Zandari Festa is a fast-growing festival in Hongdae and showcases a variety of bands. It is definitely up there as one of my top favourite festivals, even though I have never attended.

As you all may have heard, the festival takes place October 2nd to the 4th. If you have the opportunity to go, I highly recommend you check it out and share your opinions with us!

Below is a list of the 5 bands playing in the festival who I would love to see live someday.

Love x Stereo

I love Love x Stereo. When listening to their electro rock style, you can tell they fit that music genre to a tee. They have performed in so many places, so many times, that you know they are amazing and talented live.

Ladies (레이디스)

I don’t think many people know of the group Ladies, a duo group with members Choi Hyun-Cheol and Park Sung-Joon. They are an acoustic band and play in a variety of styles, and have also done a few cover songs of artists like Adele and Shinee.


Superkidd is a rock band that was formed in 2005. They have had some line up changes throughout the years but that doesn’t take away the fact that they are extremely talented.


KIRARA composes electronic music and describes her music as “pretty and strong”. I really like her music because it is unique and I love her composing style. If I had the chance to see KIRARA live, I’m sure it would be a lot of fun!


There is no doubt in my mind that Jambinai would give an incredible performance live. They make use of both traditional and modern instruments which is unique to them. Furthermore, they are a great addition to Zandari Festa.

This list was extremely difficult to make because there are so many bands attending the festival who I would like to see. I hope that if our readers do have the opportunity to go, that you will enjoy yourselves and have a lot of fun. I would like to mention again that I would love to hear how Zandari Festa is if you do have the chance to go.
