Songdo in the western port city of Incheon will host its annual summer festival at the end of this month. Outdoor concerts will entertain visitors as they enjoy ice-cold beer and fireworks from Aug. 23-31.
The festival, in its ninth year, has grown into a popular crowd puller, where hundreds of thousands of visitors lose themselves in the summer mood. It will feature performances by a score of hip-hop, dance, rock and ballad musicians, and beer lovers will have their choice of a variety of crisp, foamy brews, both local and international.
It appeals not only to party-loving youngsters but also families with children. Water slides, games and other attractions will be set up to keep the kids busy and magnificent fireworks will light up the skies every night to provide a spectacle for kids and adults alike.
As Songdo is an international business town, the festival draws a host of foreign visitors every year. The organizers expect as many as 5,000 foreigners to attend this year.
The festival will be open from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays and 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weekends. Admission is free.
