The 7th anniversary of the Asia Song Festival, will be called “Let’s Go G20 Concert” to commemorate Seoul hosting the G20 Summit. The concert will be co-sponsored by the Korea Foundation for International Culture Exchange, the city of Seoul, and UNICEF, with the support of the G20 preparation committee and of course, the Ministry of Culture, and honorarily chaired by Jackie Chan.
