The Bump City band is back from our short break and will be hitting the road down to Gongju to play their Baekjae Cultural Festival(백제문화제) which lasts two full weeks beginning September 24th and ending October 2nd.
We’ll be headlining this weekend September 24th and 25th. This is the 62nd annual celebration of the festival which is held to commemorate the three loyal subjects of the Baekje era, namely Seongchung, Heungsu, and Gyebaek through a Samchungje rite.
The festival is a tribute to the Baekje Dynasty, which occupied the region for nearly 700 years and engaged in active exchanges with China and Japan. Marking its 60th anniversary this 2014, the Baekje Cultural Festival will be held under the theme of “Baekje! Meets the World” and offer about 70 diverse programs embodying Baekje’s great culture.
The entire site was an accidental discovery while digging a water mane in 1971 and has unlocked an entire world of mysteries including royal tombs, golden artifacts and a fortress wall that spans 2, 660m long and 210,000㎡ wide which is named the Gongsanseong Fortress. It’s a beautiful place as well as a Unesco world heritage site.
We hope to see you all there! Want more information? Click the links below!
