The only thing that spoils the excitement of a music festival is the dilemma of having to choose which bands to see. Pentaport with its 6 stages hosting both local and international acts of the highest caliber, is no exception - but the thrill of running between stages after carefully planning one’s timetable is part of the fun! However, for those people who don’t know much about the local indie scene or, those of you who have trouble making difficult choices … it might be tough to make your own timetables and decide who to see. To help you out the DoIndie team have made some festival recommendations for you. Our team members are all regular concert goers in the Hongdae scene. You can check out our recommendations below, if you choose to check them out we are sure you won’t be disappointed, or feel free to ignore us altogether and make your own picks. Either way, you are going to have have a great weekend at Pentaport Festival.

Below are our picks for Sunday Aug 9th. To see our picks for the other days of the festival, click the links below :

FRIDAY | SATURDAY | SUNDAY


The Roosters

- Shinhan Card Stage 12:20 - 12:40

The Roosters are another band that got the opportunity to perform at this year’s Pentaport festival via the Great Rookie audition competition. The band’s members all met at school and went on to form the band. The Roosters are a mod band whose music makes me want to put on my best clothes and dance the night away. When you see them live you will find yourself jumping around and singing along to their catchy and repetitive lyrics. If you want to dance along to and enjoy some good old fashioned rock ‘n roll then The Roosters are your band to see at this year’s Pentaport festival.

Reflex

- Dream Stage 12:40 - 13:10

Get your Sunday started off right with Reflex! Their catchy melodies and unique style of rock, with pop, punk, and R&B influences, will get you dancing and put you in a good mood. I’ve been following this band since just a few months after their formation, and as they have grown in popularity and continued to develop their style, the thing that has always stayed the same is the energy they bring to the stage during their shows. A crowd favorite is one of their first songs, “Vanished”. Start the last day of the festival on a good note, but make sure you’re ready to dance!

Jamie

South Carnival x No. 1 Korean

- Pentaport Stage 14:00 - 14:40

My favourite music genre is ska with plenty of brass, and my favourite place in Korea is Jeju Island. The ten exuberant guys and girls of Korean-Latin ska band South Carnival combine those two things into one big samba festival infused with island-style percussion and the unique Jeju dialect. Kicking things off on the Pentaport Stage on Sunday afternoon will be a very special first-time collaboration between South Carnival and Hongdae ska stalwarts Number 1 Korean; this stage will be sure to get you dancing and skanking with a mad grin on your face, no matter the weather nor your taste in music! Both teams will play individual sets later in the day over on the Jamaican-tinged Zippo One Love Stage, to keep the party atmosphere going throughout the afternoon.

Rock N Rose

WHOwho

- Dream Stage 14:40 - 13:10

WHOwho are a danceable electronic pop rock band. They have a powerful and addictive sound and have built up a large following of fans, both Korean and foreign. They released their first album this year, which marked a big step up for the band. The band have a nickname that translates roughly to ‘Love At First Sight’, which is fairly apt, for if you listen to the band just once, you will quickly find yourself falling for them. The excitement of the festival experience should take WHOwho up another notch and make for a show full of excitement.

Ilhwa

The Solutions

- Pentaport Stage 15:10 - 15:50

The Solutions are experiencing another surge in popularity thanks to their appearance on the KBS show <You Hee-yeol's Sketchbook>. Right from the start with their debut release people compared their music to famous pop albums from abroad. The band consists of original members 나루 and 박솔 as well as 권오경 (bass) and 박한솔 (drums) who joined later to give the band a more powerful sound. If you are curious about the band, make sure you don’t miss them playing here at Pentaport. Join everyone as they sing along to the song ‘Otherside’.

A-lim

Boys In The Kitchen

- Shinhan Card Stage 15:50 - 16:10

If you listen to Boys In The Kitchen’s songs, which are packed with cheerful melodies and sympathetic lyrics, you will probably find yourself singing along without even being aware you are doing it. The songs may be cheerful, but their powerful performances are impressive. In reference to their name they usually play live wearing full chef outfits. Theirs is a fun-packed set that is not to be missed.

Sunwoo Jung-A

- Dream Stage 16:10 - 16:40

Sunwoo-Junga is the focus of a lot of attention these days. Singer songwriter Sunwoo-Junga came to the forefront of people's minds when she released her second album <It’s Okay Dear> in 2013. She was named Artist of the Year and received Best Pop Album at the Korean Music Awards in 2014. Most people think she is amazing because of her work producing songs like 2NE1’s ‘It Hurts’, G-Dragon & TOP’s ‘Oh Yeh’ as well as producing songs for other artists in the YG stable. However, I think she is more amazing for her own personal music project. Her singing voice is amazing and from that vocal base she easily creates her own music across a wide range of massively differing music styles, from original jazz, soul and blues to more electronic, hip-hop and R&B-style songs as well. I can’t wait to see what kind of songs she plays on the Arena stage at this year’s Pentaport festival.

J-Myon

Thornapple

- Dream Stage 18:50 - 19:30

Thornapple is an amazing band that you shouldn’t miss! They have an understated rock sound while always keeping it quite low-key. They have beautiful, soft guitar lines that match perfectly with the often-haunting vocals. Having seen them several times, I can honestly say, they never disappoint.
