The event starts on December 20th and will run until January 27th, 2020. Starting at 5:30 pm each night, visitors can experience many different light displays as they walk around the lake. From robots to flashing lights and rainbows, there is a little bit of everything for everyone. Throughout the evening there will also be some performances on the far side of the lake. These will mainly be local performers and trot singers but it makes for a fun night. In front of the swimming pool, there are also illuminated swings seesaws as well.

Posted by on Apr 7, 2018 in | Comments Off on Big Day South 2018

Big Day South comes home to Busan for a day of art and music. Angle Magazine’s flagship event is coming home. The audio-visual festival returns with a bang after a one year hiatus, with the biggest line-up to date. Taking place on April 28th in four venues around the PNU area of Busan, the festival celebrates the creatives who live and work in the southern half of the country. The ethos of community and collaboration remains as strong as ever, with bi-lingual music site DoIndie adding their experience and expertise to the event. Given the expansion of the festival, the variety of performers has also grown. Participants come from Daegu, Gwangju, Jinju, Jeju, Ulsan, Changwon, and of course, Busan. The definition of community has also opened up to include Seoul artists who regularly travel south and have built a place for themselves in the southern scene. With a history of showcasing what happens outside of Seoul, this year the festival will be part of an overall effort to create a stronger link between the two communities. Continuing the theme of collaboration, Busan arts collective Exotic Beasts will team up with Seoul collective Crazy Multiply for a joint exhibition at Art Gallery Open. The space will also hold interactive art, and screen printing by MINI...
