Singapore, 13 April 2017 – UFM100.3’s annual Mandarin music chart campaign, U1000 Music Countdown, will reveal its top song of the chart tomorrow, Friday 14 April, at Bugis Junction.
The two-month long campaign kicked off on 13 February where UFM100.3 called on listeners to vote for their favourite songs. Once the top 2000 songs were in, listeners were given two weeks to vote for their chosen hits on the UFM100.3 webpage. The top 1000 songs were revealed on-air on weekdays between 31 March and 14 April, from 9:30am to 6:30pm.
Listeners could also participate in the $1,000 cash giveaway by texting in their guess to the winning song by 13 April, 6:30pm. All they had to do was to SMS “UFM”, “Champion Song Guess”, “Name”, “NRIC” to 9717-1003. The $1,000 cash prize will be awarded to three lucky winners who have guessed the winning song correctly. The lucky draw will be conducted on-site at Bugis Junction after the champion song is revealed.
Running for the 5th year, this year’s final countdown event is expected to be bigger and better! The event will be held at Bugis Junction’s outdoor stage – Bugis Square (next to the fountain) and UFM100.3 jocks will be broadcasting live from the event – DJs Yuling and Chengyao at 1pm, DJs Jingyun, Wenhong & Limei at 4pm and the entire UFM100.3 crew at 6pm where they will countdown the last 15 songs of the chart. The estimated time for the reveal of the winning song will be at 7:30pm.
Listeners can take part in the on-site activities and games with DJs and win over $8,000 worth of vouchers sponsored by Bugis Junction’s tenants. Vitagen drinks will be given out to the public from 4.30pm onwards, complimentary of VITAGEN Less Sugar, our main presenter of the campaign. Listeners will also be encouraged to take part in a Facebook contest by posting selfies with Vitagen drinks and UFM fan-cards on the UFM100.3 Facebook page. Participants stand to win $1000 cash prize.
