Dali City

On April 26th-28th 2019, China will celebrate its first handpan and world music festival. We have chosen a beautiful place for this festival, Dali City Yunnan Province, located in the south of China. It has a pleasant climate, moderate temperatures, and beautiful scenery. It is also an ancient city with a long history.

We have invited a number of handpan and world music artists to the festival. We believe that the multiple workshops and concerts with a strong line-up will be surely worthwhile and definitely benefit the audience.

In these three days, we will have more than a dozen workshops. Each artist will have a workshop that focuses on the handpan as well as other instruments. All participants can choose their favorite musicians and workshops according to their needs. Evenly, after the concerts finish every night, we also arrange more activities for everyone.

During the festival, we will provide tent accommodation, food, and drinks for the participants. These are included in the ticket, with no charge separately.

During the festival, the meals we provide are free (dinner on 25th, breakfast +lunch+supper on 26th-28th, breakfast on 29th). If you are a vegetarian, after you sign up and pay, you can contact us to let us know that you are a vegetarian. We will prepare food for vegetarians according to the number of people in the dining area. The main meals we provide our local food. You can have a taste of Yunnan cuisine. Of course, we will prepare more vegetables and fruit salad, as well as fresh fruits for you. In addition to the meals, we will also provide free popcorn and 3 to 4 kinds of Chinese nuts snacks, as well as fresh fruit during the festival. Drinks we will prepare some natural fruit drinks, tea drinks and so on, and we will also provide beer for free (but please don't get drunk...😅 )
