What’s up for this year’s lineup?

Music Matters 2011 – Crying Nut & Aziatix

Last year Korean acts such as Korea’s iconic rock band Crying Nut and Korean-American project group AZIATIX (read our exclusive interview with them here) performed at the festival, but this year it is just going to get better.

Music Matters 2012 – BTOB, Tiger JK, Yoon Mirae, DJ Clazzi, J’Kyun, M.I.B

This year’s lineup includes Cube Entertainment‘s hottest new boy group BTOB (Born To Beat), who made their debut just about a month ago with the song “Insane”, and is already making waves in the entertainment scene. Singapore fans will be happy to know that ahead of everyone else around the world, this will be BTOB’s first ever overseas performance!

Also, a few of Korea’s biggest hip-hop names – Tiger JK and Yoon Mirae will also be performing in Singapore for the first time, together with M.I.B, DJ Clazzi and J-Kyun. It sure sounds like a great show!

Performance Schedule


Korean Night will be held on the 24th of May, at the Fountain Square, featuring all the Korean artists.
