Follow Laibach to North Korea

follow-laibach-to-north-koreaLaibach is going to North Korea! In August 2015, Laibach will perform in the secretive Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The concerts are currently scheduled for the 19th and 20th of August in Pyongyang. Laibach’s Liberation Day Tour will coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Korean peninsula’s liberation from Japanese colonization and subsequent division into two enemy states. The concerts will also be subject of a documentary film scheduled for premiere in 2016.

The concerts will take place in the Main Hall of the Kim Won Gyun Music Conservatory in the capital Pyongyang on August 19 and 20, seating up to 1000 per show.

Although their main mission is to give as many Koreans as possible the Laibach experience, they are also working hard to ensure that a certain number of foreign visitors, in the spirit of brotherhood and understanding between the peoples, will be welcome as well.

In any case, seats for foreign aliens will definitely be limited, so until further notice:
