Singapore, 12 October — The wheels of the Sundown Festival Seoul’d Out 2009 are set in motion. Come 12 December, this bi-annual concert series organised by Red Spade Entertainment will gather some of the most interesting musicians and entertainers from around Asia.
Featuring world-class music and dance acts hailing from Seoul, South Korea, Sundown Festival Seoul’d Out 2009 is a mega one-night only rain-or-shine event that will be held at Fort Canning Green at Fort Canning Park and is set to attract more than 7,000 audiences.
Sundown Festival Seoul’d Out 2009 will open in dramatic style with a percussion performance by Korean Musical Miso, the first of nine acts and prelude to a vibrant, fascinating four-hour worth of pumped-up performances.
The fringe shows will then be followed by an adrenaline-driving performance by a surprise deejay and guest. The next hour sees the beginning of a star line up of soloists, such as the hugely popular “My Girl” Mario and Ji Su Lee, the 23-year-old musical genius who has been featured prominently in regional and international music television channels, song charts and Korean film soundtracks.
All that, and to top it off are a rambunctious cast of group acts like T-Max, Brown Eyed Girls and F.T. Island, without which the night’s rock-steady Korean affair won’t be accomplished.
Organiser Red Spade Entertainment, which has concerted events for the likes of Asian Civilisations Museum and National Arts Council, is pulling all the stops to make Seoul’d Out 2009 a complete cultural exchange that’s great for all ages and levels of interest; audience can look forward to a carnival of all things Korean. The carnival will showcase various artistic and lifestyle activities, including a food village alongside the main stage that’s guaranteed to gratify your craving for authentic Korean Dong Dae Mun street fare such as rice cakes, yogurt and barbecued meats.
“Much of the credit goes to our sponsors, supporters and individuals who have contributed to Sundown Festival, to make our inaugural outing possible. The added cultural value, thanks to the fringe activities and food village, on top of the entertainment, helps give Seoul’d Out 2009 the variety as well as encapsulates the dynamism of Sundown Festival series. We hope it places Singapore at the forefront of cultural, music and entertainment innovation,” says Seoul’d Out 2009 programme director. “Whether or not you’re a Seoul-phile, you’ll enjoy the experience at this first ever all-Korean event in Singapore.”
