2022 Water Bomb Festival
WaterBomb festival just finished their first weekend in Seoul with raving reviews about the performances. The Festival is a mix of a music festival and a water park. The goal is to escape the hot city and your everyday life and enjoy music, friends, and to spray your favorite idols with water. It is hosted in a variety of cities across Korea including Seoul, Daegu, Busan, Incheon, and Suwon with a performances by some of the hottest K-POP stars. Just last weekend they hosted Zico, Jay Park, and CL as the headlining performances, along with many other amazing artists. I believe the concert is sold out for this year but it never hurts to double check on their website! Tickets generally start around 132,000 Korean Won or $100 and you must be 19 in Korean age or born before 2003 to be able to attend the festival.
This is a really cool interactive experience and has become extremely popular since it was first held in 2015. They haven't been able to host the festival in two years due to COVID, so they are really coming in strong this year. Along with music performances they have a water huge fight, waterbomb time, a tropical lounge, and a VVIP lounge for those feeling fancy.

# How to Purchase Tickets for the Future
I believe that tickets for this year are already sold out but to learn how to purchase tickets in the future here is some insight.
Tickets can be purchased through their online website using Naver, WeMakePrice, Ticketlink, or InterPark. You can choose to receive your ticket through their app, shipped, or picked up on the day of the festival. You will need to have a Korean phone number and ARC to purchase online, however if you are going with a Korean friend you can ask if they wouldn't mind purchasing the tickets for the both of you. Keep in mind though that the resale of tickets in Korea is illegal and if you need to cancel or receive a refund you can do so. Please see their cancellation policy here, this may slightly vary depending on which service you purchase the tickets through.
