“Enjoy from the Comfort of Your Home!” Incheon Airport ON-TACT Performances

Flowers blossom and smiles bloom despite COVID-19. As people gather physically less, different types of interactions for communication are materializing these days.

The sudden outbreak of COVID-19 was a crisis that caused the fear of emptiness in Incheon Airport, which was loved for its year-round performances and variety of cultural and art programs. As performances came to a halt, musicians lost the stage to perform and passengers lost the experience of relaxation that can only be found in the airport.

How did Incheon Airport respond? We are turning crisis into “opportunity.”

Incheon Airport has planned standalone stages for musicians on which they can sing for their fans around the world, including the 75,000 subscribers of Incheon Airport’s YouTube Channel, and offer performances to console and cheer up people who are having a difficult time due to COVID-19.

They are Incheon International Airport ON-TACT Cultural and Art Performances! Combining the words, “Online” and “Untact,” Incheon Airport is hosting online non-face-to-face performance events. Let’s take a look at the appeal of these untact performances held online, Incheon Airport’s effort to connect musicians and people.

From Insooni to BewhY… Line-up Tailored to Different Tastes!

Incheon International Airport ON-TACT Cultural and Art Performances were held in two parts for 3 months, from June to August, on Incheon Airport’s official YouTube channel.

If you miss an off-line performance, you can’t see it again. But you can see an ON-TACT performance again whenever you want, right? Now, if you visit Incheon International Airport’s official YouTube channel, you can watch performances from 20 teams through this ON-TACT event!

“I hope everyone has one good day after another. I hope COVID-19 will end soon thanks to the healthcare providers and volunteers who are working hard to eradicate the virus. For that day, I pray that we can travel from Incheon Airport while doing what we need to do together and keeping everybody safe.”
