Part of the beauty of a music festival is the chance to see all your favourite artists all in the same place, and sometimes all on the same day. Needless to say, the prospect of seeing their favourite K-pop artists at a festival have sparked many fan discussions over dream festival line-ups.

In an interesting new thread over on Reddit, K-pop fans got into a fascinating discussion what their ultimate K-pop festival line-up would be according to this format:

  • Who's the MC if you have one?

  • 1 [Opening Act]

  • 2 [2nd act]

  • 3 [3rd Act]

  • 4 [4th Act (Solo Collaboration slot)]

  • 5 [5th Act]

  • 5.5 [SURPRISE Appearance slot]

  • 6 [Closing Act]

With Reddit being the home to a large number of fans who have diverse tastes and interests, the answers were certainly very interesting.

Here are some of the dream K-pop festival line-ups as compiled by fans:

  • MC: Yoo Jae Suk - Ez choice
    Opening Act: BTS
    2nd Act: K.A.R.D
    3rd Act: EXO - so both fandoms don't complain that they weren't invited
    4th Act: Ailee ft. Yoon Mirae(Home)
    5th Act: IU
    5.5(Surprise) Act: SNSD - Can't get a bigger surprise than this.
