Shanghai Jinshan this weekend is the latest addition (and edition) of the Zebra Festival, the “Channel Young Zebra Music Festival” or 星尚热波音乐节. Shanghai music fans will probably remember that last year’s festival was postponed and then rescheduled due to Typhoon Muifa but by all accounts and purposes went off without a hitch the weekend after with headliners such as Edison Chen, MC Hotdog, Joanna Wang 王若琳 and Xu Wei.
Originating in Chengdu, Zebra is back again this weekend on the Jinshan beaches for what we hope to be an equally successful and typhoon-free weekend of live music. This year, the regional lineup boasts Show Lo 罗志祥, Qu Wanting 曲婉婷, Aska Yang 杨宗纬 and Stanley Huang 黄立行; international acts include Kite (Sweden), Exile Parade (UK) and Yoko Yazawa (Japan) and local bands Nova Heart, The Mushrooms and more.
Full lineup and schedule here. If you read Chinese, peep at the cooperation between the festival and Taobao’s new celebrity stores initiative here. Activities there include a battle of the bands, beauty contest and suggested items to bring to the festival. Cool stuff, guys.
