Chairman of CT Corp Chairul Tanjung planning to bring more idols K pop with a larger scale in 2023. This was conveyed at the grand launching press conference Hello Bank on Thursday (19/5).
“God willing, next year we will hold it at GBK and K-pop artists will be more massive, than NCT and Red Velvet,” said Chairul Tanjung at Istora Senayan, Thursday (19/5).
Not only that, Chairul Tanjung as the Ultimate Shareholder of Allo Bank Indonesia also hopes to bring “international artists and musicians”, apart from K-pop in the future.
This was stated before Hello Bank Festival 2022. In the event, a number of local musicians will appear to entertain visitors. Two K-pop idols, namely NCT Dream and Red Velvet will also be the main star of the Special Shows event held at Istora Senayan this weekend.
On this occasion, Allo Bank Indonesia Chief Experience Officer Cape Princess said the Allo Bank Festival will be the first international music festival in 2022, since the pandemic hit the last two years.
“So this is all in one festival. First in Indonesia. Not only music festivals but many other activities,” said Putri Tanjung.
The CEO of CXO media also revealed the reason for inviting NCT Dream and Red Velvet to enliven the Allo Bank Festival. According to him, it was all decided after conducting a survey of K-Popers in Indonesia first.
He also confirmed that the two idols under SM Entertainment would come directly to Istora Senayan to greet fans, not through recordings.
“From there, the names NCT Dream and Red Velvet appeared on the top list for names that K-Popers want to present in Indonesia,” said Putri Tanjung.
“So, we are very excited for Red Velvet and NCT Dream to be able to attend directly at the Allo Bank Festival. The first time announcewe thought it would be broadcast pre-record.”
The Allo Bank Festival will be held from Friday (20/5) to Sunday (22/5) at Istora Senayan, Jakarta.
