Party on when the sun goes down

The J-pop and K-pop stars align in this one-day music extravaganza on July 31.

It’s a not-to-be-missed event as Sundown Festival returns for the second year, to create an even bigger ripple on the island of Sentosa with a whole host of world-class music acts from Korea and Japan.

The star-studded lineup features both rising superstars and industry veterans like After School (South Korean all-girl band) and F.CUZ (South Korean all-boy band), who made their debuts in 2009. They’ll be arriving on our shores eager to prove they’re not just pretty faces without a shred of talent. Prepared to be blown away by their energetic dance moves and boppy vocals.

F.CUZ

Two of Japan’s revered rock bands formed since 2006 will also be performing. SuG, whose claim to fame was being part of the visual kei movement in Japan, has now gone mainstream with their recent signing to major label Pony Canyon. Come withness the band’s signature ‘Heavy Positive Rock’.

L.M.C.

L.M.C., a ‘New Century Electrock’ duo comprising of Maya and Aji (vocals and guitar respectively), has had fans mesmerized for years by their unique sound and visuals. They’ve performed many sellout concerts and consistently score chart-topping record sales both locally and internationally, L.M.C. is the perfect testament that good music knows no boundaries. Don’t miss their electrifying debut in Singapore.

Wrapping up the lineup is dramatic Tenko, a Japanese Taiko drumming group that introduces different styles of playing using inventive instruments, as well as showcasing the traditional dances of Satokagura or Ohayashi with different masks.

On top of the music extravaganza, festival-goers can also expect to enjoy the very best in Asian fashion and Harajuku street fashion during the parades.

If you can’t wait till the festival itself to catch a glimpse of your music idols, you can also go to the airport on July 29 to greet them when they touch down in Singapore, or come by the Garden Plaza at IMM on July 30 for the fans’ meet-n-greet session.
