Zandari Festa 2016 – Five Questions with Tirikilatops

The fifth annual Zandari Festa is taking place in Hongdae from September 30 –
October 3. To spotlight some of the event’s performers, Korea Gig Guide is asking a bunch of acts five simple questions.


For this installment, we’re talking with Super Bodreong from UK act Tirikilatops. Composed of British and Korean musicians, the group’s unique brand of “Avant Garde K-Pop” is wild and a lot of fun. Now let’s get to his answers!

1) Why are you excited to be performing at Zandari Festa 2016?

We are excited to be performing at Zandari mainly due to the fact that we hope to bring smiles to as many people as possible and we have heard that Zandari is a super cool and super fun festival! Plus it is on singer Bom Carrot’s home turf! So there’s going to be family and friends and new friends! That’s exciting!

2) What can people expect from a Tirikilatops live show?

Fun and free fruit and vegetables! We exist to spread happiness, earworms, and dada!

3) For fest-goers not familiar with Tirikilatops yet, what should they know about you?

We are a musical collaboration between Korea and the UK. Bom Carrot, the singer, is Korean and I’m from the UK. We also have a revolving door of extra performers from Korea and the UK, namely, Kangcoo, Sea Robber Potato, Grass Face Wilson and Kangcootwo. We are not yet certain who will grace the stage with us at Zandari, but it will be one of them for sure. We make music that is quite hard to define. It has been described as “Avant Garde K-Pop” and also “What the hell….?” Both descriptions are fitting.

4) Aside from performing, what else would you like to do during Zandari Festa 2016?

Our aim is to see as many cool bands as possible whilst drinking lots of makgeolli!

5) If you can go drinking with another Zandari Festa act, who do you want it to be?

Patients! We saw them play in Manchester and they were great. They are super friendly guys too, so we expect a few bottles of soju in their company would make for a jolly evening.
