In October, Digitalism are coming to Seoul as part of the world renowned Global Gathering festival. We have our tickets already, and are far too excited to drink cocktail bags and get palpitations when we hear Zdarlight and Pogo. Digitalism, however, are not the only ones on the lineup, Groove Armada will be there, as will Yolanda be Cool, 360sounds, Astro Voize, Example & DJ Wire, Glen Check of Hongdae fame, and Idiotape. There are loads more acts playing, if you want to check them out click here.
It’s one of the biggest dance events in Seoul, and is the last major music festival of the year, so if you are still desperately trying to cling on to the last living remains of summer before Korea freezes over then I think you should get yourself down to Global Gathering. It is only for one night, but if it’s anything like World DJ Fest – and we think this will be loads better – then it will be serious fun. You don’t want to be one of them who says no to fun. It’s also in central Seoul, so it should be very easy to find a place to stay, or to get home at the end of the night. No passing out on the 6am subway. For most, anyway.
It’s on Saturday 8th October at Hangang Park in Seoul.
Buy tickets here.
By Taxi – Hongik Univ. – 15 minutes
- Seoul Station – 25 minutes
- Ganagnam Station – 35 minutes
By Subway – Take exit #1 at world cup stadium line #6. Walk along the road and when you see some stairs walk up them, it will take you into the festival site. You will hear some bass and see loads of people. You can’t get lost. These are foolproof directions.
