6 Bands To Check Out At Zandari Festa 2015

zandari_logo_finYou’ve likely heard of SXSW, but have you heard of Zandari Festa? Started in 2012, the music festival aims to bring together Korean and international musical acts and is currently Korea’s largest music festival. Zandari Festa takes place in the hub of Korean youth and music culture, Seoul’s Hongdae neighborhood, and will take place this year at a variety of venues from October 2-4.

Ahead of the festival, we spoke to six bands. Each of these indie bands – Crying Nut, su:m, Idiotape, A’z Bus, Jambinai, and DTSQ– has something different to offer, and will be playing at this year’s Zandari Festa.
