About the NTU Fest

Organised by Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Students' Union, the NTU Fest is a day-long event that will take the place of the usual freshmen orientation camp this year.

It marks the end of the Freshmen Welcome Week and raises money for needy students at the Institute of Technical Education, through ticket sales from a 4.8km run and a carnival.

Held on the Padang today, the NTU Fest will also hold a concert in the evening featuring student bands and MediaCorp artists.

Highlights of the event include performances by popular Korean rapper Kang Hee Gun and K-pop singer Jung In. Kang, better known as Kang Gary, is also a regular cast member of the popular variety show Running Man.

Event organiser Wu GuoYi, 22, had said in a previous report that an NTU board trustee brought Kang in for the event through his contacts. The undergraduate had met the trustee while fund-raising for the event.
