It's happening!!! ... a celebration of summer, sun, fun, nature and music!
2nd - 3rd August, 2003
What is it?
'Ethos' ... is a free outdoor summer dance and performance event. It begins on the evening of the 2nd of August, allowing you to dance through the night to greet the sunrise, then into the Anmyundo Beach Festival festivities.
It is held in conjunction with the support of the Anmyundo City Council
Why have it?
Our inspiration for the party was inspired by the
growth of the and International electronic
dance music scene. Then along came summer with all
it's heat and humidity.
You're probably longing for a summer party, dancing
somewhere different for a change, getting outdoors,
amongst clean fresh air, surrounded by nature.
We are too; so the drive to combine great local talent,
in a beautiful setting was born: Ethos.
What's in it for you?
An opportunity for you to leave the frantic pace of
Seoul behind and experience something different.
Slip off your shoes and dance on the beach, relax, watch
and get involved in some performance arts and visual
entertainment, leave your city life behind you, if only for a
weekend, and escape into a different style of living.
