    Asia’s largest music extravaganza ─ the 2010 Asia Song Festival ─ will light up the Jamsil Olympic Stadium on Saturday, as the region’s top music stars gather in Korea’s capital to put on outstanding performances.

    The 2010 Asia Song Festival marks its seventh anniversary this year. The program, which begins at 6:30 p.m., has been titled “Let’s go! G20 Concert” in time for the Group-of-20 leaders meeting taking place in Seoul from Nov. 11 to 12.

    Asia’s largest music festival featuring the region’s top artists will share music of hope to the world for this year’s concert jointly organized by Seoul City, the Korea Foundation for International Culture Exchange and United Nations Children’s Fund.

    Twelve hit artists from six Asian countries will take the stage to capture and dazzle the audience. The annual event plays an invaluable role in strengthening cultural exchanges between the countries and thus invigorating the region’s music industry. With Seoul City at the forefront of this lofty event this year as the first Asian nation to host the meeting of G20 leaders, the Korean capital said it is exerting the utmost effort to elevate the city’s perception to the international community. Seoul City said it also plans to establish the capital as the hub of Asia’s culture industry.

    Korean pop music stars BoA and Rain are expected to put on an adrenaline-rushing explosive performance, while the ballad group AM is expected to provide a soothing, yet inspiring one.

    Other leading artists from each of the participating major Asian countries will also mesmerize the audience. They include Sun nan and Yan Kun of China, Ayumi Himasaki of Japan, Leon Lai of Hong Kong and F4 of Taiwan.

    The finale of the concert will feature a heart-warming performance of the “Let’s go” song by almost all of the stars who participated in the Let’s Go campaign in honor of a successful G20 Summit.
