This November, In hands with MAMA Event from France, Kaiguan Presents DongDong – a new urban event, a music festival and professional convention featuring a series of activities for delegates: conferences, talks and workshop as well as a batch of great artists hailing from China, Asia and the rest of the world that will be performing for both public and showbiz people. DongDong is all over Dongcheng district, spanning on 4 days and 5 iconic music spots. The idea here is of course to give more exposure to Chinese independent talents but also to provide a new hub to boost exchanges between East and West.
