La Fete de la Musique Shanghai 2011 - Opening Concert

One of my favorite musical experiences while living in Toulouse, France was la Fete de la Musique (Make Music). Held annually in June throughout France (and now the world), the day is an open platform for any band/musician to hit the streets and perform for eager crowds - all for free!

China's first edition of la FĂȘte de la Musique was held in Shanghai to coincide with the World Expo to rave reviews from the media and fans alike. This year's second edition will run throughout Sunday June 19th, with an opening concert on Saturday the 18th. Held at 800 Show from 4-11PM in partnership with Shanghai-based label Zhu Lu He Feng, the opening concert will feature an impressive line-up of French and Chinese acts, including:

Moonrock (Folk/Jazz/Shoegaze) - 4pm to 4.30pm

An Lai Ning (Folk) - 4.45pm to 5.15pm

Joyce Jonathan (Pop-Folk / Acoustic) - 5.45pm to 6.45pm

Sonnet (Indie Rock) - 7pm to 7.40pm

Yu Guo (Pop Rock) - 8pm to 9pm

CURRY & COCO (Electro-Pop) - 9.20pm to 10.20pm

R3 (DJ) - 10.20pm to 11pm

After the opening concert, there will be an official after party organised by STD at DADA and Anar.

Stay tuned for more information on the Sunday 19th events, including the big Jam Session lead by John Nguidjol at Mao livehouse.
