The World DJ Festival will be held three times this year, from the end of April to early June.

The annual EDM festival will feature 170 acts over the three shows, said BEPC Tangent, the festival’s organizers, on Tuesday.

A pre-concert will be held at Jamsil Olympic Stadium in southern Seoul on April 30, to coincide with the ABB FIA Formula E Championship.

The first main festival will follow on May 30 and 31 at Seoul Land, an amusement park in Gwacheon, Gyeonggi, from 2 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. The second main festival is scheduled at the same location on June 6 and 7.

Tickets go on sale at WeMakePrice beginning Tuesday. They start at 99,000 won ($85.77), and are open to those aged over 18.

The festival has been attended by 800,000 people over the past 13 years, according to the agency, with last year’s concert drawing around 120,000 people, according to a police count at the time. DJs such as Odesza, Above and Beyond, Justice, Avicii and Poter Robinson have performed over the past four years.

This year’s lineup will be announced soon, the agency said.
