Website: http://www.hbcfest.com/
The 2015 HBC Fall Fest will take place on Friday, Saturday October 16th, and 17th In the two neighborhoods in Yongsan Gu known as ‘Hae Bang Chon’ and ‘Kyung Li Dan’. The HBC festival is ‘the’ expat music festival featuring over 100 live acts in housed in independent venues spread over four days, and it is the largest independent artist showcase in Korea. The festival first began in 2006 as a showcase for independent musicians, with that idea in mind it has continued to blossom with each new season.

A verifiable boost to the local economy, the small streets where the action happens is very famous as a local expat hangout. And the streets in the area have been even more popularized by MBC and by SBS for showcasing certain restaurants and the unique culture of the area for what is now a 'Yongsan' independent music festival. The unique part of the H.B.C. Fest in Korea, is it is made by independent people, that love to support and hear 'LIVE' music.

The festival has always swayed with the demands of both musicians and venues, and with that the size and scope of the festival has fluctuated through the years. Fall Music Festival 2015 sees the return of these venues Phillies, Bonny’s Pizza Pub, The Cave, Hidden Cellar, Genie Pub, Thunderhorse Tavern, Camarata Music Studio, Pet Sounds, Southside Parlor, , Craftworks, Kimchi Sounds, and adding to the mix; V-Lounge, Bedrock, Hair Of The Dog, and Maloney's Pub.

Street level acoustic performers will entertain the busy bars, while below ground a plethora of rock, alt-rock, funk, blues, R&B bands will keep the air vibrant until 1am. With shows starting from Oct 16th at 9pm until 12am and beginning again the next day Oct 17th from 3pm until 1am.

Additional supporting places for HBC Festival are: Jacoby’s Burgers, Casablanca Sandwiches, UnBuckle, Gogi Chip, Al Matto, and, Fat Cat deli. The festival is provided and paid for by the local businesses in order to give independent artists a place to play, and to rejuvenate the local economy in the area once again. While not every business in HBC/KLD area is a venue for live music, there are many who openly encourage the festival. These businesses can be clearly recognized by the HBC Fest posters in their windows, and the support they give to HBC Fest.

The HBC Festival is a DEELEEBOB Music Production, with Lance Reegan-Diehl being the central point between artists, venues and business owners. Music sponsors for the festival, that also endorse Lance Reegan-Diehl as an Artist, include Sound Drive Amplifiers, Graphtech, Swing Guitars, Olympia Strings and Straps, along with all participating business owners in the Hae Bang Chon, and Kyung Li Dan area.

Lance will also be performing at the Music Messe in China on October 14th and 15th for Swing Guitars and Olympia strings right before his festival kicks off in Seoul Korea. He will be flying in to administer and setup the fest.

“The festival would not be a success without the perseverance of indie musicians out there, and the open mind and support of the local business owners that I have in this area.” says Reegan-Diehl. “I hope for future that more owners and musicians see a benefit to supporting the Festival and the efforts of my company DEELEEBOB Music.”

The festival begins on Friday October 16th with the music starting at 9pm to around midnight. Saturday the 17th is an entire day of music from 2pm until 1am with 20 plus venues and over 100 performances.
