Laos to host fourth Asean-South Korea Music Festival in November

VIENTIANE/JAKARTA (Bernama): The Asean-South Korea Music Festival 2024 (2024 ROUND), organised by South Korean broadcaster KBS and backed by the South Korean government via the ASEAN-South Korea Cooperation Fund, is set to take place in Laos this November.

In its fourth year since its inception in 2020, the festival - themed ‘Step Out, Sing As One’ - aims to strengthen cultural ties and promote dialogue between ASEAN member countries and South Korea through music, according to the Asean Secretariat on Saturday.

"Laos will host the 2024 ROUND in November as part of its Asean Chairmanship," the secretariat noted in a statement.

Despite the challenges brought by Covid-19, the festival made a successful return in 2023 with its first offline concert in Jakarta, Indonesia, drawing over 2,000 attendees and selling out pre-sale tickets.

Before the 2024 ROUND, the Asean-Korea Music Forum is set to occur on March 5-6 in Seoul, gathering music industry professionals from South Korea and ASEAN member countries to discuss the vision and potential of both regions’ music in the global market.

Discussions will also cover KBS’ AI solution, ‘VVERTIGO’, and showcase South Korean broadcasting technology through music programmes.

This year holds special significance for Asean and South Korea as they commemorate the 35th anniversary of their partnership, which began in 1989. - Bernama
