The first outdoor festival, ‘Beautiful Mint Life 2021,’ to be held after 1 year and 8 months, is approaching next week.
This is the first large-scale popular music performance after the government announced the social distancing reform plan on June 11.
The most notable point of the reorganization plan is the number of people entering the concert hall. Instead of less than 100 people, it was expanded to a maximum of 4,000. The issue of equity that has been continuously raised concerning other performance genres is resolved. So, people expect that there will be progress in the popular music industry, which has been stagnant for a while.
In response, Mint Paper, the organizer of ‘Beautiful Mint Life,’ said, ‘It is a grateful decision for the agencies who were preparing for the event amidst anxiety. I know that easing the rules does not mean the end. We are preparing with a greater responsibility than ever before.”
In fact, Mint Paper announced various operation plans along with the announcement of the opening of ‘Beautiful Mint Life.’ They collected additional inquiries and answers from the audience and posted them on the official website and social media. The organizers said, “As this is an unprecedented site, the audience can understand the operation plan to ensure a smooth and safe process. To this end, we are constantly devising measures to communicate various rules and minimize inconvenience to the audience clearly.”
In fact, this year’s ‘Beautiful Mint Life’ performance starts about 4 hours later than before. It is with the consideration of the time that audiences will spend on-site. But, the performance time of individual artists is similar to previous years. It is the organizer’s decision considering both the convenience of the audience and the purpose of the visit.
The performance industry is also looking at the progress of ‘Beautiful Mint Life’ with interest. According to the official, the organizers’ efforts from the planning stage will surely pay off with the government’s deregulation. This year’s ‘Beautiful Mint Life’ consists of a seating system with a distance between mats and chairs. It is without a single stage and standing zone to minimize the audience’s movement.
All audience members must go through a QR check and body temperature measurement before entering. After completing a self-diagnosis using a rapid antigen kit that allows you to check the results within 10 minutes, they can move to the concert hall. ‘Beautiful Mint Life’ is still the only domestic performance that applies this kit. Also, for all these processes, they will use the KSPO DOME building near the concert hall as a quarantine center. The organizers conveyed the goal, “We want to set a precedent that we can host a festival even in the era of Covid-19. We will set an industry standard that we can apply realistically.” They emphasized that active cooperation from the audience is essential for this.
The 3,000-seat first ticket, which opened on May 25, was sold out in one minute. It is due to the joy of the outdoor music festival ‘Beautiful Mint Life,’ which will occur for the first time since the outbreak of Covid-19, and expectations for a safe site. Attention focuses on how the event will express the operation plan they prepared on the actual site. So, it is attracting the attention of the public from its announcement to the actual event. People expect that the New Normal Era Festival, created by the audience, artists, staff, and the actions of Mint Paper and ‘Beautiful Mint Life,’ create the new standards.
Earlier, on June 8th, the organizers released a timetable containing the entire lineup of ‘Beautiful Mint Life.’
On Saturday, June 26th, singer-songwriter ‘Damons Year,’ recognized for delicate and unique vocals, and ‘The Solutions,’ a leader in domestic future pop, announced their joining. So, it is raising the expectations of music fans.
Also, the young sensational band ‘SURL,’ ‘Joon-il Jung,’ ‘Peppertones,’ music powerhouse ‘Lee Hi,’ and ‘Paul Kim’ are the Saturday’s artist lineup.
On Sunday, June 27th, the lineup includes the indie super rookie ‘Yebit’ and the winning team of JTBC ‘Super Band,’ ‘Hoppipolla.’
Besides, ‘Colde’ that crosses genres, ‘N.Flying,’ who released its first full-length album on June 7th and is active in various fields, and ‘Daybreak,’ the national band that does not stop challenging, are also in the lineup.
Then, Soran will decorate the last performance of ‘Beautiful Mint Life 2021.’
The audience cannot hide their anticipation for the outdoor stage in June, created by artists in various genres.
‘Beautiful Mint Life 2021’ will take place at Olympic Park from June 26 to 27. Currently, there are a small number of remaining seats available through Interpark and WeMakePrice.
