World Music Festival in Ulsan – this weekend!

This weekend, Ulsan will host its annual World Music Festival, which is, in the opinion of this editor, the best festival held in Ulsan, and easily within the top 10 festivals nation-wide.  (Other top festivals include the Jinju Lantern Festival and the Andong Maskdance Festival, both of which are also happening this weekend, of course.) It will take place in and around the Ulsan Culture Center, which is right beside KBS Hall, near the Byeong-yeong Bridge. It’s pinned on the Interactive Map, under Culture.

This year, the line up in the 4 different venues includes bands from Argentina, Uruguay, Columbia, Angola, Morocco, South Africa, Spain, Greece, the Netherlands, Hungary, France Scotland, Australia, New Zealand and Korea. The festival takes place over 4 days, starting Thursday evening, and continuing until Sunday night. For a full schedule, check out their website, which includes an English version.

One of the draws for this festival is the wide variety of food and cultural tents set up around the Culture Center. A wide variety of local restaurants and  groups sell snacks, beverages and souvenirs from all over the world.
