Summer’s coming. That means large outdoor concert season is coming.
Apparently, this also applies to Korea. Come July, Korea will be host be many pretty big acts through two large weekend long rock festivals. Sadly, for whatever reason, both the Jisan Valley Rock Festival and Pentaport Rock Festival are on the same weekend. I understand that Korea’s a pretty competitive place, but come on guys! You’ve got two festivals and a whole summer to put them in. Sounds like the event planners went to the Burger-King-School-of-Planning, where they teach you to put your store as close to the competition as possible. It’s a really bad deal for both planners. It actually blows my mind that they’re holding both festivals on the same weekend. It’s like if you and your roommate are going to a party and you show up wearing the exact same outfit, gunning for the same girl. Whatever happens, it won’t be as fun as it could/should have been.
Anyway, here’s the information. These lineups are just the primaries, so they’ll be expanded as the date looms closer. By the look for things, I’ll probably end up going to the Jisan festival, just because I love Fall Out Boy (I know… I know…).
