Sundown Festival 2009
Started in 2009, the first Sundown Festival Seoul’d Out! was held at Fort Canning Green at Fort Canning Park. Sundown Festival Seoul’d Out! 2009 attracted thousand to attend. It was more than just a concert, it was a celebration of all things Korean from food to cultural performances to fashionable music acts.
Featuring world-class music and dance acts all the way from South Korea, the concert started in a dramatic style with percussion performance by Miso Korean Musical that not only showcased the world culture heritage of Traditional Korean narrative song, but also presents a variety of other traditional instruments and the beautiful Korean Fan Dance. There were also fringe shows such as the Drawing Show and performances from the River Crew-B*Boys.
With a line up of soloists, such as Mario and Lee Ji Su who are both featured prominently in Korean film soundtracks. It marked the start of a night with well-known Korean songs. Famous K-Pop groups like T-Max, Brown Eyed Girls and F.T Island then took over the stage with their top hits.
Alongside the main stage, a food village serving authentic Korean Dong Dae Mun street food was set up to introduce and satisfy the cravings for Korean street snacks. With all the perfect line-ups for the night, Sundown Festival Seoul’d Out! 2009 serves as a great complete cultural exchange to all. Look forward to our next update on Sundown Festival 2010 soon!
