A month from today, Malaysian pop punk band An Honest Mistake will be heading to South Korea for Zandari Festa, the country’s largest music showcase festival in Seoul which will feature over 300 bands from around the globe.
Started in 2012, Zandari Festa brings together music acts and professionals from the industry, from all over the world for concerts and conferences at more than 20 unique venues around Hongdae in Seoul, which is known to be the epicenter of South Korean youth culture and the starting point for the country’s indie music scene.
“Our trip to South Korea isn’t merely to perform, but to also connect with as many industry experts and musicians during the conferences and showcases with the intention to build a bridge for Malaysian bands, so that they too can display their art on a world stage,” said Darren Teh, vocalist of An Honest Mistake.
Aside from An Honest Mistake, some other established and rising acts that will be performing at the fifth edition of Zandari Festa include The Barbarettes, Swiimers, Grey Watson with The Vision, The New Investors, Paranoid City, J-Brothers, Cosovel, Takako Tate and more.
Zandari Festa 2016 will take place from 30 September to 3 October 2016.
