How to get from Seoul to Jinju Lantern Festival?

We'll be visiting Seoul next week, and are keen to get out to the Jinju Lantern festival as it looks amazing. Getting there, however, seems like a royal PITA, with googlemaps telling me 5 hours minumum each way, trains and busses. We can't speak Korean past a few words and don't read Hangol. Do you think this is doable for two tourists with limited to nonexistent language skills, or too much? [more inside]

Week-long pre-wedding camping/festival practicalities

I'm engaged to my wonderful partner, and we'll be getting married in her country (Sweden) with many of our friends and family travelling from my country (Australia). I'm sure they'll want to be there with us for more than a single night, and we want that too. I'd like to figure out if a collective 'summer camp' style thing is workable. [more inside]

Other Fire + Water events in US??

MeFi, you've saved me in the past, asking you to come through again! I'm trying to find events very similar to WaterFire Providence, can be but does not have to be "art" project, but am looking for festivals that feature pylons in rivers, ponds, lakes, bayou on fire. Trying to set one up down here in Louisiana but not finding too much in the way of how to get started or if these events exist outside of Providence, RI and Sharon, PA (the only two places I found that host WaterFire events). Thank you!

Nervous plus questions about going to a festival

We have priority tickets to go to the BST (British Summer Time) festival in Hyde Park this June.

Please tell me everything I need to know about the Sasquatch Music Festival!

I think I may be going to Sasquatch this year! I've never been - for that matter, I've never gone to any sort of music festival or even a concert bigger than a hundred people or so - so can any kindly souls out there give some tips or advice to a first-timer? I'm pretty clueless as a general rule so even the most basic of suggestions would be gladly appreciated, whether it's "if you hitchhike you will die" or "you will need to bring toilet paper" or "don't bother with a cell phone cause there's no reception out there" or "make sure not to miss this artist!" or anything else of the sort. My (pretty rough) plans and specific questions are under the fold... [more inside]
