Pentaport Rock Festival seem to be doing something right. They have been rocking away since 2006 and have yet to take a back seat in the festival scene in South Korea. Join the festival taking place from August 12-14.
Incheon Pentaport Rock Festival is about to celebrate its 11th year, making it Korea’s oldest and best-known summer rock festival. Held over three steamy days in Songdo, Incheon, it has certainly come a long way since its first—some say disastrous—incarnation as the Triport Festival which was rained out in 1999. Since its re-launch in 2006, Pentaport and the company behind it, Yescom Entertainment, have worked hard to shake the old image of muddy fields, poor facilities and pouring rain, to establish it as just about the only true international rock festival to have kept going successfully throughout the ups and downs of Korea’s alternative music scene over the past eleven years.
Lineups announced this year include Weezer, Two Door Cinema Club, Panic! At the Disco, The Vaccines, Nothing But Thieves, Monarchy and Idiotape.
