Vote for 2012 Ssamzie Sound Festival’s Hidden Masters


The Ssamzie Sound Festival is running on its 14th year and as usual lesser known bands get a chance to audition for a spot at the festival. In August all of the bands that made the top 40 were invited to perform four songs each in a theatre, two of which would be considered entries for the continued auditions. Accounting for 30% of the result, now it’s time for netizens to have their say after watching the videos from the performances – voting opened on Monday September 3rd and closes Wednesday September 12th. Which of the bands made the top 20 will be announced on September 13th.

The bands currently in competition are:

#: 21c Peterpans

C: Clumsy, Cranfield
E: ECE
F: Fellas
G: Gravity
H: Hologram Film, Hyangni
I: Igniter
