Drawing fans from all across Southeast Asia, Sundown Festival turns Marina Promenade into an Asian music and cultural central for an eight-hour long celebration- completed by an Asian street food village supported by leading food portal in Singapore, Hungrygowhere.com-establishing itself as a must-see event.
Tickets (Cat 1 at $138 and Cat 2 at $98, Early Bird Tickets at $68 are sold out) for this live music event are on sale on SISTIC and pay no booking fee at www.sundownfestival.sg
K-pop fanatics can expect a sugar rush from the sweet yet fiercely adorable angels of Ace of Angels (AOA) a truly unique versatile music group that interchange between a five-member female band and a seven-member idol group. All eight members from AOA will be making their full appearance at the festival. So, expect to see both AOA Black and AOA White in their best performances.
Red Spade Entertainment says, "The unique proposition of Sundown Festival as the only annual music festival in southeast Asia to unite Asian music and culture speaks volumes of Singapore's strong reputation as a centre for creativity and innovation in the region."
Aside from music and entertainment festival goers can also expect a tasting of street food sourced from all the eight Asian countries and mini cultural performances such as "the barong" (storytelling dance form) from Indonesia, Tinikling B-boys (a mix of traditional pre-Spanish tap dancing with bamboo poles and breakdancing) from the Philippines and muaythai from Thailand.
Undoubtedly the largest Asian music festival: Sundown
"Year five of Sundown Festival is a milestone," said Samantha Chan, director of the Festival.
"We have set a simple goal: to bring the burgeoning stars in Asian rock and pop music together for the best show in the region, a show that the world can only see in Singapore. And that is exactly what we have done; these acts we have brought in this year will rock your socks off, bring pride to being Asian and prove once again, there is no place more exciting than Singapore's Marina Promenade this 16th November," added Chan.
