The Shanghai International Music Festival

The Shanghai International Music Festival was founded in 2001 as a way to celebrate music in all of its forms in China's largest city. It was created when the Shanghai International Radio Music Festival and The Shanghai Spring International Music Festival merged.


The festival is held annually and is packed with a variety of concerts. Major international classical groups such as the Prague Symphony Orchestra will be performing in 2013.

Visitors will also enjoy uncommon events that reflect the roots of the festival, like a foreign radio music program exhibition, The Chime Bell Award, a radio music academic exchange and conference, excellent DJ shows and competitions, and an audio and video data exhibition.
