A song festival that became the debut stage for famous Korean singers

The 1970s was the period when representative music festivals of Korea began to emerge. Song festivals were a culture and a festival in Korea at the time.

After the Korean War in the 1950s, there were popular music listening rooms such as C'est si bon, but TV and radio were almost all means to inform the public of music. However, it was very difficult for a new singer to appear on TV and radio. In the 1970s, MBC broadcasting station in Korea made the debut stage for new singers by making "College Song Festival" and "Riverside Song Festival". As MBC's "University Song Festival" succeeded, another Korean broadcasting station, TBC, created "Beach Song Festival" and the era of the song festival began. Famous Korean singers Shin Hae-chul, Sim Soo-bong, Bae Chul-soo, and Koo Chang-mo are singers from the music festival. Currently, many music festivals disappear as music programs in which viewers directly participate come out.
