Press invitation to Boryeong Mud Festival 2019

Press invitation to Boryeong Mud Festival 2019
We are honored to invite representatives of the foreign press to the 22nd Boryeong Mud Festival. It is the most popular summer event in Korea, yearly attracting several million visitors – out of which are over 600,000 international guests, making it a truly global experience. 10 days of mud games, mud baths, and beach parties, together with the biggest K-pop acts and some of the most spectacular traditional performances, have earned the festival its international fame.

Three years in a row, Boryeong Mud Festival has been chosen as Korea’s Representative Festival by the Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism. This year’s Mud Festival will be held from 19th of July to 28th of July at its traditional venue – Daecheon Beach in Boryeong, South Korea.

This invitation serves to provide an opportunity for journalists from all over the globe to experience Korean culture at the most epic of the country’s festivals – Boryeong Mud Festival. Round-trip transportation and overnight accommodation will be provided to all qualified mass media representatives who will cover the festival on the 20th (Sat) and 21st (Sun) of July.

Over 200 foreign journalists from travel, music, and culture media outlets covered the festival last year. Unfortunately, we can offer the sponsored program to only 15 foreign press representatives. This offer will be available on a first-come-first-served basis, so please contact us with the details of your participation as soon as possible.

We are looking forward to seeing you at our festival!
