  • What is it?

    Half-price tickets to the annual city-wide Korean music festival.

    Why buy?

    Across a number of London’s top venues, the annual celebration of Korean music is returning to London. And no, this isn’t one purely for aficionados: if Korean music is anything, it’s constantly evolving, taking in Western influences and the latest breakthroughs in musical technology while still making nods to its rich musical heritage. Whether it’s screaming psychedelia or reggae, we guarantee that you’ll see something fresh, unique and exciting. And our deal brings tickets down to as little as £7.25 – take a look at the line-up below!

    Who’s playing?

    Black String & Kathryn Tickell
    Union Chapel, September 15
    A hotly-tipped collaboration between the musician, composer and Northumbrian pipes player Kathryn Tickell and experimental Korean group Black String, who take traditional folk based around the traditional stringed geomungo and meld it with a modern, experimental electronic sound.

    Rich Mix, October 9
    Famed geomungo player Woojae Park will be joined by the Japanese drummer Shogo Yoshii and British-Indian composer and sarod player Soumik Datta. Expect a curious fusion of different musical international traditions.

    Rich Mix, October 15

    Kingston Rudieska London
    Borderline, October 23
    Yep, Korean ska-reggae: it’s a thing. Pioneers in their field, Kingston Rudieska will be bringing their brass-led sound, which they describe as ‘FeastSka!’, for the very first time.
