Yoon Do-hyun Band to Perform at 2007 SXSW Festival

2007/03/07 | Permalink | Source

YB (Yoon Do-hyun Band) will participate in the SXSW (South By Southwest) Festival in Austin, Texas, U.S.A. March 14 through 18 (local time) and will sing at Maggie Mae's Club in Austin on March 17 at 8:30 p.m.

YB's manager, Daeum Entertainment Co., Ltd., said, "YB was invited as a representative of Korean popular singers by the creative director of SXSW, who was deeply impressed with YB's music presented to the international music exhibition Midem at the Cannes in France last January".

YB held a solo concert at the B.B King Club in New York, U.S.A. last November and toured Europe in 2005. Yoon Do-hyun promised that he would enchant worldwide audiences with characteristic Korean emotions, and that it is a worldwide music festival that is quite different from concerts he used to hold. Yoon and his troupe will hold their own concerts at Seattle and Los Angeles on March 23 and 25 on their way back home.

SXSW is an international event comprising both music and movie festivals simultaneously. At the SXSW movie festival slated for March 9~17, the Korean movie "I'm a Cyborg, But That's OK" directed by Park Chan-wook will be shown as the finale. The music festival slated for March 14~18 will facilitate music industry and business activities, and world class major music industries such as SONY, EMI and Universal are expected to participate.
