The inaugural KAMP festival made its first stop in Singapore for 2 days on 9 & 10 November, with both days boasting a stellar line-up — (Day 1) AleXa, Chungha, Ha Sungwoon, GFRIEND and NCT 127; (Day 2) Momoland, Sonnet Son, WJSN, Stray Kids and Super Junior.
Fans got to interact with their favourite idols as they walked down the red carpet in the afternoon, before a whole night of performances at the Singapore Indoor Stadium – it was truly an unforgettable weekend. Here’s what you may have missed on Day 1:
The exciting night kicked off with the first act, GFRIEND – who treated the audience with an 8-song set. The girls performed fan-favourite “Fingertip”, before raising the energy of the crowd with “Navillera”, “Life Is A Party” and “Vacation”. They truly knew how to set the mood for the night.
Yerin and Eunha even showed their aegyo (cuteness) for the lucky audience that night!
GFRIEND changed up the atmosphere and performed a ballad version of their hit “Rough”, showcasing their powerful vocals. The audience was in awe whenever main vocalist, Yuju, hit her powerful high notes. The girl group ended off their set with “A Starry Sky”, “Fever” and “Time For The Moon Night”.
Former Produce 48 contestant, AleXa, made her strong debut on the Singapore stage with her debut single, “BOMB”, filling up the huge stage with her powerful dance moves and strong stage presence. At the red carpet, she encouraged everyone to add this upbeat song onto their workout playlists.
AleXa then busted out powerful dance covers of boy group numbers “DRAMARAMA” and “Warrior”, exuding confidence throughout the stadium. Despite having only just made her debut last month, AleXa proved that she is a force to be reckoned with.
Next up was Ha Sungwoon – who made his return to Singapore, but this time as a soloist. He performed his debut track “Bird”, followed by “Tell Me I Love You”, immediately captivating the crowd with his soothing vocals.
He continued his set with “Don’t Forget”, “Bluemaze”, refreshing tune “Blue”, and lastly “What are you doing today?!”. Despite being a solo act, Ha Sungwoon filled up the entire stage that night with his natural charms and good looks.
Dance queen Chungha took over the stage with her recent hit “Snapping”, showing off her amazing dance skills and power vocals. She exclaimed, “I always get the best energy in Singapore!”
Chungha got the entire audience singing along to “Gotta Go”, “Rollercoaster”, and her debut song “Why Don’t You Know” – songs proved to be loved by everyone, both fans and non-fans alike. The crowd went wild as Chungha ended off her set with “Bang Bang”, a performance in which she played a huge part creating the iconic choreography during her stint on Produce 101 back in 2016.
The last act for the night was NCT 127, kicking off their set with their hits “Fire Truck” and “Cherry Bomb”. Their perfectly synchronized dance moves and high energy proved why they receive so much love and attention not only in Singapore, but all around the world.
Just as we thought the cheers from the audience could not get any louder, NCTzens proved us wrong as their loud chants filled up the entire stadium when NCT 127 performed “Touch”, “Replay” and “Regular”. The sea of bright green light sticks, accompanied by the loud fan chants, was truly a sight that night.
“Even though we are not here (in Singapore), we will always be thankful, and we will always come back,” Mark said, before NCT 127 ended off the night with “Superhuman”.

The wait is finally over! For the past one month, the festival had been releasing and teasing the artiste line-up on their social media, and today (27 Jun) the organisers have confirmed more details such as the festival schedule and ticketing information. We will summarise everything into this page for your easy reference because it’s really extensive:
What is HallyuPopFest 2018?
HallyuPopFest is said to be the biggest K-pop music festival in South East Asia, and it will be staged in Singapore for the first time and over 3 days from 7 to 9 September 2018. The festival will feature over 100 K-pop idols, 111 to be exact, who will perform at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.
