Are you ready? Let's go KAMPing!
Day 1 of KAMP Singapore 2019 started with a bang with the opening act - GFriend. They started the show with their hit songs "Fingertip" and "Navillera", which got the audience adrenaline going. They thanked the fans for coming and hoped that they will have fun, followed by upbeat songs "Life Is A Party" and "Vacation", which riled up the crowd even more.
GFriend members Eunha and Yerin did some aegyo (cute actions) for their fans at the request of Sowon even though they protested that it did not match the mood of their next song to no avail. The girls then wowed the crowd with a ballad version of their 2016 hit Rough and their 2019 B-side track A Starry Sky, with Yuju belting out high notes that blew everyone's minds away.
GFriend requested for the crowd to practice and sing "Time For The Moon Night" with them and ended their set with their latest songs "Fever" and "Time For The Moon Night", where all Buddies in the crowd sang along.
Following GFriend was a surprise guest not in the original lineup of performances. Recently debuted soloist AleXa riled up the crowd with a powerful dance piece leading into her debut single "Bomb", a Brazilian funk with electronic beats. AleXa shared how she loved the atmosphere at KAMP 2019 and then performed cover dances of Monsta X's "Dramarama" and B.A.P's "Warrior", which made the crowd cheer even louder.
Ha Sung Woon performed on stage next, eliciting screams from the girls in the audience with his hit debut single, "Bird", an upbeat cute song that melted the hearts of all the girls around. Sung Woon then shared with the crowd how it's been a while since he was here in Singapore and he was happy to be back.
Following his ment, Sung Woon performed "Tell Me I Love You", a cheery confession song, and "Don't Forget", his first solo single where he collaborated with his fellow former Wanna One bandmate, Park Jihoon.

Sung Woon ended off his set with the songs "Bluemaze", "Blue" and"What are you doing today?!"from his latest album, "BXXX".
The star of the night had to be Chungha, with one of the loudest cheers of the night when she appeared singing "Snapping", a Latin-inspired pop song with an intense, seductive number. Although Chungha is one with a small stature, her stage presence that night was amazingly powerful and she also attributed it to the Singapore audience, saying that she gets her best energy from her fans who cheer her on.
Chungha then performed her hits "Gotta Go", "Rollercoaster" and "Why Don't You Know", which got the crowd hyped up and singing along.
Chungha surprised fans with her last performance, a cover of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj's "Bang Bang". Fans of Chungha would have known that this performance paid homage to her Produce 101 days, where her dance cover performance of this song with other trainees went viral, ending her segment on a high note.
The last act of the first night, NCT 127 started their segment with their powerful debut song "Fire Truck" and "Cherry Bomb". NCT 127 was in Singapore for their first ever concert in July and they said that they had "missed the fans since their last concert".

Sonnet explained that these songs were what she sang on the variety programme "King of Masked Singer" and she was the the female singer with most wins on the show.
Sonnet then covered other songs that she sang on the programme "King of Masked Singer". She paid tribute to late SHINee member Jonghyun by singing "Y Si Fuera Ella" as the audience's light bands turned the stadium into a wave of pearl aqua - SHINee's official colour. She then sang her own song "Solar Eclipse", an OST of the Korean drama "Flower Crew Joseon Marriage Agency".

Stray Kids made a strong impact for their first performance in Singapore, ending their set with their ever-popular songs "Double Knot", "Victory Song", "My Pace" and "Get Cool".

I’mma make you Super Clap", leaving fans howling.
