High-rated MBC reality comedy program “Infinite Challenge” will be holding a song festival in Imjingak, 7 kilometers from the Demilitarized Zone in Paju, Gyeonggi Province.

The show’s production team told The Korea Herald that it could not confirm the location or other details ahead of the press conference slated for Thursday, but fans said they were able to pinpoint the location after several witnesses reported seeing stages set up around the area.

This year marks the fourth edition of the song festival, which started in 2007. In its inaugural year, the concert was held next to the riverside road on the north side of the Hangang River. In 2009 the festival was held next to the Olympic Expressway, followed by a vacant lot next to a highway rest area along the West Coast Highway in 2012. Every festival has enjoyed success, with the songs performed by chart-topping artists.

This year’s festival will include performances by seven teams, with each team featuring an “Infinite Challenge” member and a guest composer/singer: Jeong Hyeong-don and G-Dragon, Park Myung-soo and Primary, Jeong Jun-ha and Kim C, Yoo Jae-suk and You Hee-yeol, Gil Seong-joon and BoA, Haha and Jang Gi-ha and the Faces, and Noh Hong-chul and the Rose Motel.
