Korea Burn Event in Gijipo beach
Korea Burn started in 2011 on Muuido Beach, near Incheon with roughly 150 burners in attendance. People set up tents, play guitars and bongos while everyone participes in body painting, hair braiding, yoga, dancing, bar-tending, and fire-spinning. “Our goal is to bring the spirit and community of Burning Man in Nevada, USA, to South Korea, with all the love and creative expression of Black Rock City,” the organizers say.
Where: Gijipo Beach, Anmyeon, Taean-Gun
Getting there: from Seoul you can take a bus from Express Bus Terminal or Nambu Bus Terminal to Anmyeon Bus Terminal, then W8,000 TAXI ride to the beach location.
Truly aweseome concert
The concept for the gig is that all the bands set up at the same time along the perimeter of the room with the audience in the center. Each band does one song at a time, no breaks, back to back to back etc., until the show is completed. There is no headliner or opener, no front row or back of the room.
