Mention Korean music and K-Pop and ‘Gangnam Style’ may well be the first things to spring to mind. But there’s so much more to their rich, musical scene right now and the forthcoming K-Music Festival is proving just that.
This year’s K-Music Festival is an introduction to the country’s music, and will showcase distinct and electrifying events from all across the musical spectrum. Each performer explores new boundaries within their particular genre, and although the artists share a common culture and identity, they certainly aren’t bound by this.
Taking place from 15th September and going on until 25th October, the festival will be hosting events at various venues across London. With so many rare shows in this year’s programme, the festival promises to be a month-long musical treat.
Below, we’ve picked out some of the best songs of the artists coming to this year’s K-Music Festival to give you a flavour of what’s to come.
