Mass Games to Return for 2020 North Korean Tours

We’ve confirmed from our numerous sources within Pyongyang the Mass Games will make another comeback this year starting for the 75th Anniversary celebrations of Liberation Day held on the 15th of August and will be showing weekly until the 75th Anniversary of Party Foundation Day held on the 10th of October.

What is the Mass Games?

First performed in 2002, the Arirang Mass Games feature over 100,000 participants in a 90-minute display of gymnastics, dance, acrobatics, and dramatic performance. This, together with music and other effects, all comes together wrapped in a highly politicized and synchronized package. It also features the ‘largest picture in the world’ – a giant mosaic of 18,000 students each holding a book whose pages link with their neighbours to make up one gigantic scene.
