As the saying “Music is the universal language of mankind” goes, Sundown Festival 2013 proved that one does not need to know an artiste's language by heart to enjoy their music.
True enough, the eight-hour long fiesta at the Marina Promenade last night was a pleasant and unrivaled gathering of ten outstanding acts (mostly rock bands) from eight different Asian countries (Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Indonesia, Philippines and Thailand), namely SCREW, D=OUT, AOA, Bosco Wong, Yoga Lin, Adonia Shao, Nidji, Rico Blanco, Rock Steddy and No More Tear.
Apart from rock and roll, the fifth annual event also included ear-pleasing ballads and catchy dance tunes. Kicking off the festival with fans grooving along with them were Filipino trio Rock Steddy, followed by Thailand pop-rock quartet, No More Tear.
