Spring is here which means that party season is about to begin! In the music world, the live circuit goes into full swing with many local bands starting up their performance season. Blue Turtle Land front man Jae Hong An shares the band’s excitement in their first live show this year, taking place at Club Freebird on Saturday April 9. Go happy, go Hippy at the one and only Happy Hippy Party!

– What kind of event is it?

It’s the first Happy Hippy Party of the year which also welcomes the beginning of Spring. The main theme is everybody dresses up as flowers as partygoers come to enjoy the one and only most psychedelic party in South Korea. We recommend that everyone experiments with some of the more dramatic decorations as the bands and DJs will also be dressed up!

– Who is playing? What kind of music?

The first half of the night will be taken care of by psychedelic rock bands such as my own outfit, Blue Turtle Land. Bands will be playing through the night from 11pm until 5am. Other artists include Psytrance DJs such as Psytonic, Insertcoin, Trippy, JaHero and Yul, who will make sure people stay in tune with that psychedelic vibe the party provides.

– Tell us more about the venue –

Club Freebird is one of the most well-known and popular live/DJ clubs in Hongdae. The club holds just over a few hundred people which is more than enough to capture that intimate party vibe. The interior of the club also goes well with the Happy Hippy’s psychedelic theme with a range of colors and lighting that complements this. Happy Hippy’s additional psychedelic decorations will also include black lighting and ethnic tie dye fabrics around the venue to help fulfil that psychedelic visualisation we have

– Why should we go?

There is no other psychedelic music and arts party like the Happy Hippy party in South Korea. The solid union of live bands and DJs create an unique psychedelic vibe which give all the hippies and psychedelic party lovers such an unforgettable night.

Come and experience great psychedelic pleasure alongside the sweet tunes from the live bands and DJs at our Hippy Happy evening.
