HBC Fest falls into it again.
Hae Bang Chon Fall Music Festival will take place October 20th and 21st 2017
This is the second installment of HBC Fest in the 12th year of the Hae Bang Chon bi-annual music festival with a great lineup taking us into a new decade for independent music. The definitive expat and international music fest in Korea. Made up entirely of independent music artists and performers from Korea and a host of other countries. The festival began in 2006 as a showcase for expat musicians in the city to perform to larger crowds. The 'Fest' was originally started by Lance Reegan-Diehl and James Gaynor, and at that time the DEELEEBOB Music Company was born, which Lance currently owns.
HBC, located in Youngsan-Gu (Sinheung-Ro) is one main street where the action happens from the very bottom all the way up to the top where the Hair of the Dog sits. HBC area became very famous as a local expat hangout from 1998 onward, and the Hae Bang Chon festival has made the entire area blossom into a bubbly, busy place for all kinds of businesses to open as more people find it an attractive neighborhood to be in. The festival has always adapted to the demands of both musicians and venues, this fall festival venues and supporters: Hair Of The Dog, Chimac Life, Phillies Pub, Bedrock, The Cave, Bonny’s Pizza Pub, Al Matto Terrace, Camarata Music, Genie Pub, Leo’s, Rabbit Hole, Casablanca Sandwiches, Marakesh, Thunderhorse Tavern, The Workshop, and Hidden Cellar.

Phillies Pub, Camarata Music, V-Lounge, Bedrock , Boogie Woogie, and Thunderhorse Tavern host the bands where the music is located on medium sized stages, and the sounds range from blues, to rock, to jazz, and all points funky in between.
