According to the festival organizers Thursday, the Incheon Pentaport Rock Festival 2021 will take place Oct. 9-10 as an online event, free of charge. In 2020, the festival went online for the first time since its launch in 2006, gathering a total of around 780,000 viewers.
Though it is a rock festival, the event will also feature musicians working in other genres, such as singer Lee Seung-hwan, alternative pop band Leenalchi, indie band 10cm, K-pop act N.Flying and more.
The organizers said the festival will also feature overseas artists through pre-recorded clips.
Organized by Incheon Metropolitan City, the annual festival is held every August at Songdo Moonlight Festival Park.
“We hoped to host an offline festival this year with in-person audiences, but had to go online like we did last year,” an official of the festival said through a press release. “The festival will continue its legacy as a leading music festival with new, diverse programs and offer comfort to people hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, quenching their thirst for culture.”
