Global Gathering Korea 2011

Saturday, October 8, 2011 - 14:00

★ World No.1 Dance Music Festival

This is the Moment, Dance !!  A one night only, knock-down dance music festival

The biggest most humongous global dance music festival “Global Gathering Festival’ is going to be held on October 8th, 2011, bringing back the excitement and memories from last year.

Just like the name, Global Gathering Korea has been ranked the best domestic electronic music festival. Global Gathering Korea has added a new scene to the rock ‘n roll base domestic festival culture and has provided a lot to the fans who know how to enjoy and appreciate the outdoor dance music festival atmosphere.

Performance: R-16 B-boy show (Olympic Park, Seoul)

Author’s note: it was very hard narrowing this down to 20 photos for this post – for even more, check out this Facebook photo album.

Watch out for spinning feet, headstands, and battles – the B-boys have come to town. Combined with a street market and several walls worth of graffiti contests, this was an all-day venture for some. Now in it’s fifth year – and it’s largest venue.

Performance: Little Shop of Horrors (Camarata Music Company)

The ‘Little Shop of Horrors’ has aged nicely, considering it was copyrighted the same year I was born. The story is straightforward enough: geeky Seymour, an orphan taken in by Mr. Mushnik (left), and his ‘not-so-secret’ crush Audrey, both work at Mr. Mushnik ‘skid row’ flower shop. I was too busy taking photos to note how accurate the Korean subtitles were, but the Korean audience seemed to laugh in all the right places. His face isn’t visible in this picture, but the wino (center, on ground) is the only Korean actor in the production.

Korea’s 7 “Can’t Miss” Festivals

Photos and story by Ed Provencher

Skip it or day-trip it? Korea’s festivals are numerous, but how do you know which ones are worth going to? Travel blogger Ed Provencher makes it easy for us.

Being in a new country, I have the following options: I have the opportunity to become a new person; I can break ties with the old self or learn about myself. For instance, when it comes to music I’ve always listened to rap, hip-hop, r&b and a little bit of classical and Motown tunes. Before I left Toronto, I was listening to Eminem and Drake and a few other well known artists, but I was getting tired of that music scene. I wanted to listen to something different. I wanted to listen to music that is fresh and full of style. So, I started looking at the top 10 selling albums on Itunes and I discovered a band called Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, an alternative rock band.
