A 35-meter-tall dome bathed in light, which is less than 1 kilometer away from the Qingdao West Coast New Area in East China's Shandong province, will serve as the main venue for a two-day music festival called Dome International Music Festival, on Aug 17 and 18.
The festival at the Qingdao Cosmopolitan Exposition International Convention Center, a landmark in Qingdao, will feature over 20 Chinese and international musicians, covering a variety of music genres, including pop, folk and world music.
"This is the first time we are having this kind of music festival in the Qingdao West Coast New Area, which was established in 2014," says Xiao Bo, the deputy general manager of the Qingdao Cosmopolitan Exposition International Convention Center.
"For a whole year, we will hold cultural events like music festivals and classical music master classes to entertain local audiences."
Xiao adds that the Dome International Music Festival is expected to attract over 20,000 visitors.
