World D.J. festival combines culture, community
This year’s festival features foreign artists such as the Freemasons from the U.K., Dirty Disco Youth from Germany and Fantastic Plastic Machine from Japan, alongside popular Korean D.J.s such as Lee Sang-eun and Prana.
In one unique festival program, called Silent Disco, which has been a sensation at D.J. festivals outside of Korea, participants wear wireless headsets that stream the D.J.’s music right into their ears.
Another event called Festiville gives visual artists, D.J.s and participants a place to meet, exchange music, culture and more. Through the event, 22 local artists will set up booths where they will share their talents with festival attendees. One group, La Percussions, comprised of Brazilian percussionists, will give demonstrations about the music of Brazil. Another group called O.F.F., which consists of college students majoring in fashion from all over Korea, will hold fashion shows and seminars, provide makeovers and hold raffles with fashion accessories.
“Avid dance lovers who do not want to compromise their passion for dance with rules of social etiquette should be excited about these events,” festival organizers say.