It will be hosted by Korean-American singer-songwriter Eric Nam, and daily activities range from Global Auditions in the morning and throughout the day, followed by Afternoon Showcases and Red Carpet, and ending off with the festival’s finale Evening Concert, which promised power-packed performances that will go on for at least 3 hours daily.
Who will be performing at the Festival?
The line-up is pretty amazing looking at the star-studded performer list, featuring Wanna One for two nights, as they are slated to prepare a different performance setlist for each night, and other headliners such as Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon, NCT 127, BTOB, Apink, Heize, EXID, and many more.
Fans can also look forward to up and coming groups such as UNB, Momoland, VICTON, Dreamcatcher, ONF and more, many of whom will be performing in Singapore for the first time. Check out the complete festival schedule below!
What are the Ticket Prices & Fan Entitlements?
There are five standard ticket categories ranging from Cat 1 to Cat 5 (Single day: From S$148 to $298 per day), and the ultimate Daebak! Pass premium tickets. All ticket holders (Cat 1 to Cat 5 and Daebak! Passes) will be entitled to FREE showcase entry aside from the evening concert, applicable for same day activities only.
EXAMPLE: If you purchase the Day 1 ticket (7 Sep), you will be entitled access to Day 1’s afternoon showcases and evening concert. Oh yes, Red Carpet* as well. That’s a pretty good steal. (*Note: Red Carpet will be open to the public too)
What about the Daebak! Pass?
Daebak! Pass belongs to the premium category where you can get access to all the fan entitlements that Cat 1 to Cat 5 ticket holders receive, and on top of that, Priority Access to the showcases & concerts, a Dedicated Daebak! VIP Standing zone (red carpet & evening concert), Hi-Touch and Group Photo opportunities, exclusive Daebak! lanyard & pass, and the exclusive goodie bag that comes with it. Prices are S$498 per day and passes are very limited as well — definitely not cheap but it’s really for those who can afford it. (On the looks of it, it’s kinda similar to KCON NY, but KCON is priced much higher for their Diamond/Platinum packages.)
Daebak! (in Korean) = Something Amazing/Awesome – So ticket holders of this premium category, you can expect really up-close interactions with your favourite idols at the festival!
What is the Global Auditions all about?
For the first time ever in Singapore and South East Asia, three of Korea’s biggest K-Entertainment companies – Cube Entertainment, Starship Entertainment and Jellyfish Entertainment will be partnering with HallyuPopFest to hold individual global auditions on different days of the festival.
If you are an aspiring singer/dancer/actor/actress, you may like to note that the Head of Recruitment from the respective agencies will personally be in town to search for budding talents in the region! This is a dream too good to be true, but yes IT IS TRUE. All ticket holders, regardless of the ticket category, will be entitled to register for all 3 days of auditions. Of course, you’ll have to practice hard and send in your audition video clip for a chance to be shortlisted for the actual auditions by the Korean Entertainment companies at HallyuPopFest.
(NOTE: Auditions will be held in the morning and throughout the day, closed-door. If you are a shortlisted applicant, you will hear from the event organisers on where and what time to report for the actual audition. Find out more on the auditions here.)
If you didn’t already know, the K-Entertainment companies house really notable and talented artistes like your favourite idols, such as:
Cube Entertainment: BTOB, HyunA, Jo Kwon, PENTAGON, CLC, Wanna One’s Lai Kuan Lin, (G)I-DLE, and more
Starship Entertainment: Soyou, MONSTA X, Boyfriend, K.Will, Jeong Sewoon, Yu Seungwoo, Cosmic Girls (WJSN), and more

Interesting To Know
Even though this inaugural festival will be held for the first time in Singapore and South East Asia, it is interesting to know that HallyuPopFest 2018 is curated by H.A.H. Entertainment, a homegrown firm backed with two decades of experience in the entertainment business.
The festival will also be produced by Flax & Co., who is the production company behind other notable music events such as the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic’s K-pop Concert, MBC’s ‘Asian Music Network @ DMC Festival’ as well as MU:CON 2017. Definitely sounds very promising ahead!
