The Pentaport Rock Festival is a rock festival in South Korea. It is held each year in Incheon for three days in the last week of July.[1] Bands from many genres of music perform.

The name of this festival comes from five philosophical themes of the festival: music, passion, the environment, DIY (Do it yourself), and friendship. The festival started in 2006[2] and has many well-known musicians perform. The 2006 festival had Jason Mraz and The Black Eyed Peas. In 2007, L'Arc-en-Ciel and Muse performed at the festival. Ellegarden and Travis played in 2008. In 2012 the headliners were Manic Street Preachers, Snow Patrol and Baekdoosan.
