Gonjiam Music FestivalPHILOSOPHY


Gonjiam Music Festival moves the concert stage out of the hall and into the open air where music lovers can delight in food and drink while roaming the grounds, enjoying a new experience with world class artists.

It is an open air classical musical festival for the modern age — a new lifestyle paradigm where music, people, and nature meet.


A Renaissance for the Korean city of Gwangju in Gyeonggi Province ushered in by a cultural exchange between Swiss, German, and Korean traditions through the meeting of acclaimed world stars, young artists, and the cultural patrons of the next generation.

Gonjiam Music Festival is a collaboration of the world’s top artists to learn about the lives and dreams of the next generation of artists and create a future through music. Music is an inspiration and the beautiful voice we cherish, for it enriches our lives and all others thereafter. As musicians we wish to share our role, our value, made together. This is the philosophy and goal of Gonjiam Music Festival.

As part of its cultural contribution, Gonjiam Music Festival will donate funds towards the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) for the treatment and research of juvenile diabetes.

곤지암 뮤직 페스티벌은 세계최고의 아티스트들과 다음세대 아티스트들이 함께하여 어린세대들의 꿈이되는 아티스트들의 삶과 음악을 배우고 함께 미래를 만들어가는 작업이기도 합니다. 음악은 우리들 삶의 감동이며 아름다운 소리이며 다음세대에게는 그들의 삶을 더욱 풍요롭게하는 가치입니다. 그리고 음악인으로서의 역할과 가치를 다하고 그것을 함께 나누며 만들어나가고자 합니다. 이것이 곤지암페스티벌의 철학이고 목표입니다.

곤지암 뮤직 페스티벌은 문화공헌사업의 일환으로 페스티벌 수익금을 세계당뇨병연합 International Diabetes Federation(IDF)의 소아당뇨병 치료및 연구를 위한 후원기금으로 기부합니다.
