Patrick Connor (DOINDIE, South Korea)

PatrickConnorDOINDIESouthKorea

DOINDIE (www.doindie.co.kr) started life in 2013 as a bilingual independent indie music webzine in Seoul. Among other things we provide exclusive content including interviews, recorded live sessions, shows listings, articles, band / venue profiles and much more. More recently we have started a new brand called Highjinkx (www.highjinkx.com). Through Highjinkx we run international shows and tours (so far we have hosted shows for Joss Stone, Mitski, Julien Baker, Hippo Campus and more) and book bands for some festivals and events in Korea. Most recently we secured the contract to book acts for Busan International Rock Festival (www.busanrockfestival.com). Through Highjinkx we run a project called Focus Asia (that aims to introduce the best talent from around Asia to the Korean market) and a tour exchange project that so far has seen bands from the UK and Korea take part in extensive tour swaps over the last few years. Finally we run a small label called Beeline Records (www.beelinerecords,com) through which we manage a couple of local artists and help international acts with digital distribution in Korea. In short, we do a bit of everything.
