This year, the event will be an even greater spectacle, showcasing a special lineup of artists and a bigger audience, according to JSW.

On Dec. 30, Korea’s popular R&B singer Wheesung, former 2NE1 member Sandara Park and popular Korean hip-hop duo Jinusean will hit the stage, raising expectations for group singalongs to a medley of hit songs.

The second day will stage female rapper Mirani, singers Hyorin, and Kim Jong-kook and hip-hop group Dynamic Duo which has enjoyed global popularity with the latest hit song “Smoke,” which went viral through a TikTok and Instagram challenge on the TV series “Street Woman Fighter 2.”

The event will also feature DJing performances by DJ Kite, DJ Mewloud on Dec. 30 and DJ Bass Drop on Dec. 31, as well as special fireworks show and street foods.
