stages of the competition. Shortlisted preliminary finalists can look forward to an
ultimate chance to visit Korea to experience the Korean culture and have the chance to

Returning for the 4th year running, the KBS K-Pop World Festival (Singapore Preliminaries)
is set to take centre stage as a stand alone event, at Our Tampines Hub on 5th August

cover songs during their performances. The winners of the performance category are then
required to submit a separate audio recording of their vocals for the international judging
process. While there is no restriction on the number of members for performance groups, it
is strongly recommended that they have the same number of members as the original
K-Pop band that they are covering.

Under the vocal category, there is no limit to the number of vocalists per act. However KBS
reserves the right to remove any vocalist from the subsequent rounds if they are deemed to
not be of significant contribution to the team. Vocal acts are now given the option to have
up to 2 additional backup dancers to spice up their performance.

Interested participants may register their interest via our official website from now till 6th
July.

Auditions will be held over two days from 8th-9th July. Thereafter, shortlisted applicants will
be invited to battle it out live on stage at the Singapore Preliminary of the K-Pop World
Festival 2017, where the top two acts (chosen from both Vocals and Performance categories
combined) will move on to participate in the next round of online judging, representing
Singapore in the competition against their international counterparts.
