Sundown Festival is a highly-acclaimed annual event designed to promote Asia's music scene. This year, it welcomed five regional artistes from South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and China. Spanning over four hours with a marathon of melodies and dance performances, almost 7000 concertgoers went on hype last Saturday night at the Marina Promenade.
South Korean seven-member boyband, BtoB (Born to Beat) kicked off Sundown Festival 2012 at around 8.30 p.m. The crowd immediately put on their dancing shoes when BtoB performed a myriad of up-tempo songs like Born to Beat, Secret, Irresistible Lips, My Girl and Don't Know Anything but Love.
Female fans screamed excitedly as the young boys approached the edge of the stage, greeting fans in both Chinese and English. BtoB ended their performance with their sleek dance moves for Intro + Wow, a catchy tune from their second mini album, Press Play.
Next up was 26-year-old Taiwanese-American singer Anthony Neely. Anthony mesmerized the crowd when he sang ballad tunes Sorry That I Loved You and Dear Death. The night reached a new high when the charismatic singer performed his popular rock songs, Wake Up and Brawl. He also had a heartwarming sing-along session when he performed The Last Embrace.
Jeno Liu, who was dressed in an attractive sequined outfit, took over the performing baton. The former Super Girls contestant hit the high notes effortlessly when she sang her latest singles Journey, Relationship and a repertoire of smash hits Stardom, Tears of Laughter and I Am What I Am.
