And those "extra bits and pieces" includes a kids fun play area by no others than us - Awesome Kid's Club!
So finish up all Halloween celebrations during October, take a breath and head up to a relaxing, fun day with music, kids activities, drinks, food and lots of happy people around. Perfect weekend outing!
Headlining a diverse and exciting lineup of Chinese and international independent musicians is Yunggiema, the Tibetan artist who recently skyrocketed to fame, performing both traditional and not-so-traditional versions of her own original world-music infused songs and folk songs of the Menba minority people, as the runner-up of the 2013 Chinese Idol show, ; Japan’s master of the post-rock opera, World’s End Girlfriend; and Sainkho, Tuva’s most renowned throat singer. See the running order at the bottom of this message.
Held at the grand riverside creative center QianShuiWan, the GUINNESS® Wood+Wires Music Festival will be a weekend-long celebration of great music, great food and simply the greatest beer. An eclectic mix of music acts will be taking the house down simultaneously across the multi-level venue.
Fun for the kids (and parents)
Head all the way up to the roof top soccer pitch. Awesome Kid's Club is there making sure your kids will get busy with a huge Graffiti and Art Wall, bouncy castles, sports, bootcamp challenges, baby play area, games, jammin' zone etc.
Foods for all Moods:
There will be our Smorgasboard area, packed with local chefs and restaurants who will be serving dishes aimed to meet the needs of all discerning taste buds, Eastern and Western alike. Look out for exclusive GUINNESS® -inspired dishes, which will get you a bit drunkily as you eat – what could be better?
Participation is the Word:
As well as listening to the music there will be dancing sessions featuring sexy swing from Kick The Gong Around, and good old-fashioned square dancing presented by incoming fiddler Michael Ismerio. We round things off with a typical Chinese crosstalk comedy.
Uptown Records are coming down to make sure you do good things with your loose change. Uptown Records is one of Shanghai’s best record stores, with releases covering an eclectic range of genres from electronic to reggae and hits from bygone times. Super Sophia and DJ Sacco (of the famous Quartertop) will be curating the best of their monthly market for our browsing pleasure.
