HBC Fest 2014

The weather is getting warmer and warmer, meaning spring is here.  Along with spring, comes The HBC Festival – a live music event that takes place in the HaeBongChon district of Itaewon. The festival is thrown to bring the foreign community of Seoul together through music, food, and drinks. Live music is performed at many of the HBC area establishments for free or a small cover charge (usually no more 10,000 Won).  The event started in 2006 and has steadily grown in size each year. Check out the fun this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, May 16th-18th, at Exit 2 of Noksapyeong Station (Line 6 next to Iteawon Station).  You’ll be able to find the event map and the band lineup below!  Also, if you want to get more information, you can check out the HBC Fest 2014 Facebook page and website.
