KBS Music Festival will focused solely on the artist’s performances and will have no more giving of awards this year.
As stated by KBS rep on Dec 8 “ “The ‘2014 KBS Music Festival’ will hold stages without any awards. We’ve invited 22 teams of artists who will perform their own songs as well as collaboration stages.”
KBS changed the name of its year-end ceremony from KBS Music Daesang to KBS Music Festival in 2006, after they removed the awards ceremony portion of the event.
Since 2009, they just handed one award, which is the “Song of the Year”. For this year end event, it is already taken out. Last year EXO won the title with the help of the votes of their fans sent during the live show via text “Grow”.
It came to a decision that it was named ‘festival” for everyone to feel free and enjoy the time being together watching the performances to end up this year with so much fun.
2014 KBS Music Festival will be on 26th at 8:30 PM kst.
