In addition, 25 participants will be given MAMA Special Edition Beats headsets, gift sets and many more.
MAMA organizers said, “We have prepared an event to actually hear the voices of fans who love K-pop and to bring them together as one. Since this will be an unprecedented event that offers people a chance to enjoy a large scale performance by their favorite artists in real life and a magnificent opportunity to get up on the same stage, we look forward to see fans from home and abroad participate.”
The 2011 MAMA will open its curtains on November 29th at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, Singapore’s most prominent performance venue. Korean artists leading the K-pop wave along with artists from Asia and other parts of the world will be on stage for a spectacular finale music event of the year.
