Valley Rock Festival, also known as the Ansan or Jisan Valley Rock Festival, is held the last weekend of July. The festival usually takes place at a ski resort has grown to include more and more world-famous acts since it began in 2009. Of course, there are a huge amount of Korean artists as well, but the headliners tend to be some of the most famous acts around.

Bands from the past include The Cure, The XX, Gorillaz, Major Lazer, Lorde, Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Twenty One Pilots. Similar to the Pentaport Festival the Valley Rock Festival is held in the wild outdoors, with many of the attendees choosing to camp out for the whole event. The energy and vibe at the festival are of the friendly sort you will only find at a Korean music festival.
