Zhangjiajie International Country Music Week is to unveil its curtain in Huanglong (Yellow Dragon) Cave Square on September, 10. At that time, people will enjoy a grand carnival of country music in the picturesque Zhangjiajie.
The First Zhangjiajie International Country Music Week came off at Huanglong Cave Square from May 14 to 18 in 2009, serving as a milestone of integrated development of travel and culture.
The six-day music week this year aims to display and exchange country music across the whole world, and promote the development of national cultures. At present, thirty-one overseas bands consisting of 392 musicians from twenty-six countries and regions have been identified, while the list of eight domestic bands of the minority nationality is still up in the air.
According to Ye Wenzhi, general planner of Zhangjiajie International Country Music Week, efforts will be made to develop the music week into regular music festival and foster Zhangjiajie into an international brand as well as a holy land of country music after holding three to five music weeks.
