Yüksek Sadakat is a Turkish rock band and consists of: Kenan Vural - vocal, Serkan Özgen - guitar, Kutlu Özmakinacı - bass, Uğur Onatkut - keyboards and Alpay Şalt - drums. The band was formed in 1997 but became popular in early 2005 with their album Yüksek Sadakat. The bass player used to be the editor of a music magazine called Blue Jean. Their music is a mix of pop rock with powerful beats utilizing Turkish instruments, keyboard and guitar solos. The name of the band is a literal translation of the term High Fidelity (Hi-Fi) into Turkish.

In January 2011 it was announced that the band will represent Turkey in Eurovision Song Contest 2011 with the song Live It Up.
