Dal Shabet, one of K-pop's most popular girl groups and more than a dozen of Singapore's hottest stars and deejays will be performing at the Nanyang Technological University's fiesta at the Marina Bay Promontory next month.

Open to the public, the free concert on Aug 29 is part of NTU Fest 2015, the university's biggest student-run event. Comprising a day-long carnival, charity run and evening concert, the mega event marks the start of NTU's new academic year and is part of the university's celebration of the nation's Golden Jubilee.

Dal Shabet is slated to perform some of their most popular songs at NTU Fest, including Joker, the title track from their latest EP Joker Is Alive, which has garnered more than 4.4 million views on YouTube since April this year.

 

Launching the concert in the evening is Mr Heng Swee Keat, Minister for Education and Chairman of the Singapore50 (SG50) Steering Committee, who is expected to perform a National Day song, joined by the finalists of this year's The Final 1.

Three of the Eight Dukes of Caldecott Hill - Shane Pow, Jeffrey Xu, and Zhang Zhen Huan - will lend their star power for the occasion.

Actors Elvin Ng, Jeffrey Xu and Zhang Zhen Huan will be joined by actress Rebecca Lim on stage.

The young cast of Channel 5 drama, Tanglin, including Nat Ho, Eswari Gunasagar, Elfaeza Ul Haq, Charlie Goh and Jae Liew will also be sharing the spotlight with their Channel 8 counterparts.

In addition to the Korean and local stars, homegrown band District 12 will also be performing that evening.

Carnival promises fun for all

Earlier in the afternoon, Education Minister, Mr Heng Swee Keat will flag off the 500m kid's run.

The carnival booths run by NTU students and vendors feature a variety of cuisines, games and fun activities for all ages.

The Straits Times, the event's Gold Media Partner, will also have a booth at the NTU Fest carnival.

NTU students will also showcase their diverse creativity and talent on stage in the afternoon, alongside local pop bands ORANGECOVE and The Paragoei.

This is the second year that NTU Fest is being organised. Last year's inaugural event at the Padang was a success, attracting more than 8,000 people and featured a slew of celebrities and headline acts - K-pop stars Running Man's Kang Gary and singer Jung In.
