Synchronize Fest 2020 will be held in a different format, because for the first time this music festival will be broadcast on a national television station on Saturday, 14 November 2020, from 21.45 to 01.00 WIB.
Demajors and Dyandra Promosindo, as organizers, considered this format as the best option in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. This format is also considered to be in line with the Synchronize Fest motto "A Festival for Everyone", where broadcasting on television is a significant breakthrough because it can be enjoyed by everyone.
"So how do we do this in this dark year, we can still hold a festival that can be enjoyed by all people. And SCTV also welcomes our wishes," said Program Director of Synchronize Fest, Kiki Aulia during a virtual press conference, on Monday (19/10).
With the theme "Celebration with Television", this year, Synchronize will feature 29 musicians who have been curated by the team. According to Kiki, the curation process that has been done is quite hard because of the many elements that have to be removed.
Usually, Synchronize Fest lasts for three days and presents hundreds of musicians, but this time it will only be held for three hours. For this reason, at the event, the musicians will only present two songs.
The presence of Synchronize Fest on TV is also expected to re-raise the existence of television among young people. Given that in today's digital era, young people prefer other digital platforms to get entertainment than television. Apart from TV, Synchronize Fest 2020 can also be watched through Vidio streaming service and AnggurOT YouTube channel.
Some of the musicians who will enliven Synchronize Fest 2020 include Rhoma Irama, Dipha Barus, Iwan Fals, Kunto Aji, Kangen Band Reunion, The Sigit, The Upstairs, Danilla Riyadi, Mocca, Marion Jola, Type X, and many more. This event will be hosted by Gofar Hilman and Reza Chandika.
