Global Gathering 2012

So you’re battered, bruised and sunburnt from festival season. You spent all your money at Jisan, lost your iPhone at Pentaport, and for some reason you thought it would be a good idea to exchange your tent at Burning Man in return for having your face painted like a tiger. You poor body may feel...

The KOXX Fred Perry Viewzic Session

The Fred Perry Viewzic sessions is an event series created to bring a larger concert-style feeling to smaller, more intimate gigs. It’s also a regular showcase of less mainstream, awesome Korean bands, with past performers including the superb Glen Check, huge rock band Apollo 18 (who are currently touring Canada) and alt hip hop group Primary...

Cakeshop

Yesss, a brand new venue where we can fill our faces with bass.

The bands, including alt pop rockers Gogostar, experimental group Jambinai, and punk rockers Rux, encircle the room, creating a border around the audience. Each...

Korea Burn

Chincha will be heading to Korea Burn this weekend for a huge beachside, Nevada desert-style celebration. We’re going to be filming the fun and getting you guys to tell us about your festival experience in return for hugs, stickers and soju shots. It’s likely you already know about the much-hyped festival set on Gijipo Beach...

Innertrip Festival

We also love events that fall in the middle of the two extremes, such as August’s upcoming Innertrip Festival. A psy-trance party based around the themes of peace, love, respect,...
