“The Drummer” is a citizens’ drum competition held as part of the 19th Seoul Drum Festival, one of the representative festivals hosted by the Seoul Metropolitan Government. Participating citizens can show off their drum skills in the competition. Citizens of all age groups—from elementary school students to adults—can step up to the challenge in “The Drummer.” There are five contest categories: elementary school, middle school and high school grouped as students, and amateur and semi-pro grouped as adults.

The top 16 teams selected through the on-line preliminary and on-site final competitions will receive the Seoul Mayor's Award and various prizes.

Come and visit Malli-dong Square on May 21 to see the on-site final competition. You will not only appreciate the passionate performances by the skilled citizen drummers who passed the preliminary competition, but also see “Seoullo 7017,” a new sidewalk transformed from an overpass. It is sure to be a fine occasion for a spring outing with family, friends, and couples.

The festival was created in collaboration with Korean drum providers and manufacturers.
