Local indie band PHOON together with the star alumni and graduating students of the Higher Diploma in Digital Music and Media programme will perform during the live music show, with original songs composed by the graduating students to be featured. As a significant event gathering emerging music talents, the show is expected to kick-start a new wave of local music.
