To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR), the HKAMF 2017 Organizing Committee adopted the “20 years of Hong Kong Music” as the theme of this year’s Festival. A special performance segment will be added to the show on 17th March in which local young recording artistes will perform 20 local recordings to share the joy of the establishment of the HKSAR and to express the visions of a bright future.
To enhance public awareness of this segment, 50 titles have been shortlisted by the Organizing Committee based on the performance ratings recorded by the Phonographic Performance (South East Asia) Limited on local artistes’ recordings released in the past 20 years. The list is then offered for public voting at the www.hkamf.org and judging by a professional panel to come up with the final list of 20 titles. The final list will be announced at the Press Launch on 28th February 2017.
The voting period ends on 23:59:59 on 26th February, 2017.
