Big Day South 2019

This year again, Angle Magazine and Busan Indiens collaborated to present Big Day South 2019 to the public. Big Day South is an audio-visual festival in Busan, and the largest iteration of its genre. The 3-day festival (May 24th-26th) will spread out across the city with stages at Gwangan, KSU, and PNU.

As always, Big Day South provides a space for community, collaboration, and appreciation. There’s a truly wonderful line-up of artists and performers this year, and audience participation is just as important as ever with a number of new ways to engage and interact.

Big Day South 2019 organized specials event for its participants!

First, there will be a live screen printing by Mini Print, which will include commemorative posters for the audience. In order to get the poster, you will have to participate in a scavenger hunt. Find the 9 QR codes displayed, each linking to one image specially created by US artist Michael Melson for the festival. Once you saved all 9 images, bring the full collection to Mini Print at Node and take your poster back home!

Second, the 10 first people to share the exhibition on their social media with the hashtag #bigdaysouth will be invited to a secret show that will take place in Busan at a later date.


May 24th-26th (Fri-Sun), 2019
