About WeekStar

  • WeekStar competition, is run inside our mobile app (Android / iPhone & iPad), starting on Tuesdays 10am KST and until Mondays 10am KST, and the winner, the one with more votes after a week, is selected as WeekStar (artist of the week).
  • There are always 20 nominated artists for WeekStar.
  • Airtime gift: All weekstar nominated artists will have as privilege, while staying in the weekstar poll, a guaranteed airtime in our main radio station, of not less than 3 songs per day, to showcase their music to our +800k monthly listeners. This is on top of our current programming that may have more songs by that artists.
  • Special programs gift: will be won by the first 3 in the poll.

    1st place: special program mixtape of up to 3 hours, broadcasted in our Mixtape channel, or a short showcase program of 20 to 30 minutes in our main Radio station, presenting some information of the artists & their best songs.

    2nd place: special program mixtape of up to 2 hours or showcase program also.

    3rd place: special program mixtape of up to 1.5 hours or showcase program too.

    In the case of rookie artist & those who have low number of released songs, a showcase program will be the option. In other cases, a showcase can be requested instead of a mixtape too (to be coordinated with a fanclub). Also, in the case any artists have only one or two songs released, the awarded gifts can be reserved for any time in the future, waiting for more songs released.

  • In the case that a winner requests a showcase program (through a fan club) instead of a mixtape, in order to not make other fans unhappy, both gift types will alternate, every time a gift is awarded; 1 week a showcase, 1 week a mixtape.
  • Programs are awarded for the next available week, in The Weekly Mixtape.
  • For 1st place, the same program will be broadcasted 3 times, on Sunday 10:30am KST (aimed to America), Sunday 9pm KST (aimed to Asia & Australia) and Monday 4am KST (aimed to Europe & Africa) to cover all the world timezones.
  • For 2nd place, the same program will be broadcasted 2 times, on Sunday 8:00am KST & 6pm KST.
