Korea music festivals attract Brits

24th Jul 2012

Excitement is building in Korea ahead of a series of pop and rock music festivals that have attracted several big-name British bands.

Newly reformed The Stone Roses are heading to the Asian country for the first time to perform at the Jisan Valley Rock Festival, which takes place at the Jisan Valley Ski Resort in Incheon from July 27 to 29.

Critically acclaimed alternative rockers Radiohead are also performing at the Jisan festival for the first time, while former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher's new band Beady Eye are in town for the second year running.

Meanwhile, music fans in Korea also have the three-day Pentaport Rock Festival in Incheon to prepare for, which kicks off on August 10, when the likes of the Manic Street Preachers and Snow Patrol will be taking to the stage.

Finally, pop lovers will be excited to see chart sensation Gotye is heading to the Super! Sonic Festival in Seoul's Olympic Park, which takes place on August 14 and 15.

Rock fans haven't been left out there either, with US favourites Smashing Pumpkins set to appear.
