"Thanks to the encouragement and support from the public and government as well as the efforts of the over 40,000 people working in the airport, Incheon International Airport won the title as the best airport for ASQ for nine years in a row and is now celebrating its 13th anniversary," said Acting President Choi Hong-yeol of the Incheon International Airport Corporation. "I hope this year's special Orchestra Festival, which was organized in an attempt to reciprocate the love we have received, will be enjoyed as a festival full of the vitality of spring." He added, "We will continuously strive to provide top-quality premium cultural services that surpass the expectations of our visitors."

The Millennium Hall stage on the ground floor of the passenger terminal where the performances will be held was decorated under the theme of 'Gallery in a Garden'. The beautiful landscaping harmonizes with the exquisite art works, drawing attention of visitors. At present, Millennium Hall is exhibiting 'I'm Pine', an installation work of sculptor Song Woon-chang who attracted the attention of the international art world as his work in Imjingak Pyeonghwanuri Park was selected as Korea's representative artwork. This stage gallery will continue to exhibit the works of various artists each season.

Incheon Airport is positioning itself as a leading "culture-port" by organizing various cultural facilities and programs along the main traffic paths of passengers in transit as well as those arriving and departing. The 12 cultural facilities and programs include year-round cultural performances such as 'A Walk of the Royal Family' parade, the Korean Traditional Culture Center, Korean Culture Street, a media wall and craft exhibition centers offering a range of Hallyu ("Korean wave") content representing both the past and present of Korea. Offering as many as 7,400 cultural performances a year, Incheon Airport is receiving favorable responses from airport visitors and even local residents who do not have many opportunities to enjoy art and culture in everyday life.
