    DMZ Peace Train Music Festival 2019 Opens

    The DMZ Peace Train Music Festival 2019 will be held for five days, from June 5 to 9, 2019 at Platform Changdong 61 in Seoul and in Cheorwon County, Gangwon-do.

    On June 5, an international conference will take place at Platform Changdong 61 with the subject “The DMZ: a Fluid Cultural Platform.” This conference will be a forum in which to talk about peace, share stories regarding how life changes through music, and the precedent set by peace talks in Cuba, Lebanon, United Kingdom, and South Korea.

    On June 6, a Cuban showcase will take place. Korean people may find the music unfamiliar, but through the music people will be able to share feelings and messages of peace and solidarity with one another.

    The event at Changdong Station’s plaza, which was remodeled last December, will also host the Peace Painting and Peace Coloring art installation programs at which artists and residents can collaborate in creating artwork together to promote peace.

    The DMZ Peace Train Music Festival 2019 International Conference & Cuba Showcase welcome any participants who agree with the value of “Music for Peace, Peace for the Future.” To participate in this event, visit the Naver reservation page at (https://booking.naver.com/booking/12/bizes/234851).
