The "Fête de la Musique" was first celebrated in Shanghai in 2010, as part of the Shanghai World Expo. It was celebrated again in 2011 and 2012, with each edition meeting success with hundreds of musicians, mostly from Shanghai, taking part in the event. This year, the "Fête de la Musique" will take place over two days (Saturday 22nd, and Sunday 23rd June) with more participating locations. Do not miss this great event of the Shanghainese music scene.

Saturday, 22.06: Big Opening Concert
The traditional grand opening concert will again introduce French bands to the Shanghainese public. This year Girls in Hawaii and April Shower will come especially from Europe to perform in Shanghai.

Girls in Hawaii
This Belgian pop-rock band was founded in 2002, and hit the big time with its first album "From Here to There". Its sweet and timeless pop conquered a large audience. The band was playing to sold out audiences and invited by famous festivals, in Belgium as well as in France. In 2010, consequently to the death of its drummer, the band decided to stop playing music. After a two-year break, Girls in Hawaii is coming back with a new album, and chose Shanghai for a live performance.

April Shower
This band, composed of five girls from Bordeaux was created in 2010. Warm and innocent voices, hypnotic bass, minimalist drums and ukulele are the ingredients of this vibrant and joyful pop. No doubt, the Shanghainese public will love this band!

Come and listen to free concerts all over the city. Xintiandi, Yangshupu, Sinan Mansions, Yu Garden, Duolun Streets, James Cohan Gallery, pavillon Rhône-Alpes, Wujiaochang, and many more will be opening their doors to music during the whole Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd of June. A unique opportunity to discover local or foreign bands celebrating music!
