The inaugural Be You festival saw Red Velvet performing alongside P-pop acts BGYO and BINI, as well as YouTuber Lady Pipay. Labelled as “an extraordinary celebration for People with Special needs”, the festival was held earlier this year on July 22 at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. The event also featured a selection of guest speakers talking about the topic of inclusion, though Neuwave Productions has not indicated if the December edition will also feature guest speakers.
