Valley Rock Festival (also known as VRF) is held annually on the last weekend of July. Sharing many artists, the festival is arranged by 9 Ent, which is Smash Corporation, and in close coordination with Japanese Fuji Rock Festival. In 2009 on the festival’s maiden year, there were some controversies regarding the festival's split from neighboring Pentaport Rock Festival.[1] However the festival’s sponsor changed to Mnet media in 2010 and CJ E&M in 2011. VRF has been successful and has grown into one of the South Korea’s biggest music festivals.

LocationEdit

VRF had taken place at Jisan Valley Ski Resort, in Icheon, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea. So it had been called JVRF. The resort is in Icheon for the administrative district; however, it is closer to Yongin. And VRF is held in Daebu Sea Breeze Theme Park located in Daebudo, Ansan, Gyeonggi Province.

Festival groundsEdit

There are three stages at the festival. The first stage is a Big Top Stage that is a main stage outside. Headliners perform on that stage. Another stage is a Green Stage that is smaller than the Big Top Stage. There is also an Open stage for amateur singers.

Buying ticketsEdit

Tickets to the festival are restricted to four tickets per person. Ticket sales are divided into three phases. The first phase of ticket sales, called Early Bird, is without announcements. That sale is on the Internet usually starting in February. Headliners and other musicians are notified gradually until the third phase of ticket sales. They sell three days passes and day tickets. They do not sell day tickets at first and camping is not available for day tickets. There are also ticket booths on that day. Disabled people get discounts up to 50% off.

AccommodationEdit

Most people who stay at the festival camp in a tent.

Organization (Events in Festival)Edit

Catering, and some retail services are provided by various small companies, typically mobile catering vans, with food stalls on site. From 2010 on, people at the festival can only buy goods or food with T-money cards.
