, Rufus Wainright, Nat King Cole Tribute Band, and plenty more to come.
UMF Korea is June 10-12.
Some of the shows have English ticketing on Interpark, but I’ll try to have better links as they turn up.
