A festival that promotes peace and unification on the most divided part of the country: The Korean Demilitarized zone
Glastonbury Festival’s main booker Martin Elbourne came up with the idea while visiting Korea in 2017 where he linked up with the Zandari Festa festival organizers Dalse Kong Yoon-young and Lee Dong-yeon.
The pros went on a casual visit to the DMZ and this is where Martin captured a field near the border while the others were getting into tunnels caved by North Koreans a long time ago. The area seemed like a great place to organise a festival. After many talks with his team, he got the chance to explain the concept to the mayor of this region, who owned most of the DMZ zone. Early 2018 he went back to Seoul he convinced the mayor and his associates to fund the first edition of the festival. Organising a big festival was not new for Martin, however it’s needless to say that the process of the first-ever edition of the DMZ Peace Train Festival contains some interesting stories and anecdotes.
